Breathtaking romantic vocal piano jazz Peter Eldridge Kenny Werner – SOMEWHERE: In looking through my archives, I’m finding that this is actually the first time I’ve reviewed Peter’s breathtaking vocal jazz… Kenny’s mellow piano has been reviewed in my magazines, but only with other performers. I can tell you right now that if you love your jazz to be romantically inclined and lovely, this is the ticket! Though I didn’t find LIVE videos from the new album, both Peter and Kenny have live videos on their respective YouTube channels, so be sure to SUBSCRIBE there.
The addition of magical strings on “Difficult” makes it a winner in all senses of the word; it’s definitely jazz that takes us back to an earlier day… you should listen to this (and all the other tunes) with headphones on, at least for your first sitting… I believe this song will achieve some MAJOR airplay on jazz stations all over the land!
Kenny’s piano intro to “Ballad for Trane” makes it one of my personal favorite tunes (yet) in 2019… the vocal really reminds me of some of my earliest exposure to jazz vocalists, like Andy Williams and Perry Como… smooth, but with real roots.
If “contemporary” is what you’re yearning for, you’re going to find my personal favorite of the eleven tunes offered up to be to your liking as well… “Less Than Lovers” rides the whispers of love ever so gently and tastefully… and, again, I just LOVE those strings, folks!
I give Peter and Kenny a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED rating, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) score of 4.98 for this fine vocal/jazz album. Learn more at Peter’s or Kenny’s websites. Rotcod Zzaj
