Choice Cut: Toni Redd takes us to "Paradise"

Ask any knowledgeable adult soul music fan about the truly great singers of our time, and it won’t be long before the name of Toni Redd comes up. Her expressive alto voice reminds some of the great Phyllis Hyman, but Toni has her own musical vision -- one that classic soul and jazz lovers will love. She’s made a career sharing the stage with many of the biggest stars of our time, and has become known as a “singer’s singer,” someone who other stars look to as a great vocalist.

We last heard Toni a couple years ago when she released her terrific album, Her ReddnessAnd now she is back with a brand new single that should get her fans revved up. Featuring the great Walter Beasley, “Take Me To Paradise” is a jazzy midtempo that Toni handles beautifully.

Toni tells us, “I recorded ’Take Me To Paradise’ because I love the song and I really wanted to show my listening audience the jazzier side of me just in case they forgot. Jazz is and has always been my first love and I also wanted to record with Walter Beasley because I felt that he would be a great fit for this song.”
