The title of this CD explains it all ! These songs are the statements of this pianist's multi-genre musical vocabulary. Smokin' piano, killer vocals, head nodding rhythms, a wonderful trip into the smooth, jazzy, multi-faceted world of its creator.
The music from Nj LadyFingers covers many genres. Just start at the first cut, and travel through all types of musical moods and tapestries. She is a classically trained pianist who decided to express herself by playing contemporary jazz, fusion, and a little R&B. Her lyrics are requested by many local artists. This CD follows her first CD "Eargasm", which also is a mixture of her moods.
A collection of smooth-jazz, fusion, R&B, and piano driven grooves for the smooth-jazz fan.
NORMITA RODRIGUEZ JEFFERY is the founder of "Ladyfingers", which is now a jazz quintet. A classically trained pianist since age six, she decided after college to branch out into more self expression in her music.
She also instructs piano students at her home studio in Tampa, Florida.
EARGASM is a collection of the musical styles that influence her. It is a journey through fusion, techno-jazz, R&B, reggae, blues, and just good music. She composed, arranged, and wrote lyrics for all the songs. Another CD is in the works.
As a tribute to the September 11 tragedy, Normita re-wrote lyrics from an earlier song she wrote, and penned "I Believe", an anthem for peace. It has been distributed to area radio stations for play.
