Calabria Foti: In the Still of the Night is - Jazz Weekly ****RINGER OF THE WEEK****

Bookmark and Share

It's been about 10 years since vocalist Calabria Foti has released an album, the seductively Julie London-inspired A Lovely Way to Spend an Evening. After listening to this one, all I've got to say is "WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN?!?" Instead of surrounding herself with strings, Foti changes atmospheres with small and intimate combos with a core simpatico team of Gene Bertoncini/g, Michael Patterson/p, Jared Schonig/dr and Ike Sturm/b and then mixes and matches chamber mates with guests Eddie Daniels/cl, Richard Locker/cel, and  hubby Bob McChesney/tb. The result is an intimate collection of Cole Porter tunes that dig deep into the night shadows with a full moon.
