"In Full Bloom" by Margaret Murphy (Jazz Artist from Chicago, Illinois (IL))

"In Full Bloom" by the talented Margaret Murphy is a flavorful assembly of enchanting jazz tunes. Igniting this album's flame is the groovy "I'm Walking," which wastes no time in showing off the amazing instrumentation, namely jazz piano leads, that defines all of this record. With romantic lyrics arranged to unforgettable melodies, the appeal of this record goes far beyond just great musicianship. Margaret's powerful, soulful, and effortless vocal performance outshines every other aspect of this album. The emotionally touching "Pearls" slows the pace a bit, and allows Margaret's vocal ability to shine with its full potential. Polished with unrivaled production, if you are a fan of soulful, smooth jazz, you will thoroughly enjoy "In Full Bloom."
