Album Notes
"... has an oaken style that recalls Rosemary Clooney..." --Nick DeRiso, AllAboutJazz.com & ReviewYou.com

Sung by the wonderful Laura Kenyon, backed by a jazz trio of excellent N.Y.C studio musicians, for composer Drew Paralic's third CD (entitled ROLL WITH IT, BABY), "How Bill's Heart Sings" really reflects an era. An era of The Great American Songbook--pre-rock & roll, that is. Think 1950s cool jazz interpretations of tunes by Porter, Gershwin, Arlen, et al. A piece of music inspired by the great jazz pianist, Bill Evans. Music by Drew Paralic; lyrics by Thomas A. Raniszewski.
The Laura Kenyon Quartet is:
Elias Bailey, upright bass
Laura Kenyon, vocal
Mike McGinnis, tenor sax
David Pearl, piano

"With a wide range of influences, especially in the subgenres of jazz that he draws from, there are moments when specific players will leap to the forefront, giving the audience a glimpse of where Paralic has come from in his musical upbringing. The most obvious is his homage to the late, great jazz pianist and composer Bill Evans, “How Bill’s Heart Sings.” Featuring piano voicings and harmony a la Evans, sultry vocals, a post-Lafaro style Evan trio bass line and melodic tenor sax lines, the song evokes rhythmic interaction, a mellow groove and a deep focus on melody, all of the things that made Evans a legend on the piano and one of the most revered composers of his era.
