Album Notes
This CD was recorded in Catania, Sicily, after Joan toured with pianist and composer Giovanni Mazzarino in Switzerland and Italy.

The CD is dedicated to one of Joan's mentors, Joe Lee Wilson, who recorded "Feelin' Good" by Santiago Gonzalez III, in the seventies. The musicians joining Joan and Giovanni are first class. (http://www.nommejazz.ee/est/esinejad_wilson.htm)

Bassist Nello Toscano is the son of a classical guitarist and is, himself, a guitarist. He is seasoned and immersed in the jazz medium.

Drummer Mimmo Cafiero is accomplished as a musician, educator and promoter. His rhythmic sense is superb.

Oracio Maugeri is a stellar player. His interpretation of Joan's original compositions is uncanny, in that he only met her the day of the recording.

The CD was first released in 1995, on Tireno Records in Milan, then released in the U.S. on Joan's label, I AM Records, in 1998.

Joan Cartwright is an explosive jazz and blues singer, composer and lecturer. She's performed in the U.S. for 25 years and in Europe since 1990. She toured 8 European countries, Africa and Mexico. Joan sings her own songs and those of Ellington, Miles Davis, Thelonious Monk, Cole Porter, Gershwin, Jobim and the standard composers. She is an extraordinary performer who can enchant any audience anywhere! She is the recipient of a SEAS Grant for her presentation of WOMEN IN JAZZ at schools in Broward County, Florida. Her research paper, The Sign of The Blues, was published in the 1993 IAJE Research Papers Journal. She offers lectures around the country on:

Women in Jazz
The Sign of The Blues
Jazz: The Unmasked Rhetoric
The Cultural Politics of Commercial Jazz
The Business of Music: So, You Want To Be A Singer?

Her interviews for Entertainment News & Views, include Dr. Billy Taylor, Wynton Marsalis, Bobby McFerrin, Lonnie Liston Smith and Sun Ra. She interviewed Quincy Jones and Abby Lincoln for her Master's thesis, The Cultural Politics of Commercial Jazz.

Joan's original music is published by Fuzz Goodbuddy Publications (BMI). Visit www.fyicomminc.com/records.htm

Joan produced the First Annual Gaiafest, "A celebration of Mother Earth with Women in Jazz", in March 1998, featuring legendary vocalists Dakota Staton and Ruth "Silky" Waters, and the Gaia All-Stars with Kim Clark (b), Bertha Hope (p), Bernice Brooks (d) and Pamela Williams (sax). In September 1998 and 1999, it was produced in the Bronx, New York. Gaiafest also will be held in New York, in 2000.

Ultimately, Gaiafest will travel around the world. Visit http://www.fyicomminc.com/gaia.htm

Joan is the owner of MOTHERLAND BRIDGE GALLERY for private collectors, only, in Atlanta, GA. Visit www.motherlandbridgegallery.com/mb/welcome.htm for updates.

Great interpretations!
Joan Cartwright's, Feelin' Good CD, truly demonstrates what Jazz-Vocal interpretation is all about. Quite obviously, Joan, is in a class by herself as she makes each song her own here. There is no doubt about it...one of today's Jazz greats...Bravo!

Joan Is Out Of Sight!
I Love "Feeling Good" Joan has a sound that is like no one else, mature and sexy with lots of charm and sophistication. Joan is also one of the finest songwriters alive.
The personnel is among the best musicians in the business. The whole CD is like coming to a night club performance and feeling happy you came. That's why I love "Feeling Good" Just one listen and you will love "Feeling Good" too.

Christine Velez Stone

Absolutely spectacular I listen to it often while painting or back ground music
very inspirational,makes you want to get up and swing dance. I love the rthym the beat is jumping and Joan's sense of humor and witt comes dancing through the speakers to you and yes she also sings the blues in such a way that you actually lament for a moment or two, but then she comes through with insirational strength, and sensuality. Thank you Joan love it, love it, love it!!!

franklin gaskin

hey joan I was listeniing to the cd and I love it.
You did give me a cd and i let someone here it and NEVER got it back!
but hopefully i'll be able to get anothher when I get there and we can go over the material and maybe get some gigs there in the Atlanta area
I'll keep listening as the days go by between now and then and hope to have a good grasp on the tunes. ciao

K. A. Clarke

Feelin Good swings and is full of life thanks to the emotive vocal artistry of Ms Cartright and her wonderful
accompanists.I definitely recommend it as a fine example America's Only Classical Music: Jazz.
