ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Ike Moriz’s unstoppable recording efforts culminate in this brand-new feast of classic Jazz/Swing standards: A selection of musical gems that were made immortal by singers like Ella Fitzgerald, Nat King Cole, Bobby Darin, Frank Sinatra & Tony Bennett. However, Ike has given these songs his own appealing fingerprint that makes them even more timeless & exquisite.

Ike’s 11th studio album is considerably more upbeat than the previous release just a few months ago, taking off with uptempo versions of the feel-good “How High The Moon”, the mysterious “Caravan” & the evergreen “Sunday”, followed by a slightly more chilled “I Wish You Love”. Elvis Presley’s famous “Can’t Help Falling In Love” has been given a beautiful piano & voice treatment that really gives both the pianist and Ike’s voice the space to allure & shine. If this 16 track CD was a vinyl record, this song would mark the end of side A: Time for a tea break...

We continue back with an all time ‘uber-hit’, namely Nat Cole’s “Love” (or L-O-V-E) followed by the bewitching latin Jobim jewel “Meditation” - both tracks gracefully accompanied by Navy Big Band leader and brass virtuoso Willie van Zyl on saxophone and clarinet.

Continuing in the typical ‘tongue in cheek’ - jovial swing era style Ike guides us through classic hits like “I’m Beginning To See The LIght”, “Just In Time” and the magnificent “I Left My Heart In San Francisco” (which he often changes to ‘in Hout Bay’ at live concerts). We finally arrive at the conclusion with the incredible treasure that is Paul Simon’s “Bridge Over Troubled Water” - again given an elegant 'voice & piano only' arrangement - keeping the best for last.

All in all a beguiling collection of timeless musical charm & beauty you cannot afford to miss!!!

Ike sings with such passion and his tone is rich and classy!
Ike Moriz has again blessed us with another one of his masterpieces. Taken aback by the
amazing sound of his album, SUNDAY, I couldn't help but imagine jazz greats like Tony
Bennett. As one of Ike's 12 CD releases, this project is my favorite so far.

"How High The Moon" conjures up thoughts of a romantic evening of fancy restaurant
dining with that special someone you love. Ike sings with such passion and his tone is
rich and classy, making it the perfect marriage with the song's music. The piano adds a
great deal of eloquence while the upright bass and drums are masterfully played to suit
the jazzy sound of the tune. No matter what your musical tastes are, if this song doesn't
get your toes tapping and your head nodding, then you don't have a pulse.

"Satin Doll" is another classic jazz song that speaks to the true essence of the genre.
Without sparing a note, the pianist and Ike take you on an amazing musical ferris wheel
ride that will leave you feeling like you're on top of the world.

In addition to How High The Moon and Satin Doll, this album offers up these other great
tunes: Caravan, What Is This Thing Called Love, There Will Never Be Another You, I'm
Beginning To See The Light and I Left My Heart In San Francisco (Tony Bennett's
signature song). Each song showcases Ike's brilliance and could very well be one of the
best classic jazz projects I've had the pleasure of reviewing.

Overall, Ike Moriz is a true musician. Only a handful of artists can switch genres as
effortlessly as Ike does.

Powerful male jazz voice with a British Accent !
Ike Moriz's latest outing is called Sunday and what a Sunday treat this is. Originating from South Africa, I was amazed at the deepness, depth, subtlety, and soothing nature of Ike's voice. His British accent adds flair and originality to all the classic tunes. The best song on this CD is Bridge Over Troubled Waters. Ike's talents include voice and instruments, as well as a heart-felt interpretation that brings fresh meaning to songs within the American songbook. Ike excels on Can't Help Falling In Love. Ike offers the American jazz scene a new window into timeless treasures. Hearing Ike sing is certainly a dominant sound that one cannot easily forget when first exposed to. This CD should be in everyone's arsenal. It is superb !

"I don't think there's another artist in the world that's so adaptable to differ
Ike Moriz - Sunday (Mosquito Records London)
It would be wonderfully neat and tidy to state that `Ike Moriz is South Africa's answer to...'. Unfortunately, that's too difficult a sentence to finish. I don't think there's another artist in the world that's so adaptable to different styles and sounds in the way Moriz is. His "Breathing Dreams" album (also released this year) was a pop/rock album that touched on everything from indie pop to Bowie inspired glam. It could've (perhaps should've) been a mess, but it wasn't, it was focused and inspired, and always entertaining. "Sunday" (just one of three albums released in 2011) is a completely different sort of record. Here he takes inspiration from the great easy-listening singers of the `50s, `60s and `70s, and for the most part, the Great American Songbook provides the material.

"Sunday" opens with a Broadway number, written back in 1940 by Nancy Hamilton and Morgan Lewis. "How High The Moon" has been famously covered by Les Paul and Mary Ford, Ella Fitzgerald and Sarah Vaughan, and there are countless instrumental versions on offer, but Moriz does the song credit, performing the words with a smile on his lips, and his band keep it upbeat, though instrumentally sparse. Piano is often the lead instrument, and Moriz plays it jazzy and light. It perfectly suits his voice. Other standout tracks on this 16-track collection include Johnny Mercer's "Satin Doll" and the absolutely charming version of Cole Porter's "What Is This Thing Called Love?". Fans of contemporary jazz singers, as well as the old guard, would do well to keep an eye on Moriz. I, for one, am already looking forward to his next record.
