ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Toronto, ON, Canada – On March 21, 2017, Jazz from Rant will release the latest recording by jazz composer, guitarist and arranger Reg Schwager entitled Songbook.

The album introduces some wonderful new songs written by Reg with lyrics by the vocalists on the album, Jeannette Lambert, John Alcorn and Luanda Jones.

As a child prodigy, Reg’s great musical passion was learning as many jazz songs as humanly possible, which eventually inspired his own songwriting. He has always had an affinity for vocal jazz helped by his long standing duo with his sister, vocalist Jeannette Lambert. One of their earliest songs, Bygones, opens the album. Other songs, such as Provence and Crow’s Cry, were written in the past year.

He continues to support and encourage vocal jazz expression in much of his work. This collection of some of his best songs is a testament to that. Jeannette Lambert is a respected singer, poet and multi-media artist. There is an appealing directness and deceptive simplicity to her work that belies an unusual depth of meaning and understanding – like a Miles Davis trumpet solo.

John Alcorn’s lyrics, like his singing, are a perfect blend of emotion and craft, as in the poignant ballad Kisses of Summer. His keen wit is also on display in the devilishly clever Whoop-De-Doo.

Valsa etérea and O que tinha que dar feature lyrics in Portuguese by Luanda Jones. Luanda grew up in a richly musical household in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. From diverse influences she has developed a style that radiates vitality, sophistication and charm.

The album also features inspired musical contributions from Allison Au, Amanda Tosoff, Brodie West, Don Thompson, Fabio Ragnelli, Kiki Misumi, Maninho Costa, Michel Lambert, Mike Murley, Perry White, Steve Wallace and William Sperandei.

The cover painting is by Agatha Schwager, Reg and Jeannette’s mother, from her last exhibition entitled “Shadows of my Hand”.
