We Are Water
Jocelyn Medina's jazz styling's are pleasant yet retain enough edge to be challenging. "Cosmic" has some things to say about the human condition, and Medina's languid
vocal style sits well with the cool backing. "My First love Song" is a ballad with plenty of vocal expressiveness from Medina, as she recalls Diana Krall. "Same Mistakes"
gets Bodek Janke to show his skill as a percussionist while Medina sings in a relaxed way.
"Close to Home" sees her pour her heart out, to a soft setting complete with a flute. She has a great voice and its well used here. It's a great album.
