Mindi Abair: Wild Heart by Jeff Winbush, published on July 2, 2014. Wild Heart continues Abair's break from the tried-and-true with the throwback soul of her last album, In Hi-Fi Stereo (Heads Up, 2010) and represents a bold break from the tried-and-true formulaic approach too many of Abair's peers settle for. Is it perfect? No, but rock n' roll is supposed to be a little messy and ragged as Abair and Gregg Allman's cracked singing on "Just Say When.

WILD HEART is the seventh full-length solo studio album by American musician Mindi Abair. Background and recording.
With a career that's yielded six albums that have topped the charts to go along with producing 10 No. 1 radio singles, you could say that saxophonist Mindi Abair has found her niche in the world of contemporary jazz. But you would be wrong. For perhaps no album better reflects Abair's reckless abandon and cross genre talents than her new album, Wild Heart. Wild Heart’s roots actually go back to when Abair found herself moonlighting -performing a lot of rock and roll, blues and organic music
