ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The United States of America dominated the 20th century and one of their most enduring legacies was music. In just a few short years they invented Jazz, Blues, Rock ‘n Roll, Gospel and Soul. This album is a celebration of that enormous energy and creativity.

In 2006 I had the opportunity to travel around the U.S. with friends on a musical road trip culminating in the New Orleans Jazz Festival. Inspired by Gospel, Blues and Broadway music in New York and the Jazz in New Orleans these are the songs I wrote on the road.

Right from the start I had Susan in mind for the vocals. While she is a renowned Australasian Jazz singer and tutor I always knew she had the soul to sing the blues. As a consummate artist and true professional she rose to the challenge and \"nailed\" every song - most of them in one take.

Carmel Courtney on sax and Mike Arthur on guitar are two other national treasures and two of my all time favorite musicians. It was an honor to work with them and the fabulous CPIT ‘Ooh Ya Ya’ Gospel Choir......Nigel Spiers

What the critics are saying:

\"Seductive Blues - This woman really knows what she\'s doing on the mic and these vocals remind me of Etta James. I like the steamy feel this band lays down. Instrumentally this is top notch and I\'d pay a good cover to check this band out.\"

\"Grrreat Vocals and Sax - that´s what I´d call a sexy sax! A wonderful song and nice lyrics - I loved it!\"

\"Damn - this band has it together. Professional from top to bottom and talk about a big, big sound - There must be at least a dozen different people on stage here if you count the \"gospel choir\" in the background.\"
