Time Will Tell is the new album from Toronto’s Jodi Krangle, and features the Chris Conway Trio. I’ll Be Seeing You opens up the release and will immediately draw fans in. There is a robust warmth to Krangle’s voice that feels steeped in the early 20th century, lifted to a higher plateau to emotive and punchy piano work and on-point percussion. The production of this track is rich and life-like, making it easy for listeners to imagine they are in a nightclub or venue watching Krangle live.
The Water is Wide takes a contemporary take through pop and jazz styles; the track would not be out of place in a Broadway production. While the piano creates the backdrop upon which Jodi’s vocals lay, it is the sheer vocal range that is achieved here that will have listeners falling over each line. The inclusion of woodwinds and additional vocals to this composition establish this as a high-water mark for Time Will Tell.
Sex and Chocolate is a perfect fit for the modern (1940s-1960s) sound; the track soars with peppy vocals, a snap-track, and a smart, sultry attitude taken by the leading lady. Too Soon For Forever is a touching and quaint effort that will be understood by anyone that has fallen in love. The piano/vocal dynamic succeeds here like no other.
Goodnight my Love is the final track on Time Will Tell, and provides a strong punctuation to the album. The track is different enough from the rest of the fare on the album to give listeners a brief peek into the styles that Krangle may broach on a follow-up to this release. Make it a point to visit Krangle’s website and social media accounts for samples from Time Will Tell and the latest news about this interesting performer.
