I had to stop and think for a few minutes before I could put Carrie
Clark into a genre. Even though she has many influences that flourish
on her EP "Reverie," like pop and blues to name a few, her strongest
is jazz. Her voice set to the music compliments her light and inviting
lyrics. It completes the fruition of each song. The instincts of her
timing are crucial in closing this circle of events.
In just five tracks, she shows how comfortable she can be in any musical
setting. From the swing of "A Little Romance" to the sweet pop whisperings
of "Angel," Clark puts her heart on the line and gives her very best with each song.
For a short running EP there is an awful lot of ground covered, and
you walk away satisfied yet yearning for more of her angelic vocals
to soothe and allure you. I see the makings of real jazz diva in Carrie
Clark. One listen to this CD and you will surely agree.
