Buy “Patti LaBelle – Bel Hommage – Music” Online
This album shows Patti at her singing BEST! The phrasing, the nuances are just impeccable. This is for all the naysayers that say all Patti does is "scream". She does hit some of her signature high octave belts but she also really focuses on really delivering the song with emotion, soul and approaches each one with a sense of true intimacy. Just incredible. Wild is the Wind, Don’t Explain and Softly as I leave you will leave you breathless. Peel me a Grape, I can cook are fun numbers and then of course Moanin’ and the Jazz in you are excellent. I can’t really nitpick too much about the album. She’s a 73 year old women who can STILL rock with the best of them. A must have for all Patti fans and Jazz fans alike. You won’t regret it I promise. Check it out!
2017 album of jazz standards from the great singer, 72 years old & still going strong!
Bel Hommage Review
"Bel Hommage" is truly a Beautiful Tribute to Jazz. The polished & traditional jazz sound transports you to a Smoky nightclub. When you listen to the Album from begining to end you will wonder why it took Patti almost 56yrs to tackle Jazz songs. That will remain a mystery. "Wild is The Wind" is the marvelously produced standout track and Patti makes sure you will never forget her version. "Wild is The Wind" should win Song of the year at the Grammys. "Bel Hommage" should win Grammys for Album of the year, Record of the year & Best Jazz Vocal Album. Jazz Critics & Jazz Singers will be impressed by Patti’s strong effort. The Album is an A+ and 5 Stars. -Read Reviews-
All of the songs are excellent, but my favorite is "Wild Is The Wind. " It has a mellow sound and takes me back to the "old school days". She has hit this CD out of the park figuratively speaking. It is the next best thing to having Patti in your home.
