Argentinean jazz singer Karen Souza recently released her fourth studio album titled "Velvet Vault." It features 11-tracks, beginning with the soft, smooth jazz of "I Fall In Love Too Easily," as you will instantly fall in love with Karen's vocals. She adds her own simple spin to Elton John's "Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me" as her voice shines with a slight accent. The tempo picks up with the sultry swing of "I'm Beginning To See The Light" and the steady pace of "Valerie," before her duet with Toku on the passion of "You Got That Something." She finishes up her new album with the Latin-jazz flair of "In The Blink Of An Eye," the quiet, emotional delivery of "Angel Eyes" and the orchestral ballad "Kids."

Next, from Santa Monica, CA comes the fourth album titled "Summer Cold," from singer/songwriter Mason Summit. His sound has been compared to Elliott Smith and Elvis Costello and he is currently studying songwriting at the University Of Southern California (USC) School of Music. His new 12-song album begins with the guitar strumming, up-tempo rocker "Almost Fell For It" as he delivers a nostalgic, alt-pop sound. Mason slows down for the more melodic delivery of "Take What I Can Get" and the acoustic folk/rock approach of "Voodoo Doll." He draws you in with the gentle vocals and acoustic strumming of "Catch & Release" and "Biting My Nails," before the full band joins in for the ballad "Summer Cold." Mason Summit closes out his new album with the inspirational pop tones of "One Good Thing" and the up-tempo alternative rock of "Stick It Out."

Finally from Los Angeles comes the latest release from organist Carey Frank, who teamed up with jazz guitarist Bruce Forman for the album "Something To Remember Him By." The album features 11 instrumental tracks that makes the most out of this duo's music skills, beginning with the swinging melody of "You Don't Know What Love Is." Frank and Forman find the perfect jazz groove for "All Of You" and add their own spin to the classic "Love Is A Many Splendored Thing." They get a little funkier with their sound on the more up-tempo feel of "That Old Feeling," before slowing down for the ballad "For All We Know." Frank and Forman finish up their new collaboration with the blues of "September Song," the exciting romp of "I Remember You" and the quiet grace of "Make Someone Happy."
