Opening with a snappy "Invitation," this newly-found home recording shows off what producer Joel Dorn calls "prime Getz." Rodgers and Hart’s "Spring is Here" wafts and splashes through a fragrant rain chilled by Jack DeJohnette’s shivery brush work, but Jack sharpens the tempo for Chick Corea’s "Litha," sparking Stan and Richie Beirach to burning life. This is not another "Desafinado" compilation. This is Getz cookin’ it up with a team of name’ players. Dave Holland’s bouncy upright runs are electric smooth, DeJohnette’s drums are sharp (occasionally distractingly so) and Beirach’s long solo on "Untitled" is limited in range but varied enough to keep interest until Stan’s revved-up return. The title track brings it all down a bit, allowing the blessed Baltimore audience to digest the group’s expressive beauty before they click back into Chick for a "Fiesta" finale.
I love jazz because with it I found my true voice. I have always sung since I was a very small child in school and church. And there have been many genre that I have enjoyed including spiritual, folk, country, latin, soca and pop
I love jazz because with it I found my true voice. I have always sung since I was a very small child in school and church. And there have been many genre that I have enjoyed including spiritual, folk, country, latin, soca and pop. But nothing has touched my artistic sensiblities like JAZZ! Two years ago I moved to Sarasota, FL where I renewed my focus on my singing career and I was so impressed with the quality, quantity and generousity of talented jazz musicains in the Suncoast area. I soon partnered with piano legend Billy Marcus and his trio with Don Mopsick and Stephen Bucholtz. What a blast working with these guys and having them back me up on my first jaz album, Here's To You... which was just released on October 1st. I can't wait to see where the coming year brings me!
