Album Notes
Barbara Paris, who has a lovely sweet voice and a gentle straightfoward style, is based in Boulder, CO. On this CD her singing is featured in three different settings. Paris performs four ballads (including Harold Vick's "Where Butterflies Play" and "Do You Know What It Means to Miss New Orleans") in duets with pianist Joe Bonner, interprets two Jobim pieces plus "How Deep Is the Ocean" while accompanied by guitarist Mitchell Long and concludes the set with four songs in which she is joined by the talented pianist Ellyn Rucker, the Stan Getz-inspired Richie Chiaraluce on tenor and bassist Dean Ross. The one fault to this program is that the tempos tend to be similar; only the closing pieces with the quartet ("Star Eyes" and "April in Paris") cook a bit. However the sincerity and appealing simplicity of Barbara Paris's style easily compensate.- Scott Yanow

Denver-based chanteuse Barbara Paris is a wonderfully expressive vocalist. Here, in a variety of sessions with pianists Joe Bonner and Ellyn Rucker, guitarist Mitchell Long and tenor saxman Rich Chiaraluce, Paris waxes eloquent with standard fare such as “How Deep is the Ocean,” “Gentle Rain,” “Star Eyes” and “April in Paris.” The overall atmosphere is one of warmth and intimacy. Especially notable are two originals, a lilting 5/4 line by Bonner called “You Kiss,” and Harold Vick’s evocative “Where Butterflies Play.”- Chuck Berg JazzTimes
