About the Album

Dirty Secret is the opening track on the debut album by Joan Hutton & Sue Orfield. To tell you a little about it I'll quote from Dan McClenaghan's album review, since he puts it more eloquently than I would! "Joan Hutton and Sue Orfield's Take that Back opens with the smooth dark chocolate crooning of Hutton's bass clarinet. The tune is "Dirty Secret," a Hutton-penned, mid-tempo gem. And initially what comes to mind is (Bennie Maupin and Eric Dolphy aside) how rarely we hear the bass clarinet on a jazz album. Then Orfield's tenor sax enters and interweaves lines with Hutton's, and the pairing of sounds presented with the two reeds and the piano, bass and drums rhythm team is something special indeed."


Dirty Secret; That it would not hurt you; My Six; Memory Bait; Hope For The Girl; Dodged It; Heading North; Steezy; OH!; Curtains.
