Tanja Raich elevates classic covers on new album
(Published: September 01, 2016)

Jazz-pop artist Tanja Raich showcases her honeyed and mesmerizing vocals in her album Frameless Pictures. After being in the music industry for many years, Raich has finally released her own album featuring songs that are dear to her heart. What makes this record unique than other cover albums is Raich's ability to elevate and recreate the songs into something more dynamic and endearing.

Fitting for a first track, "Even the Pain" is rejuvenating and refreshing. Originally sung by Richard Page of the Yellowjackets, Raich gives a vibrant take on this song. Her soulful voice accompanied by tribal musical elements transforms this grief-laden song into a beautiful send-off. Amidst the lyrics, "And we all take what we're given/Even the pain," Raich's rendition gives listeners not only hope but also a shining light in their hearts.

If you come across this album and not look at the songs, you would think you'll be listening to a Latin American track as soon as this song kicks in. But it's actually the late Michael Jackson's "Billie Jean." Her reimagining of this song is fused with jazz elements and Latin American beats. Just when you thought you can't make any Jackson better, Raich comes along and proves you wrong.

A U2 original, "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For" is one of the most addictive tracks on the album. Raich renders a more stripped-down and mellow version of this song. It not only showcases her enthralling vocals but also her spot-on low registers. What made this version more lovely is the jazz and reggae elements infused in the song. It flawlessly shifts from slow to fast rhythms, taking listeners from a walk in the park to a sprint around the bend before slowing down again to a leisurely gait.

This album is a trove of many treasures. It's a gathering of excellent musicians getting the best treatment from the talented Raich. She plays the great host, making sure that the greatness of these classics are magnified and their unexplored sides are unveiled. What Raich has produced is a gift that keeps on giving with songs that bring back so many memories while creating new ones in her stunning renditions.
