Georgia's World (single)
2023 / MMG Records
Review by Kathy Parsons
"Georgia's World" is a single release from guitarist/composer Todd Mosby's upcoming album, Land of Enchantment, a collection of original pieces that explore Mosby's fascination with the mystique of the Southwest. Drawing on childhood memories, experiences and impressions as an adult, and his passion for Southwest artists including Georgia O'Keeffe and Ansel Adams, Mosby takes us on a colorful musical tour of this magical part of the US. "Georgia's World" obviously refers to O'Keeffe, and is a tribute to her life and times in New Mexico. The single is a (mostly) smooth jazz piece that includes wordless vocals (Laura Vall), a catchy yet relaxed bossa-nova rhythm (Vinnie Colaiuta on drums and Timothy Bailey on bass), keyboard/piano (Dapo Torimiro), cello (Adrienne Woods) and Mosby's distinctive electric guitar. It's a tantalizing sample from the upcoming album, and I can't wait to hear the whole thing!
"Georgia's World" is available from Amazon, Apple Music/iTunes and streaming sites including Spotify. Both thumbs up!
