Some artists are great in one single genre, others can master every kind of music thanks to their flexibility and artistry, but very few can turn into gold everything they sing. La Bek is one of the few, and today we had the big pleasure to listen to her latest release, “With You/For You”, an authentic piece of art, full of surprises, passion, and class.
Her latest studio album “With You/For You” is a timeless collection of songs that span from Jazz to Blues and much more, where she gathered outstanding musicians to help her deliver one of the greatest releases of 2019 and 2020.
The current Album “With You/ For You” fits right in with her impressive collection of musical work. The overall album is exceptional. Labek’s soul poured out into every track on this album.
The album is simply well produced. Labek reminded the listening/review team of Sade, giving the listener meaningful music that makes anyone keep listening. All the songs have a great message. However, the favorites are “Blues is good for the soul”, “Is it love”, the first track “Merci Bon Dieu” which is done in french with a great beat and composition. The track “Rain” with the guitar baseline pushes this record to the next level.
This artist is the kind of artist anyone can enjoy listening to all day. Labek’s vocals are perfect, you can clearly understand every word she is saying, it’s as if she is reading with music. The music does not overpower her exceptional vocals, it is just right and the mixing/blending brought out nothing but quality. The album is well produced with great production.
This Album is a must-have! With You/For You is a collector item. This Album is highly recommended. Labek should be a part of everyone’s music collection. The Album “With You/For You” is all platforms such as Spotify, Itunes, Youtube, Napster, Amazon and alike. Listen to the album below and see a few videos!
Up-stream media…‘With You / For You’ is the fourth album release from Jazz/Adult Contemporary artist Labek. Funded by a grant from the Berklee School of Music, the album is a powerful, modern take on the jazz genre, comprising a mix of originals and covers. Drawing from a deep well of human emotions and experiences, the album touches on themes of social justice, love and loss with a refreshingly stark honesty. The album is stylistically diverse, drawing on elements of Jazz, Blues, and even Tango. The mark of a truly gifted songwriter is to take the deeply personal and make it universal, and with that, on ‘With You / For You’, Labek has succeeded.
