ALBUM REVIEW

Lindsey Muir: You're Nearer: Love Songs of the 30's and 40's

Read "You're Nearer: Love Songs of the 30's and 40's" reviewed by Michael P. Gladstone

This 24-year-old singer has taken on the task of interpreting ballads of the 1930s and '40s with a superb cast that includes pianist Dave Berkman, guitarist Mark Whitfield, tenorist Don Braden, (also a co-producer and arranger),bassist John Benitez; trumpeter Terell Stafford and drummer Winard Harper. Muir has received some positive buzz from this album on Connecticut Jazz Radio, and she has appeared at the Annual Litchfield Jazz Festival. Her mother, Vita Muir, is the founder and director of this organization.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
