Even a cursory listen to WHOLLY EARTH makes it seem fair to call Lincoln the inheritor of Nina Simone's lofty mantle. Like Simone, Lincoln employs an expressive, rough-edged tenor and an expansive compositional mindset in the service of something too multi-faceted to be pigeonholed as "jazz." Lincoln composed most of the tunes here and their variety runs apace with their high quality.
Listen to her trade lines with guest vocalist Maggie Brown on the Mexican- inflected "And It's Supposed to be Love." Take in the whirling dervish that is the joyous title track, drawing on jazz, African and Latin rhythms (a combination put to effective use throughout the album) as Lincoln wails jubilantly over Alvester Garnett's churning percussion. The depth and breadth of Lincoln's abilities as both writer and vocalist are obvious. Some of the finest moments are made possible by the interplay between Lincoln and vibes/marimba wizard Bobby Hutcherson, whose contributions practically rate co-billing.
Recorded at Avatar Studios, New York, New York on June 3-5, 1998.
