ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The ACQ (Amy Cervini Quartet) is an exciting addition to the New York City jazz scene, stretching the boundaries of traditional vocal jazz repertoire and creating new sounds.

Their debut album features songs by Leonard Cohen, Jonatha Brooke, Edgar Meyer, Fiona Apple, Leslie Feist, Weezer, a new young composer/arranger/producer Oded Lev-Ari and some standard jazz repertoire by Cole Porter and Billie Holiday.

Amy Cervini is a regular at New York clubs including Birdland, The 55 Bar, The Knitting Factory, The Jazz Standard, Cornelia Street Café and Joe’s Pub. She has also appeared at numerous clubs and concert halls around the world; from Toronto to Tel-Aviv. Ms. Cervini is currently a member of the New York-based vocal jazz group, Monday Off that released their long awaited, self-titled sophmore CD in December 2006. Amy has also been featured as a back-up vocalist with the New York band Pharaoh's Daughter.

Amy made her Carnegie Hall debut in 2002 singing with the New York Pops Orchestra as part of their 25th Anniversary Gala Celebration. She shared the stage with Bucky Pizzarelli, Christine Ebersole, Peter Appleyard and sang in the debut performance of a selection from a new musical written by Kathie Lee Gifford. Ms. Cervini also premiered the part of “Obum” in Patricia Burgess’ jazz opera, “Reflections of the Watermoon” at New York City’s Merkin Hall. Amy is also a member of Numinous+, a group conducted by Joseph Phillips and featuring his compositions. She will be part of a recording in Spring 2007 featuring Phillips’ 70-minute work, Vipassana.

Two Etobicoke Collegiate and Toronto All-Star Big Band veterans, New York-based vocalist Amy and her drumming brother Ernesto, a frequent Hogtown-Big Apple commuter, release this debut CD on Saturday at the late Rex show – and it's worth hearing from tracks 1 through 10. Joined by pianist Michael Cabe and bass Mark Lau, they dip into wide repertoire ranging from contemporary pop (Fiona Apple, Feist, etc.) to jazz chestnuts to cabaret to gloomy poet Leonard Cohen, whose "Famous Blue Raincoat" inspired the disc title and the foursome to make moving music. Jonatha Brooke's "Because I Told You So" is a great starter, too. Amy has risen fast through tough singing ranks down south, and her freshly appealing voice is a big reason, allied to sympathetic support. The tasteful sounds suggest both youth and wisdom, a fairly miraculous tandem...
