About the Album

Vocalist-songwriter Shelly Rudolph presents a unique and lyrical new song set, featuring legendary cellist David Darling whose layered textures blend with a subtle palette of piano-bass-guitar, and cameos from soprano saxist Devin Phillips. Along with six original songs are an inventively re-harmonized arrangement of "Stand By Me," and a sweetly soulful duet with Redray Frazier on Chris Pierce's "Slow Life." Long a poet as well, the album showcases her poetic and sensual expressivity on "The Way We Love," spoken against a sumptuous bed of Darling's cello tones and Tom Grant's piano. Rudolph's gospel-tinged originals, "Close Enough" and "Calling Me Home," open and close the session. Also joining Rudolph is guitarist Chance Hayden, bassist Dave Captein, and pianists David Goldblatt, Darrell Grant & David K Mathews. "A robust and captivating vocalist." - Jazz Times
