ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“Heart Wide Open” goes straight to the heart of Deb and Keith's musical conversation - intimate interpretations of Deb’s original songs and well loved standards, with the occasional twist. A musical journey down the path of love with all its detours, “Heart Wide Open” pairs eloquent lyrics with the rich textures of guitar.

Deb Rasmussen (vocals) has studied with Jay Clayton, Sheila Jordon, Nancy King, Roberta Gambarini, Cheryl Fisher, Dee Daniels, Madeline Eastman and Viviane Cardinal and performs in Calgary, Canada and Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia. Keith Smith (guitar) has been playing over the last 45 years and has become a staple of the Calgary jazz scene since his arrival in 1997. Over the past several years he has appeared regularly with the PrimeTime Big Band and their many guests including Hugh Fraser, Tommy Banks, Guido Basso and Oliver Jones. He is a fixture in the Amos Garrett Jazz Trio, The Lorna MacLachlin Quintet and also performs in the Keith Smith Trio, a highly interactive Bill Frisell-inspired group heavily based in improvisation on Keith's original material. Keith released his CD, “Afterthought” in 2009.

Deb and Keith have been performing together since 2003. With the Northern Lights Quartet, they performed at the Giant Steppes Festival (Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia) in 2006 and 2008 and at the Time Arts Jazz Series at Peking University in 2008. In 2008, Northern Lights Quartet collaborated at the Giant Steppes Festival with the traditional Mongolian group, Altai Khangai. They toured Canada in 2009 and recorded the CD “Northern Lights Altai Khangai”.

Smooth
I just finished listening to the entire CD. It's smooth jazz. Very relaxing.

Deb Rasmussen's voice is smooth, steady, light.

Keith's jazz guitar is played effortlessly, a very talented musician.

A quiet evening, a dinner party, a relaxed afternoon, a long drive are go perfectly with "Heart Wide Open".
