Claudia Campagnol - I'm Strong (CD)
Claudia Campagnol's voice is extremely powerful, yet warm and soulful. She takes inspiration from pop and R&B, and delivers a mature performance in a distinctive jazz fusion style, showcasing an impressive flair for improvisation and vocal arrangements.
You can call it jazz, pop, R&B, or soul - or you can call it whatever you want. The album "I'm Strong" is on an international top level - with a broad crossover appeal.
Claudia Campagnol has worked with names like Stevie Wonder, John Blackwell, and Nils Landgren to name but a few. And world-class musicians Jimmy Haslip, Vinnie Colaiuta, Gerard Presencer, and Eliel Lazo are guest starring on this long awaited album.
The album is of an extremely high sound quality - mastered by Grammy Award winning producer/engineer Erik Zobler, L.A.
