Album Notes
Carol Mennie makes her maiden voyage as a leader on I'M NOT A SOMETIME THING, a marvelous mixture of jazz and popular standards and originals with words and music by her producer and long time partner, guitarist/arranger/composer Dom Minasi. Mennie, who made her recording debut last year with a moving rendition of Thelonious Monk's "Round Midnight" on Minasi's critically acclaimed Time Will Tell cd, here has her mature vocal stylings surrounded by the guitarist's inventive arrangements which showcase her versatile voice in a variety of settings, accompanied by a superb band featuring Minasi, cellist Tomas Ulrich, pianist Michael Jefry Stevens, bassist Ken Filiano and drummer Jay Rosen, with special guests Patience Higgins on saxophones, Valery Ponomarev on trumpet and flugel horn and Tom McGrath on percussion.
