Don’t Tempt Me is the debut album of Sarah McKenzie. This may be her debut album but she isn’t new to the jazz music scene, having performed regularly with James Morrison and singing backing vocals for Michael Buble.
Sarah McKenzie is a 23yr old pianist, vocalist and composer who graduated from the West Australian Academy of Performing Arts.
“Sarah McKenzie is a musical marvel. She sings with the kind of phrasing that only a true jazz singer can come up with while her groove of the piano is the stuff that makes people want to play jazz. Don’t miss a chance to hear this lady perform live!” James Morrison
Don’t Tempt Me is jazz music at its finest. Very brassy and perfectly complemented by the sultry sounds of Sarah’s vocals it is quite toe tapping. The toes start quite subconsciously and before you know it you’re moving along in time.
Critics around the country have recognised the Australian Sarah McKenzie as a once in a generation talent. This album release is a milestone in the career of the young Australian, sure to be one of many major milestones in a promising career if this album is anything to judge by.
The album was produced by Chong Lim and features a track with James Morrison. It’s a must have for jazz fans and sure to be the first of many album releases for this very talented Melbourne based young jazz musician.
