Album Notes
With his unique brand of swing and jazz songs, prolific composer Joel Evans delivers a marvelous offering: seventeen new and original tracks in classic and retro styles - Just What The Doctor Ordered!

Tim Hockenberry, semifinalist on NBC's "America's Got Talent" competition, sings the title track. The song was also covered as a duet by Roberta Donnay and Nicolas Bearde on Roberta's 2015 DownBeat Magazine TOP 50 album (4-5 star reviews). The song's co-writer is the marvelous writer/performer Barbara Martin.

Track #8, "Now That You're Gone", was licensed for acclaimed Writer/Director Joss Whedon's indy film, "In Your Eyes", starring Zoe Kazan. Lyric by hit songwriter Andre Pessis.

Track #9, "Probably the Sunny Day", is heard in episode #407 of Showtime's hit series, "Shameless". The song was co-written by Nashville songwriter extraordinaire, Lisa Aschmann.

Track #14, "Boogie with my Baby", is an homage to the Andrews Sisters. Its wonderful lyric is by LA's multi-talented Adryan Russ, writer of lyrics and music for film, television, musical theater and the pop world. It was featured on CBS' "Young & Restless".

Featuring wonderfully talented male and female guest vocal artists, Just What The Doctor Ordered provides an entertaining variety of styles. Songs like the up-tempo 50s-60s Vegas lounge track “Changing My Tune” and the bright, brisk, spirited jazz combo “Anytime That I’m With You” are standouts.

A good experience
I don't have this album, but I heard another version of the title track on a different disc (Jazz for Wine Lovers). I liked it so much that I contacted Mr. Evans and his co-writer, and they both were kind enough to reply. I learned the song myself (simplified a bit) and performed it a number of times. It's such a classic-sounding song that I took it for a standard.

It sounds like this arrangement is nice as well. If the rest of the album is on par with that tune, it's fair to say this CD is a good buy for your jazz collection.

Thank you again, Mr. Evans!
