ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Spellbound is how audiences frequently find themselves at some point during a Sendy Brown performance. Sendy doesn't just sing; she creates. Carefully remaining true to the lyric, she moves souls with her passionate interpretations. Sendy is serious about her craft and her debut CD, Secrets of the Soul, showcases her exceptional talent and her commitment to the art.

Secrets of the Soul is a fulfillment long-awaited. As a child, Sendy's voice touched the hearts of the congregation at her father's church in Jersey City, NJ. At age 11, she was the featured soloist at a standing-room-only church concert. She continued singing the songs of Mahalia Jackson at area churches until she discovered her first Jazz album - a Billie Holiday recording. That led her to Howard University's School of Fine Arts in Washington, DC, where she became a protégé of Grady Tate. It was at Howard, during a master's class, that she impressed the legendary vocalist, Betty Carter. When her question to Ms. Carter on the creative process spontaneously became a song, the audience exploded in applause. Ms. Carter answered in song, "You just did it! You just did it!" and complimented Sendy on her voice.

Upon graduation, she began honing her craft in DC's local venues, including BET on Jazz Restaurant. A wife and mother, she ensured that she would remain close to both her family and her music by forming Music for Children, a company that teaches music appreciation, theory, and performance to children and provides music workshops and staff training to educators. Inspiring youth to understand and embrace music rekindled her desire to complete a creative project. She found time to develop a concept, assemble her most talented accompanists, and begin recording in the studio.

Secrets of the Soul is the culmination of her work. It is a strong statement and an exceptional display. A work of art from beginning to end, it takes the listener on a sonic journey through a range of emotions. With updated renditions of Jazz classics like 'Round Midnight, Skylark and When I Fall in Love, this recording will please a range of listeners. Jazz enthusiasts will love the scope of the CD (featuring ballads, Blues, and swinging, up-tempo tunes) as well as the range of her voice, her distinctive lyrical style, her phrasing, and her respect for the tradition. Fans of good music will love the refreshing arrangements and unique approaches to these classics.

Outstanding! beautiful voice; creative renditions; excellent musicians; Must-hav
This CD should be in every jazz lovers collection. She sings new life into each and every song. Even those who are not jazz enthusiasts love Angel Eyes, My One and Only Love, Skylark because of the depth and beauty of her voice and the passion she puts in each piece. The musicians are the best. The clarity and sound quality of the CD make me feel like I am at a live concert! Buy It. You will not be disappointed!

Infectious, unique, creative.
A singer becomes a stylist when he/she makes a song their own. That's exactly what Miss Brown does! One can hear the songwriting capabilities in her presentation. And the musicians are the perfect compliment. Looking forward to the next CD!

Sean Cleveland

Relaxing, Sensual, Heartfelt and Inspiring
I do not listen to Jazz on a regular basis, but after hearing Mrs. Brown's CD that has changed. I am a fan and will be for a long time.

YOUR MUSIC IS ABOVE AND BEYOUND THE STARS!!!
Ms.Sendy Brown
If trees were pens, ponds were ink, words could not explain the feelings and vibrations that your music produce because it is a beautiful manifestation of ALLAAH'S CREATION.

An incredibly, delightful musical experience; almost impossible to stop replayin
Sendy possesses an exceptionally beautiful voice. On this album she reveals her deep insight into the emotions embedded in each song as well as the ability to bring the listener into the journey of each song through her mastered use of her delightfully sweet voice.
Appreciation of this albums goes across generations. My own children are so much in love with this music that they have requested that we get multiple copies for the house & car.

This may be a debut album, but it is as rich as any prized vintage wine.
