Indian Summer

by Danny Barrett

Indian Summer,defined as the arrival of warm weather after the first chilly frost, is a most appropriate metaphor fo the music of Danny Barrett. On a jazz scene that has been cold to romantic male vocalist for far too long, Barrett signals a most welcome

Album Notes
Jimmy Scott
Hi Danny, Thanks for thinking of me in regard to your album. I really enjoyed your work, my wife Jeanie and I listen to it often, it sets quite a romantic mood. I love the songs you've chosen, ones I may have chosen myself to do. I'd like to compliment you on paying attention to many of the great singers of yesteryear, while listening to your CD, Johnny Hartman, Freddy Cole, Arthur Prysock, and especially Billy Eckstine come to mind, and your ability to chose the material you chose to sing and your personal expression of each song.I'm in hope you will be successful with this new album and looking forward to hearing more from you in the future. You have a natural expression for the story the lyrics are telling. Don't give up your dream, for YOU'VE GOT WHAT IT TAKES. Best of luck!
Sincerely, JIMMY SCOTT

If you are at all musically inclined, you will be able to distinguish the voice of Danny Barrett, from a slew of singers out there. He is definitely an individual with a sound all his own. I found his album "Indian Summer", to be peaceful and honest, which is rare in the singing world today. You can hear he has been influenced by the greats, while adding his own feeling of the lyric within the melodic line. His arrangements and musical personnel are great. Without a doubt, this album will bring Danny, well deserved recognition, long overdue.

Sit back and give your ears to Danny Barrett's, Indian Summer, and by the disc's conclusion the first thought likely to enter your mind will be, WHY, can't all albums be made with this much care and artistry? Barrett's well-developed concept,musical integrity and sheer enthusiasm pay off in a big way over the CD's nine evocative tracks. While Barrett possesses a warm, expressive baritone sure to bring to mind Johnny Hartman, Joe Williams and Billy Eckstine, that's just part of the equation. His generosity toward the the creative skills of his stellar supporting musicians {including pianist Bill O'Connell, drummer Billy Drumond, flautist Dave Valentin, saxophonist Jerry Weldon and bassist Kenny Davis} and his devotion to lyrics that come straight from the American songbook are what make INDIAN SUMMER a complete and original aural experience. From the introspective ballad "QUIETLY THERE," to the spirited, hard swinging "HOW AM I TO KNOW," to" Baseball Interlude {I ONCE KNEW A MAN} a revealing look into Barrett's heart and soul via his other passion. INDIAN SUMMER is a thoroughly engaging listen.
