Night Songs – China Moses
China Moses is the narrator of the night; her new album Nightintales shines a fascinating light on her journey through night time’s terrain. She conjures up images and moods with her warm, astonishingly flexible alto voice, as figures and places take shape in the listener’s imagination. Eleven expressive songs recount the intoxication of love ("Hungover") and its bitter ending ("Whatever"), of vices ("Nicotine") and passions ("Put It On The Line"), of awakenings and courage ("Running").
It’s a sparkling kaleidoscope that blends jazz, soul, R & B, blues and pop into a multi-faceted whole. Her 2008 debut album "This One's For Dinah," a tribute to the legendary Dinah Washington, established China Moses as a major voice. Now recognized as a jazz and soul diva with her own style, Moses has no need to hide behind her idol. On her new album Nightintales, China sings her own compositions. Chapeau! For the listener, many a pleasurable evening enjoying this rich, multi-hued jewel of an album lie ahead.read more
But who is this woman with the mysterious name China Moses? She is the daughter of jazz singer and multiple Grammy award winner Dee Dee Bridgewater. Her father was the legendary theater, film and television director Gilbert Moses.
So the apple didn’t fall so far from the tree. Music has played an important role in her life, as well as acting, as her concerts prove. China Moses dared to take her first steps as a singer while still a teenager (the video clip of her first single, "Time" (1996) on YouTube is well worth watching!). In 1997 she released her debut album, "China", which included a guest appearance by hip hop legend GURU. With two more acclaimed albums as well as numerous feature engagements, she has established herself as a much-sought-after vocalist in the emerging R&B scene of her chosen home town, Paris. She also worked as a presenter on MTV France.
