ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
From Doug Ramsey:

"Nancy Harrow's recordings have brought her together with some of the finest accompanists and soloists in modern music. She has consistently chosen partners whose experience, tastes, high standards and instincts about repertoire complement her own. The musicians featured with Ms. Harrow in this collection include some of the most admired jazz players, which is to say that they are among the best musicians in the world. Having found the five pieces that came from a demonstration project with guitarist Kenny Burrell, she decided to combine them in an album highlighting other musicians whose partnerships have been central to the success of several of her albums."


From Michael Steinman:

"I had originally thought to write a few lines about the performances that touched me at my very center. But they all do. What I hear and feel in this recording is a deep, complete, and varied personality shining her light at me, one track after the other. I hear energy, warmth, passions. Distinct and the same all at once. Her voice makes lovely shapes, now tough, now tender, now impish. It would be impudent of me to squeeze her art into text any more than I have already. Listeners will write their own
admiring, perhaps astonished, essays as they move from song to song."

Review on JAZZ LIVES, 6/20/2018:

"Even the most dedicated collector of Nancy's recorded music will be wide-eyed at six previously unheard (and unknown performances). Five -- IN A MELLOTONE, BUT BEAUTIFUL, YOU'RE MY THRILL, I GOT IT BAD, and IT'S A WONDERFUL WORLD -- are demonstration performances ("demos") recorded in 1964, pairing Nancy with Kenny Burrell, Major Holley, and Denzil Best. These brief recordings are sweet intense surprises."

-----------------------------------------------

"Nancy has remarkable emotional energy and a focused directness, so that her singing -- even though I know it's not the case -- seems a completely personal statement aimed at the single listener, like a conversation one has when there are only two or three people in the room. And the emotions! Tenderness, joviality, teasing, astonishment, protective love, joyous exuberance...even irritation as well as rue and hopefulness. Nancy doesn't shout or carry on, but her range is broad, every expression genuine. Her quiet honesty is so rare and so embracing."

Review from Joe Lang
Jersey Jazz/November 2018

"Most of the 23 selections are standards, but there are also some nifty Harrow originals,and a few tunes from the world of rock. Throughout Harrow consistently demonstrates that she is a vocalist with a unique sense of phrasing, and a sublime feeling for lyrics. She has been fortunate to work with so many outstanding musicians, and they with her."
