Nels Andrews gained plaudits far and wide for his debut album 'Sunday Shoes,' as parched as the American Southwest landscapes he inhabited. Three years on and his second album finds him in New York, employing a fuller, more produced sound but maintaining a restless, questing soul. He describes the intervening years as replacing one itinerant lifestyle (labouring in the canneries of Alaska and planting trees in the forests of South Dakota) with another (travelling musician or troubadour). In the hubbub of the city he has sought solace in solitary spaces, abandoned piers and rooftops.
Denise Donatelli is a mesmerizing jazz vocalist, in command of her expressive instrument while offering her heart and soul with each note. Joined by a company of Los Angeles jazz session players, Donatelli takes the forefront with style and panache, providing illuminating vocals that gently walk the line between energetic jazz-singing and luminous balladry. She accomplishes a warm balance with her singing, offering something for everyone. There is a thread of kind-heartedness and sincerity running throughout the diverse and unique set list, which allows a true sense of artistry to emerge at any tempo or dynamic level. Featuring the arranging talents of Geoffrey Keezer once again and the artistry of Brazilian guiartist Leonardo Amuedo, Jay Leno drummer Marvin “Smitty” Smith and others, Denise Donatelli delivers one elegantly beautiful jazz album.
