SPANKY WILSON AND THE QUANTIC SOUL ORCHESTRA 

''I'M THANKFUL'' 

(USA-UK, 2006) @

Spanky Wilson es una vocalista de soul, blues y jazz, estadounidense (de California), cuyo nombre artístico deriva del mote que recibió de pequeña, debido a los azotes (en inglés "spankings") que le propinaba su padre cuando se portaba mal.

Debutó profesionalmente a finales de los 60, grabando con diversas big bands, para posteriormente mudarse a París, en 1985, donde continuó su carrera. Además de editar álbumes en solitario (como Spankin' brand new, Let it be o Speciality of the house), ha trabajado con artistas como Duke Ellington, Lalo Schifrin, Marvin Gaye, Willie Bobo, Sammy Davis, Jr. o Jimmy Smith. Cuando su carrera parecía finalizada, el inglés Will Holland (conocido por proyectos como Quantic, The Quantic Soul Orchestra y The Limp Twins, así como por sus colaboraciones con la vocalista Alice Russell), admirador de la vocalista, se propuso encontrarla para proponerle una colaboración, cosa que consiguió en el 2004, al dar con su domicilio que, desde el 2000, esataba situado en California.

imageLa cantante fue la primera sorprendida de que un joven productor conociese su trabajo, así que aceptó encantada. Su colaboración consistió en la grabación de dos temas para el tercer álbum de estudio de Quantic, Mishaps Happening, del 2004: Don't Joke With A Hungry Man y When You're Through. Ambos quedaron tan satisfechos que decidieron componer temas para un álbum a dúo. Esta colaboración queda plasmada en el álbum I'm thankful, firmado como Spanky Wilson & The Quantic Soul Orchestra, grabado durante una semana en California, y editado en el 2006 por Tru Thoughts y Ubiquity Records. A partir de ahora el futuro discográfico de la vocalista depende de que otros productores quieran seguir colaborando con ella, o de que algún sello vea su potencial como artista en solitario. Espero que pueda relanzar su carrera, porque todavía tiene mucho que ofrecer, si le dejan. Por lo pronto, desde Abril del 2008 pudimos disfrutar del DVD Live in Paris (Tru Thoughts), grabado, de nuevo con The Quantic Soul Orchestra.

imageSpanky Wilson is an extraordinary Jazz singer with a unique voice, in terms of swinging, "bluesy", tender or warm, with an impeccable diction and phrasing. Her first influences were Dinah WASHINGTON, Nat "King" COLE and Louis JORDAN, then later Eddie JEFFERSON who taught her how to scat.

Spanky sings with a constant feeling, with emotion and sensitivity. Moreover, every one of her interpretations is a reflection of her song personality. Her uncontested charisma, her class, her charm and her sense of humor are many qualities that enhance her strong presence on stage.

Lastly, the cohesiveness of her group has been applauded by many of the greatest names of Jazz.
