Album Notes
Jody Shayne has crafted her own style of lyrics to music by three prominent jazz composers, Enrico Pieranunzi, Michel Petrucciani, and Pat Metheny. Drawing on their compositions for inspiration, she tells completely new stories and old stories with a new twist. There is a directness about her singing that is both conversational and provocative. Her voice is like crème brulee, with a crusty edge of burnt sugar on top.
Sometimes, you may find yourself asking, "Where's she going with this?" Then as the song progresses all the pieces fall into place and it makes perfect sense.
She has enlisted an impressive group of players for this project - two distinctly different and cohesive trios. One has David Caldwell-Mason on piano, Russ Brooks on bass and Hal Miller on drums. The other has Alberto Pibiri on piano, Brooks again on bass and Dave Calarco on drums.

Ear Candy
I’ve always admired Jody Shayne’s as a jazz musician - I had no idea she was such a gifted lyricist. “Firefly Rides” blends Jody’s melodic vocals with wonderful background arrangements to create an exceptional collaboration. My favorite cut, “I Want To Be There” pairs witty lyrics and musings to make light of something most people have a tough time finding humor in – but it works! This is certainly a CD I’ll be playing again and again.
