Firey String Sistas!: That's What She Said…

The Firey String Sistas! is an all-female New York based quintet featuring you guessed it, strings. The band consists of Nioka Workman (cello, vocals, percussion), Marlene Rice (violin, vocals, percussion), Melissa Slocum (acoustic bass), Mala Waldron (piano, vocals, percussion) and Karina Colis (drums, percussion).

This talented ensemble combines jazz, blues and other styles like world music but really this is first and foremost a jazz album inundated with nice melodies and uncompromising musicianship. Every song features some excellent soloing, whether it be bass, piano, violin or cello. It is an interesting approach to jazz and by no means is this a self-indulgent album. The solos are always tasteful and fit the scope of the song. The melodies can be spry and upbeat as in the soulful jazz of the album opening "Shine" and the solo filled "Ellie" with some nice scat style vocals or more subdued like the calming "Adversidad" and the slow and ethereal jazz of "Fantasy".

Besides the great musicianship That's What She Said… is an album that breathes heart and soul. One can't ask for anything more than that.
