You Are There- Review

Shawnn Monteiro’s latest album You Are There is a fine documentation of her high caliber vocal prowess. This Providence, Rhode Island chanteuse showcases her prodigious talents in a variety of musical settings, arrangements, tempos employing everything from breathy vocals, sustains, scat, and a large vocal presence.

Monteiro has accomplished a great deal on her latest album, You Are There. She swings. She scats. She croons. She features giants like Michael Renzi, Kenny Barron, and Dave Zinno in a true artist’s effort to flesh out her musical vision. What this album, years in the making and showcasing decades of knowledge, has to offer is huge. Produced by Monteiro and Steve Rizzo at Systems Two Sound and at Stable Sounds in Portsmouth, Rhode Island, You Are There can be appreciated for its resonance as well as its talent.
