Toronto native Kellylee Evans is a unique voice in the urban-jazz world. Her debut album, Fight Or Flight?, is an eclectic but focused effort, held together by Kellylee's rich, expressive, effortless vocal range. Evans, now based just outside Ottawa, ON, went down to New York for a whirlwind two-day recording session at a Manhattan studio. Helping out on the album was bassist and co-producer Lonnie Plaxico (Wynton Marsalis. Cassandra Wilson, Cyndi Lauper), keyboardist/pianist George Colligan (Cassandra Wilson, Ravi Coltrane), guitarist Marvin Sewell (Cassandra Wilson, George Benson, David Sanborn), drummer Steve Hass (Billy Joel, The Manhattan Transfer), and percussionist Kahlil Kwame Bell (Erykah Badu, Roberta Flack). Trumpet player Alexander Norris and accordionist Rachelle Garniez lent their talent to a track a piece. The recording took two days and 10 of her original compositions and two covers, the classics "Round' Midnight," and "Climb Ev'ry Mountain".
