Bay Area-based vocalist Chloé Jean’s Fairy Tale Fail is a rousing success. Produced by guitar great, Ray Obiedo, the production features a colorful collection of self-penned originals and covers of tunes nicely rendered by Jean with a voice that deftly crosses soulful musical genres. In addition to Obiedo, the music is enhanced by the talents of keyboardist David K. Mathews, pianist Peter Horvath, bassists Marc Van Wageningen and Dan Feiszli, percussionist Peter Michael Escovedo, drummers Billy Johnson and Jason Lewis. On the brass side of things are trumpeter Mike Olmos and saxophonists Norbert Stachel and Charles McNeal. A wonderful recording and truly enjoyable listening experience.
