British singer-songwriter Katriona Taylor releases an impressive set that creatively blends together jazz, Latin and soul music while paying tribute to some of the major blind artists. Her appealing voice is showcased on six of her originals and six inventive cover songs while joined by top musicians from the United Kingdom. She has a warm and attractive voice, is a skilled and sensitive songwriter, and infuses her originals and favorite standards with honest emotion. Blind Passion is her first album in a dozen years during which her singing has gained maturity and depth without losing its power and warmth. The music on Blind Passion honors the top blind musical artists (including Stevie Wonder, Ray Charles, Jose Feliciano, and Diane Schuur) who have inspired her. Legally blind since she was seven, Ms. Taylor has nevertheless had a busy and productive life, one filled with accomplishments. For this memorable project, Katriona is joined by keyboardist Peter Hammond, pianist John Crawford, bassist Dave Jones, drummer Chris Nickolls, Vasilis Xenopoulos on tenor, soprano and flute, Dominic Ashworth on Spanish guitar, and Amy Winehouse’s guitarist of choice Robin Banerjee.
