Sheila Landis has been a vital part of the Detroit area jazz scene since 1973, performing her unique style of vocal jazz and lending her distinctive voice to a wide variety of musical settings. She has performed in various local night spots and coffee houses, and has appeared in several jazz festivals, including the Montreux Detroit Jazz Festival and the Michigan Tastefest. Sheila has been voted seven time winner "Outstanding Jazz Vocalist" in the Detroit music awards by the Metro Times (Detroit). She sings without artifice or gimmick, and her delivery is honest and direct. Her voice is natural and unadorned. Landis approaches the music as if she's a horn player, and uses her voice to entice and enliven. She has become Detroit's secret scat diva! Sheila has been influenced by a wide variety of vocalists, from Sarah Vaughan, Carmen McRae and Betty Carter to Joni Mitchell and Aretha Franklin. She has absorbed these and other influences, filtered them through her own sensibility, and distilled from them her own unique sound. 'Parenthe-Seizure' is a collection of tracks selected from her extensive back catalogue of album releases (1981- 2002) that were originally released on her self financed 'Shelan Records'. This is the first ever album release in Europe of the music of Sheila Landis. The track listing ranges from the hardhitting fusion of swing and samba of the title track ('Parenthe-Seizure'), the Latin soul of Gershwin's 'Summertime' to the jazz dance mayhem of 'Who Will Buy' and the funky serenity of 'Leigh Ann's Dance'. These four tracks will also be available on limited 500 vinyl sampler for dj's (CRS032). Other tracks of note include the Rhodes laden samba of 'In A Place in My Heart', the brooding bop drenched 6/8 modality of 'Nightwalking', to the first ever vocal version of Lee Morgan's hard bop classic,'Speedball' and the Joni Mitchell inspired romanticism of 'Souviens-Toi'. All in all a fine introduction to the music and vocal stylings of one of Detroit's best kept secrets.
The second album by Sheila Landis – a great session of jazz vocals, with a light breezy finish! The set was recorded in Michigan – but it's got a flowing groove that feels like the best of the San Francisco scene at the time, lightly dancing vocals with a hip edge, in the mode that Mark Murphy was using a lot at the time. The group is tight in a small combo mode – with a mixture of acoustic piano and Fender Rhodes, plus just the right amount of guitar and saxes to give the tunes a bit of flourish. The album's filled with great original tunes – including "Love Robs Your Reason", "Where You Gonna Put Your Blues?", "There's Never Enough There For Me", "Lonely Wine", and "Guess I'll Call It Love" – plus the wonderful groover "Parenthe-Seizure", which you'll recognize from the Jazz Bizniz compilation! First time on CD, and with the bonus track "Starlight The Song That's In Your Eyes".
