"Candace " Mahogany" Miller sings with Jason Davis Band Live at SAMBUCA"

"...On a recent evening, the Jason Davis group served up some John Coltrane and Grover Washington Jr. with elegant yet aggressive verve. A later set included a nice rendition of "What a Difference a Day Makes" by vocalist Candace Miller. Her sultry and emotive voice has a tonal quality similar to that of Cassandra Wilson but not as deep."

"Jam Box Is An Experiment That Works"

Sometimes artists become too vapid, experimenting with different genres of music, in an effort to appease their own egos. Very seldom can one truly go outside their genre—meshing different styles—and pull it off in grandiose style.

Enter Mahogany The Artist. Her new CD, Jam Box, is an experiment, replete with an amalgamation of jazz, hip-hop, and blues.

Think of a modern day jam session conducted by legendary Philadelphia music producers Leon Huff and Kenny Gamble—utilizing a full range of instruments, including an organ—and there is some idea as to the musical contents of this CD.

Mahogany, a Dallas native who began playing classical piano at six years old and drums at nine, grew up listening to Sarah Vaughn and Billie Holiday.

It’s obvious as to their influence on her, or that Mahogany prefers jazz over other music forms, but on Jam Box she shows her full range of musical talent. Seldom has an artist meshed so many styles with such fluidity and cohesiveness.

At times, Jam Box appears to be a crescendo of improvisation. Yet, it never fails in its congruency. Jam Box is tied together with enough palatable jazz to be a nice introduction to the artform for those who are neophytes of the genre.

There’s also something for everyone on Jam Box, from swing jazz to party tunes that will have listeners bouncing in their seats. Dominating the production are sultry songs for which Mahogany surely will become known.

Jam Box is an experiment that works.
