At the Half - 2011

Here are my choices for the five best albums of the year so far. 1. Rosita Kèss - Northern Sky Listen to Where Should I Go Italy's Loss is Our Gain: Rosita Kèss is a talented singer, songwriter, and musician, originally from Venice, Italy. When she's not traveling and performing in Europe, she calls New York City home, and graces the good folks of the Lower East Side with frequent performances at Rockwood , often in tandem with singer-songwriter Richard Jullian. Rosita has a fresh voice and weaves folk, rock, jazz, Bossa Nova, and even some French cabaret into her mix. Northern Sky is a beautiful album that pairs well-written original songs with superb production that features infectious rhythms and instrumentation that varies from track to track. Richard produced the album, and also co-wrote and played on some of the songs. There are several great guests appearing on the album including Jim Campilongo who added his electric guitar to Where Should I Go. J
