Artist: Carolyn Graye/Jessica Williams Album: Songs CD Review:
The simple, unadorned title fits the contents. This is just an album of Carolyn Graye singing against Jessica Williamsí romantic, hardly flashy piano. A real piano. It is night and nightclub jazz for those of us who really Dig this kind of naked, sweet, cool, old-fashioned style.
It is a truly beautiful release, from a truly beautiful jazz label. OriginArts. Iíve sung the praises on these guys before myself. They are the best of the non-major labels that promote jazz in all its masks. No. Iíll retract that. They are the best, end of story.
With voice and piano, youíll be captured by the silk-like production of
Thatís All Blue Bossa Up Jumped Spring Alone Together If You Could See Me Now Do Nothing Til You Hear from Me Everything Happens to Me Get Outa Town Weíll Be Together Again Turnaround
I donít know what youíre reading this sentence for. You should be on your way to the store to buy it.
