ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
L.A.-based jazz vocalist Lyn Stanley releases The Moonlight Sessions, Volume Two Lyn Stanley follows up her critically acclaimed, award-winning album The Moonlight Sessions, Volume One with Volume Two, stamping 14 beloved songs with her sultry and sophisticated style Hot on the heels of her late-spring release of the well-reviewed The Moonlight Sessions, Volume One, Southern California songstress Lyn Stanley issues her fifth recording, The Moonlight Sessions, Volume Two. The award-winning, internationally acclaimed jazz vocalist once again demonstrates her gift for mining classic material and making it her own. And her voice...it is captivating and uniquely her own. Like sultry singer, Julie London, Stanley sings to you as if you are in a most intimate of settings and no one else is around.

Stanley takes listeners on a delightful sonic journey, from her unique takes on familiar tunes including “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” and “The Very Thought of You” to her sensitive approach to too-seldom heard gems like “That Old Feeling” and “Smile.” Stanley ventures beyond the Great American Songbook to turn her tasteful eye—and voice!—to popular songs from the mid-’70s such as “At Seventeen” and “The Summer Knows” (from the film The Summer of ’42).
Highlights from The Moonlight Sessions, Volume Two include:
“How Deep is the Ocean”: Stanley shows off her range on this tune, which opens with a tender vocal-piano duet before giving way to a cool, “All Blues”-flavored swinger with some very tasty trombone from Bob McChesney.
“I’ll Be Seeing You”: Rich strings and understated guitar combine, with Stanley’s voice floating lusciously on top.
“Since I Fell for You”: From the rarely heard verse to the final note, Stanley delivers the lyric with a persuasive ache. Rickey Woodard’s bluesy saxophone offers a brilliant contrast with her velvety voice.
“Makin’ Whoopee”: Stanley lives up to her sultry reputation, bringing a leisurely tension to this long-time fave.
“At Seventeen”: Check out the bittersweet world-weariness and sophistication of Stanley’s take on Janis Ian’s #1 hit single from 1975.
Joining Stanley on The Moonlight Sessions, Volume Two is a top-flight band of in-demand players, including pianists Mike Garson, Christian Jacob and Tamir Hendelman; bassist Chuck Berghofer; drummers Ray Brinker, Bernie Dresel and Joe LaBarbara; percussionist Luis Conte; guitarist John Chiodini; trumpeter Chuck Findley; saxophonist Rickey Woodard; trombonist Bob McChesney; harmonica wizard Hendrik Meurkens; and harpists Corky Hale and Carol Robins; strings: Budapest SSO.
Stellar recording quality makes The Moonlight Sessions, Volume Two an audiophile’s delight, and the creative arrangements will appeal to casual listeners and engage hard-core jazz aficionados.

With two entertaining top-quality releases under her belt in 2017 alone, Lyn Stanley’s long-time fans and recent followers will look forward to discovering what fascinating new projects the singer has next on her agenda.
