ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"If you're looking for a singer with an extraordinary voice, full of strength, range and emotions, look no further than Eve Haslam. On her new cd., "Beautiful Love," you'll hear shades of Wanda De Sah, (Sergio Mendes & Brazil 66) when Eve sings "How Does the Wine Taste," and "Bossa Nova Sundays." I particularly love Eve's sound when she's soft and playful. "
- Roseanna Vitro, Grammy Nominated Vocalist

"Eve elevates the words and melody of a song to the sublime, and that is every songwriter's dream. I couldn't be happier with her accomplished and sensitive rendering of Bossa Nova Sundays!" - Matthew Breindel, Composer
.........................................................................................

"A very expressive and lightly swinging singer, Eve Haslam made a strong impression last year with her debut recording 'A Thousand Years Ago'. While that set featured her joined by a quintet, on 'Beautiful Love' she is heard in a more intimate setting that perfectly fits her warm and inviting voice.

Accompanying her on the 11 love songs of 'Beautiful Love' are pianist Bill Covington (from Asheville, North Carolina) and bassist Shannon Hoover (from nearby Greenville, South Carolina), both of whom play with subtlety, sympathy and impeccable taste. They contribute concise solos that add to the appeal of the music.

Eve Haslam and her musicians are very spontaneous throughout these performances, but because they listen closely to each other and think in similar ways, the music flows logically from one selection to another with no missteps or hesitant moments. Ms. Haslam starts out the set with a version of "Beautiful Love" that builds up gradually in passion while displaying her beautiful voice. She introduces the memorable melody of Matthew Breindel's "Bossa Nova Sundays" (which receives its debut recording), scats very well on Antonio Carlos Jobim's "If You Never Come To Me" and, on a surprising version of "I'll Be Seeing You," is quite effective during her single wordless chorus.

Throughout 'Beautiful Love', Eve Haslam alternates interpretations of the lyrics with scatted and wordless sections. In all cases, she gets her message across. Other highpoints include the rewarding obscurity "How Does The Wine Taste," a swinging "I Concentrate On You," and a heartfelt rendition of "Solitude."

'Beautiful Love' is highly recommended to fans of tasteful and quietly inventive jazz singers."
- Scott Yanow, Jazz Journalist and Music Critic

"From small-town New York to Las Vegas, by way of North Carolina and Vermont; to jazz by way of classical, to recording artist and Vegas act by way of calling a Jeep home.

It seems fair to say that Eve Haslam has lived quite a life, which she brings to her work as a vocalist; a depth of emotion that those without that resume couldn’t muster. Combine that with pinpoint control, and…well, it’s quite a package.

Backed by only piano (Bill Covington) and bass (Shannon Hoover), Ms. Haslam is framed nicely in this set of eleven love songs.

Favorites include Ellington’s “Solitude,” along with the Mercer/Mancini classic “Moon River,” and the original “Bossa Nova Sundays,” written by North Carolina artist Matthew Briendel.

“It’s time to follow my career to the next natural platform and after two years of researching, Las Vegas has been the obvious choice,” Ms. Haslam writes. We should all have such boldness to grab life by the horns. Talent aplenty, but it’s the story behind it all that gives that velvety voice a voice.

I have no doubt that what happens to her will stay (and thrive) in Vegas. This album is very highly recommended.

The three tracks mentioned above, and in bold have been added to the playlist at 62nd Street Radio."
