ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
joani taylor is canada's first lady of the jazz ballad. she has legendary status in canada's music circles. joani has practically lived in television and recording studios. she has sung solo and back up on literally thousands of film scores, commercials, and recordings with artists ranging from bryan adams, jon bon jovi, bruce fairburn, david foster, to tom jones and james galway, and producing herself as well as other artists.

joani has flown all over the world for special solo performances appearing in taiwan, san francisco, across canada, the 02/03/o4 vancouver international jazz festival and at the adelaide jazz festival in austraila. joani was nominated for the national jazz awards and the 03 juno awards for her fourth cd "the wall street sessions." the recognition has been earned and well deserved. she is a prolific lyricist and an excellent vocal arranger. sending her on teaching tours three to four times a year, joani's master classes for singers and musicians accompaning singers are compelling, inovative, and very well attended. her students love her approach and she covers areas of performance not delt with by other clinicians.constantly working on stage ms. taylor has opened for and performed with a real range of artists from stevie wonder and little richard, to lenny breau, p.j. perry, cannonball addrley, miles davis. don thompson, fraser macpherson, tommy banks, moe koffman campbell ryga, brad turner, ross taggart, john capon and many other artists. recently, joani recorded the opening song for
a feature film.

with influences and encouragement from powerful artists such as ella fitzgerald, frank sinatra, bill evans. thelonious monk and cannonball adderly, joani has become a master of her own style. it has been roumored that joani's music is included in clint eastwood's personal collection. as a matter of fact you can clearly hear the impact and influence she's had on some of canada's best known singers. you can't miss the power of her spirit when deep into a song. joani taylor brings to her audience a truly personal and in the moment experience. this chick singer stirs up a compelling feast of vocal delights that lure and seduce the audience into a jazz buff born again conversion. joani taylor has arrived.

NOTES!

Ross and Joani are great friend and there's a lot of trust between them.
You can really feel it in these performances.
By the way,
Did you know that all of Joani's recordings with the exception of the Absolutely Joani Taylor Album are recorded in one or two complete takes.
This is the was Jazz should be recorded because you have to feel the emotion and tensions and the excitement between all the players. There are also no band rehearsals. The musicians are of the highest level and there is so much trust and love and careful Listening in the studio that it just becomes
so soulful and magical.
