ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“CAUGHT A TOUCH OF YOUR LOVE” BY JENNY GREEN

Croydon based Jenny Green is a British jazz singer whose debut album “Caught A Touch Of Your Love” is a musically tight, sophisticated and supremely confident sounding piece of work. It is hard to believe it is Jenny Green’s debut album. She has an assured lightish and clear vocal touch reminding one a little of Ella Fitzgerald at times and the album features many songs from the classic songbook canon from which she declares a lifetime of love and devotion to. However it also highlights a sprinkling of more recently penned items all of which have been particularly shrewdly selected. Also well chosen is her choice of musicians who comprise Sean Hargreaves on keys, Neville Malcolm bass, Winston Clifford on drums augmented by Bryan Corbett (Trumpet, Flugelhorn), Ed Jones (Tenor, Alto, and Baritone Saxes) Trevor Miers (Trombone) adding a brassy sharpness on several selections.

“Caught A Touch Of Your Love” opens in tough and declamatory fashion with “Hum Drum Blues” first heard by its writer Oscar Brown on his classic debut album “Sin And Soul” back in 1961. There is a great sense of fun here, a jokily delivered sense of frustration and exasperation at the ennui life can often throw up.

Other goodies include a cool, hip and riffy take on “Taking A Chance On Love” with excellent trumpet input from Bryan Corbett, “Let’s Get Lost” which is coquettish and sexy, a gorgeous, laidback “The More I See You” with an aching, yearning quality often lost in more uptempo readings while the quaint “Just You, Just Me” in duet with Richard Shelton, has a warm smile-inducing effect. Especially good is Sean Hargreaves’ lithe and lively piano solo.

Of the more contemporary songs, the feisty title track, “Caught A Touch Of Your Love” has a hardnosed, bluesy edge and swings like mad. This has previously been cut BB King and Grover Washington Jr but Jenny easily holds her own here. (It has an interesting songwriting pedigree inasmuch as it is co-written by Jack Keller, who wrote many teenage rock ‘n’ roll hits in the 50s and early 60s and county songwriter Craig Bickhardt). “Always Something There To Remind Me” proves it’s
Durability and flexibility in Jenny’s lively and finger-popping workout, taking it away from the usual angsty and melodramatic interpretations of the song. The other newer or non-standard song is the outstanding “I Told You So” written by Scottish sax player Duncan Lamont. This beautiful and lyrically sophisticated song deals with the desolation and unhappiness of a relationship breakdown but unusually seen from the point of view of a third party. Jenny sensitive performance nails the song utterly and brilliantly.

The album closes with Rogers and Hart’s acerbic and slightly sardonic number “This Funny World” to just a piano accompaniment. One of Rogers and Hart’s earliest songs, dating from 1927 it easily stands with the pair’s later, more celebrated output. In Jenny’s hands it becomes a sad and reflective ending to what is a truly excellent album.

Jenny Green performs regularly in venues across Surrey and South-East London and if you’re lucky enough to catch her gigs, it will prove a rewarding night out. For anybody else, this album is highly recommended.
