What do Cheryl Barnes, Sam Smith and Lady Gaga all have in common? They’ve all charted on the Mediabase Smooth Jazz list! Right now Cheryl Barnes’ cover of Joni Mitchell’s “Come In From The Cold” has joined the ranks of top names in smooth jazz. The single is off Cheryl’s new album Listen To This which was patiently rendered over a 5 year period prepared with tender loving care utilizing Los Angeles’ finest, including soloists saxophonists Rickey Woodard and Pete Christlieb, pianists John Hammond and Joel Scott, and trumpeter Nolan Shaheed. You can buy and listen to “Come in From the Cold” on iTunes.
Barnes’ was also nominated in two categories, Best Black Female Record of the Year and Best Black Female Video of the Year, for a Black Women in Jazz (BWIJ) award! Voting has closed, but they will announce the winners at their black tie event March 1, 2015. Fingers crossed for Cheryl! You can buy Listen To This on iTunes.
