Seven is the debut recording of singer Alison Lewis, a truly a magnificent singer. Lewis’s soulful and soaring vocal range joined with beautifully sculpted arrangements makes for an outstanding production. The effort is comprised mostly of standards re-imagined to fit the singer’s talents perfectly. Lewis’s own compositions add nicely to the mix. Backing the vocals are Mitchell Forman on piano, organ and Fender Rhodes, Adam Schulman on piano, Andrew Synowiec on steel and acoustic guitars, Jude Gold on acoustic guitar, Kevin Axt and Paul Eastburn on bass, Ray Brinker handles most of the drum duties with Ricky Carter on sticks for one track. Anne King is also featured on trumpet along with Eddie Reyes on percussion. A really wonderful first outing from a talent that will have your attention from start to finish.
