ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Music's On Me' is the latest album from British jazz pianist and vocalist WENDY KIRKLAND. Wendy describes the album as "a selection of original and "lyricised" pieces"; that's to say her own songs (3) interspersed with 8 jazz classics from people like Michael Petrucciani, Wes Montgomery, Russell Malone and Don Grolnick to some of which she's added lyrics. It's a clever concept and delivered with humour, insight and an obvious knowledge and love of the genre. For instance on the cover of Kenny Rankin's 'Haven't We Met' (most famously recorded by Mel Torme), Ms Kirkland uses the lovely piano figure from 'Here's That Rainy Day'.

Elsewhere there are two lovely Latin items... the original 'O Gato Molhado' (a homage to a "wet cat") and a take on Duke Pearson's 'Sandalia Dela'. A cover of Peter Nero's 'Sunday In New York' (most famously recorded by Bobby Darin) is another winner.
