Pianist Champian Fulton unleashes her creativity to spellbind the audience until they are "Speechless.” With her first date for Posi-Tone, listeners are invited to sit back and dig the mesmerizing sounds as Fulton bravely embarks on her first ever record of entirely instrumental performances. With an amazing program featuring her own original compositions, Fulton delivers a tour de force demonstration of her pianistic prowess. This trio date is also highlighted by the solid harmonic foundation of bassist Adi Meyerson and the bombastically explosive metrics of drummer Ben Zweig. With a straight forward, swinging and soulful presentation that covers a wide variety of styles, sounds, and moods, Champian Fulton succeeds in delivering a stunning revue that will certainly leave every listener "Speechless" and bring bright moments to jazz fans everywhere.

"...some full on whorehouse piano played with just the right amount of speak easy vibe that says ‘after hours spoken here'. A wildly charming date that brings a female perspective to the barrelhouse that Tatum couldn't, this trio hits it out of the park..." -Midwest Record

"genius" - Wolfgang Sandner, FRANKFURTER ALLGEMEINE

"4 Stars!" - JAZZ MAGAZIN

"great blues piano" - Richard Kamins, STEP TEMPEST

"sounds as if she loves...singing" - Scott Yanow, LA Jazz Scene

 “swinging, uncluttered, gently seductive” - LUCID CULTURE

“The latest from vocalist-pianist Champian Fulton is a tribute to Dinah Washington, which is great, but I’d be happy to hear Fulton if she were singing pages from the phone book. Swinging like crazy and burbling with creativity whether she’s singing or playing piano, Fulton, who turned 30 last year, would be a household name if the industry that propelled Norah Jones, Diana Krall and Jane Monheit to stardom could still work its magic.” Peter Hum, THE OTTAWA CITIZEN

“Fulton moves effortlessly and vividly from delight, to wistfulness, to wounded angst in a matter of seconds and makes it seem completely natural, the work of a deep and insightful individual and a rare force on both the keys and the mic.” - NEW YORK MUSIC DAILY

"display[s] maturity far beyond her years" - Ken Dryden, NEW YORK JAZZ RECORD
