The album will be entitled Feeling The Love - Songs Of My Mother, Songs Of My Father and is a tribute to my mother and father. Gloria Elaine Gardner and Owen Gardner. It is a selection of songs that I can still hear my father singing and forms the backdrop to the childhood of Paula, Aniefe and I. My younger brother and sister.
The musicians I chose to record the album with me bring their passionate jazz instruments and create that sweet, jazz, swing groove to the tunes. There is a beautiful surprise in the heart of the album and there is a prayer-like theme that threads its way through the whole recording of this vocal jazz album.
I hope you love it. You may hear it digitally or via CD or via vinyl! Well that's the plan right now!
A warm thank you to Hyuna Park on piano, Martin Pizzarelli on bass, George Gray on drums, Linus Wyrsch on clarinet and tenor saxophone. Thank you Chris Sulit our sound engineer who is mixing as we speak!
