Carefree Together - MELLOW AVSTREITH with PAUL MUNNERY'S SWING STREET

Carefree Together -  MELLOW AVSTREITH with PAUL MUNNERY'S SWING STREET
£12.99
CD / Product Number: PKCD318

Mellow Avstreih is without doubt one of the best jazz singers in the country and I have thought for some time how good it would be to record her with a small band of the calibre of Paul Munnery's. Mellow has an amazing ability to take a good song and make it her own, with her own individual interpretation, whilst remaing true to the original. As Paul says in the sleevenotes, ' . . . her remarkable tone, her apparently limitless versatility and her unique, sometimes startling command of timing. Above all she has that indefinable knack of squeezing the last ounce of passion from a good tune and a poetic lyric'. I think by any standards this is a great CD. The band line-up is Paul Munnery trombone and slide guitar Hugh Roberts clarinet and tenor sax Rod Kelly or Phil Blandford piano Rachel Hayward guitar Tony Sharp double bass Al Sharpe drums. It was recorded in July 2007 with some tracks coming from a live session.
