“Enjoy an evening with Natalie Fortes playing with blues hall of fame guitarist Chris Vitarello and bass player Anthony Candulo with a slow burn, simmering soft and subtle, tapping into both the sultry and sweet.
Her new CD aided and abetted by Grammy Award-winning producer Michael League of Snarky Puppy, who impeccably contextualizes her voice in a brilliant bath of crystalline acoustic and electronic textures, Forteza shines here with her dynamic range of rhythms and emotions. Obvious touchstones are Sade and Norah Jones, but I hear glimpses of Stevie Wonder, Astrud Gilberto, and Anita Baker as well.
Our very own open mic regular Kristi Kunhardt will perform the opening act. Her soulful sounds will be the perfect prelude to a truly magical evening.
