Imagine a more soulful Michael Buble minus the crass commercialism with just a touch of beatnik Bobby McFerrin added and the end result is a delightfully eclectic and truly original vocal stylist that is taking Europe by storm - enter David Linx.

Essentially a trio recording with some brilliant guest artists including Nguyen Le on guitar and Paolo Fresu on flugelhorn and the synergy created on this release is captivating. A more than competent vocalist with a soulful and engaging tonality, Linx has penned seven originals clearly demonstrating an artistic gift that goes well beyond the obvious vocal magic of his craft.

While at first glance the tunes would appear to be more of a hodgepodge of this and that to perhaps show off a more one trick pony side of a vocal want to be, Rock My Boat is one of a few well thought out and even better orchestrated vocal releases of the year. The tunes range from Mose Allison to Ivan Lins and contain a smoldering sense of style and swing making as often said, "old school turn new cool." Linx shines on his own soulful and swinging self titled composition "Rock My Boat." A light Brazilian flavor shines through on "Just Give Me Some Time" and then Linx kicks the vocal pyrotechnics into high gear with a Bobby McFerrin like performance on another original "Make It Up." Sonic texture, flavor and a vocal tapestry of originality best describes David Linx. Refreshing.

Linx has performed with such jazz greats as Toots Thielemans, "Sweets" Edison and Steve Coleman. This Brussels native is infusing a refreshing style and swing back into vocal jazz making Rock My Boat a rock solid release and certainly worth a look!
