ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
On Summertime Lullaby, the latest release from versatile pianist/vocalist/composer Peggy Duquesnel, the Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter takes her listeners on a musical journey through the world of romance. Subtitled Jazz Standards and Love Songs, the recording combines Ms. Duquesnel’s own wonderful compositions, including the lovely title track, with popular classics from the Great American Songbook. Inspired by the love in her own life, the disc is dedicated by the singer to her husband and features a selection of some of the couple’s favorite songs, as well as original works inspired by their shared times. Joined by a first-class ensemble with some of the west coast’s finest jazz players, Duquesnel shows herself to be not just a capable pianist and vocalist, but also a talented arranger, as she puts her own stamp on some of the cherished chestnuts she interprets here, including “The Days of Wine and Roses,” “My Romance,” “Fly Me To The Moon” and “Stay As Sweet As You Are.” Her piano shines especially brightly on the instrumental selections “On Green Dolphin
Street,” “Mack The Knife,” “Satin Doll” and “Take The A Train,” with a ringing tone and deliberate two- handed style that nods to the early stride masters. On her original compositions “Summertime Lullaby,” “In The Quiet Hours” and “Promised Land,” Duquesnel translates the joy and hope of true love into words and music that are infectious in their optimism, while she changes moods with the energetic “Drivin’ Blues.” With a voice that is tender yet strong, that can emote from sweet to sultry with impeccable diction and intonation, Peggy Duquesnel is an artist whose music is poised to touch listeners where they feel it the most—in their hearts and souls.

An Impressive New Approach from Peggy Duquesnel
The gifted Peggy Duquesnel jumps into another category of music with SUMMERTIME LULLABY and succeeds quite nicely, thank you! Most of those who know the work of this fine singer and pianist are familiar with her religious music, but here she combines her very excellent gifts as a pianist and as a vocal stylist to present her own arrangements of jazz standards and love songs. And she does definitely have a knack for this genre. Her voice is clear and pure and she is unafraid to divide her arrangements between extended piano solos and the lyrics of the songs she has arranged: 'Fly me to the moon' is an excellent example of tis double talent. The album includes such songs as 'Satin Doll', 'My Romance', 'In the Quiet Hours', 'Mack the Knife' - a total of 12 'experiences'. The works are embellished by the fine work of guitars Grant Geissman and Mike Higgins, basses Jim DeJulio and Ernie Nunez, and drums Kendall Kay and Dave Owens. This little CD is a winner that should open even more doors to the growing audience for Peggy Duquesnel!
