Description
Being located in the D.C. area, we at Daedalus grew up with Sweet Honey, so we immediately grooved to the a cappella signature song "Breaths" ("Tis the ancestors' words, when the fire's voice is heard / Tis the ancestors' words, in the voice of the water"), but when the tunes backed by a jazz trio commenced, we can only say that it's a brilliant idea whose time has come. How exquisitely pleasurable it is to hear this all-female quintet cover classics made famous by Simone, Holiday, McRae, Smith, Vaughan, and Lincoln as well as Odetta ("Can’t Afford to Lose My Man"; "The Midnight Special") and Miriam Makeba ("Pata Pata"). Whether harmonizing on "Wild Is the Wind," "Feeling Good," "Love Me or Leave Me," "See Line Woman," "Trouble in Mind," "Freedom Suite," "Tell Me More and More and Then Some," or the salsa-flavored original "Let There Be Peace," Sweet Honey will put a smile on your face and a lilt in your heart.

"Their sheer musicianship can still raise goosebumps."—The Guardian

"From a cappella teeming with earth-shattering and firm vocal harmony to soul-rousing gospel to the ethnically rich sounds of Africa to blues–jazz, this mighty group comes bearing the gift of a live helping of their riveting style."—The Smooth Jazz Ride
