About the Album

This classic wartime love song composed by Manning Sherwin, with lyrics by Eric Maschwitz, gets an innovative twist that only arranger Dave Coules can conjure. Bassist Ron Johnston’s soulful opening on Track Two of “FIFTH ELEMENT” sets the tone for vocalist Nina Richmond, at her best, with phrasing and control to rival the finest. Johnston together with drummer Glenn Anderson and pianist Dale Scaife have a marvelous connection and sensitivity that provide the perfect touch to support not only the vocals but the eloquent and heartfelt solo of Dave Coules on tenor saxophone.
