ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Alma Micic was born and raised in Belgrade, Serbia. At the age of 16 she started performing with a local quartet at a time when jazz was making a big comeback in Belgrade. Soon she became a frequent guest vocalist with the Radio Belgrade Big Band and began touring and appearing at many local jazz festivals as well as television and radio broadcasts. In 1995, she received a scholarship to attend the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA. Alma graduated in 1999 with a BM in Jazz Performance.
Alma has been a resident of New York City since 2000. She has appeared at prominent venues such as the Jazz Standard, Scullers, as well as various international festivals and concert halls. Her first album "Introducing Alma", hailed as "a striking debut" by Jazz Review, received radio airplay throughout the US, including Voice of America, XM Satellite Radio and international radio stations in South America, Japan and Europe. Alma Micic was also featured in a one hour NPR/WGBH Radio special “The Jazz Songbook”.
Alma’s singing has been described as "confident, soulful, vulnerable, rhythmically savvy, with the most sensual vibrato you're likely to hear" (All About Jazz). Featured articles include Swing Journal (Japan), Concerto Magazine (Austria), Jazzman and Citizen Jazz (France). She has received numerous awards such as the Cleo Laine Award for Outstanding Musicianship and BRIO Award from the NY Arts Council.


On “The Hours”, Alma Micic is joined by a superb group of musicians including pianist Brandon McCune, bassist Sean Conly and drummer Gregory Hutchinson, along with guests Riley Bandy on alto saxophone and guitarist Rale Micic, who also produced the album.

The Hours
Alma Micic's strong, but subtle voice transports the listener to another place and it is clear that she feels her music deeply. Her singing in this beautiful album of mostly original tunes is further enhanced by a group of top quality musicians.

"The Hours"
Jazz Singer Alma Micic is a 'Tower Of Power' as she offers us her
vocal interpretations visa-vie her new CD project. Alma's natural phrasing & lovely vibrato make for a substantial vocal instrument.
I hear a deeper talent in her romantic ballad side. There's a warmth & sensitivity that's real along with an uniquely 'identifiable' sound............That of a robustly confident vocal proponent of the American Songbook. Since my last positive review of this gifted vocal artist, I'm hearing a more profound craft in her artistry along with this sense that she's gained a more valued exposure & confidence in what she's been created to do.
