Album Description

With Nancy Wilson & George Shearing's 'The Swingin’s Mutual' as a model, Washington, DC-based vocalist Darden Purcell and co-producer, arranger, guitarist and husband Shawn envisioned a modern take on that quintessential 1960s sound for her third recording as a leader. Enlisting the dynamic New York vibraphonist Joe Locke, along with pianist Todd Simon, Jeff Reed on bass and drummer Todd Harrison, her sextet tackles the virtuosic soli passages of Shawn's arrangement of "Willow Weep for Me," captures the intimacy of Johnny Mercer's title track, and swings hard behind Darden's Annie Ross-inspired lyrics on "Chatterbox." "Whether deftly delivering lyrics, or joining the ensemble in intricate musical lines, Darden is completely at ease and in control...this is music making at the highest level." - Alan Baylock
