  • On MAIDEN VOYAGE, jazz vocalist Freelon tackles an intriguing batch of tunes, all of whose lyrics (and many of whose music) were written by women. Stand outs are "Four Women" by Nina Simone, which provides revealing characterizations of four black women, and "Sepia Wing" - a lyric version of Marian McPartland's "Threnody," with lyrics by Freelon herself. An understanding of the feminine spirit is what Freelon seems to be striving for here. The contemporary jazz arrangements by Michael Abene give a fresh and unified feeling to many different styles and eras of song. As an added surprise, Herbie Hancock himself guests on piano on Freelon's version of his titular composition.
