Georgia Anne Muldrow Olesi: Fragments of an Earth
- Words: Patrick Sisson
- Label: Stones Throw
Coming from a family of free-jazz musicians, the daughter of a ‘60s torch singer, Georgia Anne Muldrow starts out well left-of-center before you hear her rich, neo-soul-style vocals. While there's a certain amount of astral traveling on her debut LP Olesi, the writer/Singer/musician grounds her ‘60s-style spiritual outpourings with modern-day boom-bap. The best moments are when this songbird comes down to Earth and emotes. The cathartic post-Katrina dirge "New Orleans" stings with pain and anger, while "Patience," a politics-imbued meditation on losing one‘s way, could be the mournful follow-up.
