Alma Micic’s album shows youthful exuberance, but also a mature assurance

By: Joseph Lang

Serbian-born singer ALMA MICIC has been on the New York scene since graduating from Berklee College of Music in the late 1990s.  She has performed both locally and internationally and produced three albums prior to her current recorded endeavor, That Old Feeling (Whaling City Sound – 099).  She enlisted guitarist Rale Micic, bassist Corcoran Holt, drummer Jonathan Blake and vibist Tom Beckham for this nine-tune collection.  Micic’s voice is immediately welcoming.  She opens with the title track, but there is nothing old in the feeling of her singing.  She has a youthful exuberance, but also a mature assurance that finds the heart of each lyric.  In addition to familiar tunes like “That Old Feeling,” “Moonglow,” “Cry Me a River,” “Honeysuckle Rose,” “Estate” and “Blue Moon,” she sings two Serbian songs, one of her own and a folk tune, plus Neil Young’s “Harvest Moon.”  All in all, That Old Feeling is a solid outing by Alma Micic.

O’s Place: Alma Micic characterized as “a first rate jazz singer”

WHALING CITY SOUND
ALMA MICIC/That Old Feeling:  A first rate jazz singer that deserves to be known west of New York, she knows how to wrap herself around the oldies in fine form.  A tasty set that is a hallmark for anyone that’s swirled martinis in a clip joint where a thrush holds court will know just what this all about and what treasures lie beyond the bytes.  Tasty throughout.

Lewis Porter-Phil Scarff Group distinguished as “a sweet return to sixties flavored jazz” by O’s Place

WHALING CITY SOUND
LEWIS PORTER PHIL SCARFF GROUP/Three Minutes to Four:  A sweet return to sixties flavored jazz when jazzbos felt free to take international chances under the wave of Beatlemania that was washing over everything .  Loaded with the smoking side of the east meets west jazzbo vibe of the times, this set will either take you back or make you venture further.  Real pros kicking it out for the sake of good times.
