Music Review:Maysa Leak-Metamorphosis

Maysa Leak’s ebony contralto is sensuously joyful and emotionally grown-up without the wintry melancholy of a Sade or the smoky jazzy soul of Anita Baker. Metamorphosis is her first album of original material since Smooth Sailing some three albums ago. The songs are soothing spa music based in Wes Montgomery’s smooth jazz aesthetic with snapshots of other genres and a story of heartbreak.
