Philadelphia‘s Lizz Fields has generated much buzz since stepping into the spotlight. Some may compare her to Jill Scott and they wouldn‘t be too far off, but Fields begs to be listened to in her own right. Musically, By Day By Night is contemporary jazz with a generous helping of hip-hop and soul. However, Fields‘ vocals and lyrics are the focal point here. With her silky, emotive voice, she sings of love gained, lost, and the maddening bits in between. She easily sucks you in with her playfulness, then blows you away emotionally. As debuts go, Ms. Fields‘ release will easily stand up to years of scrutiny.
