Album Notes
Berklee College of Music professor of piano and harmony, Ray Santisi created the arrangements presented with these jazz standards featuring Irving Berlin, Cole Porter, Duke Ellington and other composers of the Tin Pan Alley and Harlem renaissance era. Greg Loughman [bass] and Gary Johnson [drums] joined the quartet in 2006 and the first Sunday of each month, this trio teams up with Patricia Adams singing at Ryles Jazz Club where she has performed for almost a decade. Ryles' sound engineer, James "Kamal" Jones recorded this album live during the March and April 2008 brunches. Many of you were there.

For Ryles staff, owners and Frankie V, who gave me a chance,and for Fred Taylor who suggested Ryles in the first place. Thank you. Patricia Adams, bandleader & vocalist, 2008

“First Sundays comes from a regular first Sunday of the month gig at Ryles Jazz club in Boston where a quartet led by vocalist Patricia Adams holds forth. It’s an old school presentation, even to the point of announcing the songwriters before doing each song, but it works. Adams has a deep, mature voice with a hint of Carmen McRae to it and she is experienced enough to find some new life in the old chestnuts she sings. Her vibrating, veteran voice is an asset for conveying the requisite emotion of rueful ballads like “If You Could See Me Now” and “I’ve Got It Bad.” She has sensitive and classy backing also with Ray Santisi doing a lot of frisky arpeg¬gios behind the singing and also sneaking in a perky solo here and there.” Jerome Wilson, CADENCE Magazine, April/May/June 2009
