ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
An exciting follow-up to her debut release 'Jazz EP' (2011), Anita Eccleston’s new jazz album 'More Trumpet' is an intimate collection of traditional standards showcasing her distinctive vocal stylings alongside a whole lot more trumpet! With her savvy collaborators, guitarist and occasional vocalist Andrew Smith, guest cellist Doug Gorkoff, and bassist Graham Clark, Anita’s arrangements reveal a mature subtlety of craft. Reminiscent at times of Diana Krall’s drumless Love Scenes album, More Trumpet is steeped in romance with upbeat songs like “Fly Me to The Moon”, “Time After Time”, and “All of Me” not to mention the nostalgic ballads “These Foolish Things” and “What a Wonderful World.” Her sophisticated vocal palette is exemplified in the eerily haunting “Angel Eyes,” while her playful lyricism on trumpet throughout the album acts as an extension of that voice. Guitarist Andrew Smith is the featured vocalist in an elegant rendition of “I’m Just a Lucky So and So.” Anita has said “Although I am often artistically drawn to many genres of music, my deepest love is for jazz and I feel the most at home within the sphere of the jazz world...I wanted to create an album that would allow me to sing and play from my heart.”

Artist Bio
Vancouver-based bandleader Anita Eccleston's acrobatic voice and lyrical trumpet style honour the traditions of jazz, often melding familiar and new in both her large and small ensembles. Featuring core band members, Andrew Smith (guitar), Doug Gorkoff (cello), and Graham Clark (bass), her ongoing project showcases original songs and jazz favourites highlighted by instrumental improvisation, sweet sultry vocals, and sweeping cello counterpoint. Her major influences include Ella Fitzgerald, Amy Winehouse, Diana Krall, Miles Davis, and Chet Baker. Anita's energetic performances incorporate many styles from jazz to soul, funk, reggae, pop, and the blues.

Her latest album, More Trumpet (release Dec 18, 2016) is a collection of traditional jazz standards, showcasing her distinctive vocal stylings alongside her playful trumpeting. She pays tribute to the timeless songs to which she connected with as a budding musician. Anita has said “Although I am often artistically drawn to many genres of music, my deepest love is for jazz and I feel the most at home within the sphere of the jazz world...I wanted to create an album that would allow me to sing and play from my heart.”

In 2011, Eccleston released her debut Jazz EP, a collection of jazz recordings from 2003 to 2010. Anita was featured in 2012 in a performance for CBC Radio One’s program “Hot Air.” She released her Trio EP in 2013, and in 2014 completed her long-awaited original LP, So It Goes. The full length original album explores her eclectic tastes in music with jazz running through every vein.

Anita toured Eastern Canada and BC in 2014. In 2015, her Trio were featured guests with the Plastic Acid Orchestra for a performance at the Vancouver International Jazz Festival. This past summer for the festival she brought a 9-piece lineup to perform on Granville Island.
