ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Joe Paice is a singer, pianist and songwriter, born in Bristol and living in London. His debut album, 'Wonderstruck', was recorded in 2005 and is being launched in Spring 2006.

Produced by Jim Barr (Portishead), 'Wonderstruck' features The Blessing frontline on horns - Jake McMurchie (saxophones) and Pete Judge (trumpet/flugelhorn/tuba); Niel Robinson (bass) and Eddie Johns (drums). Frank Evans (guitar) guests on 'Nuages'.

Roughly half of the songs on the album are originals ranging from the Jobim influenced 'On A Summer Night' to the paean to fry-ups 'Greasy Spoon', which was featured in a poetry anthology in 2005 alongside works by Pete Townshend, Willy Mason and Adrian Mitchell. Alongside the self-penned songs are a wide range of cover songs including Piazzolla's 'Libertango'; 'Where's The Love' from Michel Legrand's score for 'Les Parapluies du Cherbourg'; a Bing Crosby hit of 1939, 'A Man And His Dream'; and Marian McPartland's beautiful ballad 'In The Days Of Our Love' featuring a lyric by Peggy Lee.

Joe has performed at numerous prestigious UK venues, including The Ivy, The 100 Club, and The Old Vic bar, where he played at Kevin Spacey's first night party as Artistic Director of the theatre.

Musical delights guaranteed to please your flights of fancy
Joe Paice does fine justice to Bob Dorough's classic gem "A Small Day
Tomorrow". An unusual texture to Paice's voice makes this tune work
superbly. Jake McMurchie's sax solo has all the soul necessary to complement
Paice's hip vocal.

"Wonderstruck" The title tune has a bop feel with Paice's sparkling and
fluent vocal.

This CD demonstrates the varied styles of Joe Paice as he sings his way
into your heart with musical delights guaranteed to please your flights
of fancy.
