In hindsight the early 21st century is going to look like a golden age for jazz vocals, an era defined by the emergence of an international array of artists possessing strikingly original sounds. No one better embodies jazz’s glorious profusion of vocal talent than Austrian-born Maria Neckam, a singer possessing an exquisitely calibrated soprano and a poetic sensibility informed by avant pop, contemporary classical music and post-bop improvisation. Her new album Unison, slated for release June 6th on Sunnyside, captures her in all her kaleidoscopic splendor, delivering a program of exceptionally divergent original songs that sound unlike any other singer on the scene
