ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"LIVE: IN SAN GIORGIO" Release date: 2000 on OMS Records
A soulful collection of jazz standards and originals performed live in the foothills of the Italian Alps. Accompanied by the Martinale Trio, Amanda captures the essence of this romantic region.
PERSONNEL:
VOCALS: Amanda Carr
PIANOFORTE: Luigi Martinale
CONTRABASSO: Nicola Muresu
BATTERIA: Paolo Franciscone

In 1998, Amanda headlined at the EuroJazz festival in Ivrea, Italy where she shared the stage with International jazz artists James Moody and George Mraz. The National media attention she received prompted her to return in March of 99, recording and releasing, Live in San Giorgio that same year. Her television appearances include numerous Boston area features and a performance covered by National Italian television, RAI TRE.

ABOUT THE CD: "So where is San Giorgio, Italy? S.G. is a quaint 11th century village just a few miles south of the Italian Alps where the 2,300 local residents peacefully make their living or commute to the larger surrounding cities of Turin, Ivrea or Milan. In 1998, I was performing in Ivrea for the Eurojazz Festival which included appearances in peripheral cities and towns. A good friend of mine, who lives in San Giorgio, proudly showed me around this village and I stayed a few nights with his family... I fell in love with the place: the ancient winding streets, the central square framed by its historic church and the people who were so accommodating and interested in me and my music. After viewing the Teatro Comunale (Central Theater), we decided it would certainly be worth doing a concert there. I contacted Luigi Martinale in Turin and the rest of the trio who agreed to perform in March of 99 when I returned to Italy. The theater acoustics rendered a good opportunity for a live recording and thus, the birth of the CD. The material I chose is a combination of original compositions and American standards that I thought would gracefully cross the language barrier. Limited time with the players and a feeble grasp of Italian was a challenge that created a naturally dynamic environment and , ultimately, an exciting recording. The generous instrumental and solo sections, to me, make for good listening. Live in San Giorgio is the result of four of us whimsically getting together and, transcending mere words, coming up with something delightfully memorable."

Our entire family enjoys the music of Amanda Carr. Both Carr Tunes and Live in San Giorgio are among our favorites in our extensive jazz collection. It's refreshing to know that such a beautiful talent comes from our home state of MA. We look forward to her next recording. Thank you. John and Paula McNeil.

Very smooth music
Amanda has a great voice, and the music is strong.
She should enclose a poster, too. I would purchase another of her cd's. A very talented singer.
