Champian Fulton Trio Sometimes Im Happy

Don’t let her age fool you — jazz pianist and singer Champian Fulton is still in her early 20s, but she sings and swings with the authority of a seasoned pro. On her latest Venus release Sometimes I’m Happy, the Oklahoma-born, New York City-based double threat dishes up a tasty serving of gutsy, grooving trad jazz. From her tasty block chord solo and proud vocal prancing on the album’s opener “When Your Lover Has Gone,” to her spirited take on the venerable ballad “Darn That Dream,” Fulton (nimbly backed by bassist Neal Miner and drummer Fukushi Tainaka) finds her own way through even the most familiar of material. More than just another singerpianist on the retro scene, Champian Fulton is an artist to keep an eye and ear on. Jon Regen (Venus Records, champian.net )
