Live Review: Angie Wells “The Truth Be Told” @ Chelsea Table & Stage in NYC 7/15/23

In a beautifully, immaculate and dazzling performance, Jazz songstress Angie Wells debuted at Chelsea Table & Stage in New York City in a mosaic of colorful and textured joy, sensitively and spirit.

“Jazz is smooth and cool. Jazz is rage. Just flows like water. Just never seems to begin or end. Just isn’t methodical, but Jazz isn’t messy either. Just as a conversation, a give-and-take. Jazz is the connection and the communication between musicians. Jazz is an abandon .”…Nat Wolf

Angie’s showcase was a tenacious adventure. Along with her supreme and talented band she held the hearts of her audience a willing hostage with her magnetic charisma with both original and old school jazz tunes, many from her new album “The Truth Be Told”, “There’s Always Time for Lovin”, “Do I Move You”, “Peel Me A Grape”, and more. It’s hard to put yourself out on stage and it’s hard to be vulnerable, but those who do that are the people who are the dreamers, the thinkers and the creators. And she is one of the magic people of the world.

She started her career in the intimate clubs in Paris, then conquered the jazz clubs of Los Angeles, and then the international jazz festivals. She has played with some of the biggest names in the jazz industry including John Clayton, Clayton Cameron, Kenny  Elliott, Sam Hirsch, Harry  Kim, Larry Koonse, James Leary, Edwin Livingstone, Josh Nelson, Rickey Woodard, and an array of others.

Angie’s overwhelmingly, talented band included: Antoine Drye on trumpet, Willerm Dellisfort on piano, Barry Stephenson bass, and Diego Ramirez on drums. They were all extraordinary on so in synch with Ms. Wells….

The evening echoed with joy and memories. It held the huge and enormous tumbling sphere of human emotions….a show that will be remembered forever.

5/5 Stars
