Our eyes, ears and taste buds were very well pleased yesterday evening at the Cuisine and Wine Bistro, 1422 W. Warner Rd, Gilbert, Arizona when the angelic voice of Jill Cohn caressed our ears while we sipped a delicious red blend. The wonderful melodies emanating from Jill Cohn and her guitar were patched thru the ceiling speakers so all attendees in this full-to-capacity venue could enjoy this three hour performance at a volume level allowing for conversation yet also allowing for full musical enjoyment. The two fifteen minute breaks seemed well placed and not too long.
Jill Cohn had two guitars but only played the second guitar on two songs, it seems. I asked her why and she told me the second guitar had a “Nashville” tuning where the two lowest toned strings are replaced by thinner strings and tuned an octave higher, giving the guitar a full mid high sound when strummed.
The smooth voice of Jill Cohn was always in our consciousness, even when conversation diverted our attention and on every one of the many moments she briefly went up with her melody it would always briefly perk up our ears in a way best described as a ray of sunshine on a cloudy day. We were not ready this Jill Cohn performance to end.
I also write cd reviews for Country Music News International and my review of the most recently released Jill Cohn cd “Heartstrings Touching Ground” is now published.
