That long-awaited new album is here!
The artists of Spirited pride themselves on the in-the-moment experience they bring to audiences as a band; Rich Syracuse, upright bass, describes the album as “a snapshot in time, an effort to capture the essence of our live performances…” Dedicated to Joan’s father “whose Lousiana Tsalagi roots nourished her jazz soul…” the Uprising ride grabs listeners with a fresh, easy-swinging straight-ahead Nat King Cole cover and takes off from there for parts unknown… always earmarked by the warmth and connectedness that defines a Spirited experience – one which listeners can finally take home!
“…a funky Brazilian undercurrent that will have you dancing in the aisles…”
