Lyn Stanley - The Moonlight Sessions. A clever meeting of civilizations / Jazz Weekly

Bookmark and Share

Vocalist Lyn Stanley comes up with clever themes for her albums, ranging from standards to 50s gems. This time around, she gets the idea of mixing standards with classical themes, such as "Moonlight Sonata," "Clare De Lune" and other pieces by the likes of Mozart, Ravel and Chopin. What could have turned into a chintzy gimmick works out as a clever meeting of civilizations, bringing together some of LA's finest in Mike Garson-Tamir Hendelman/p, Chuck Berghofer/dr, Jo La Barbera-Ray Brinker/dr, John Chiodini/g, Luis Conte/perc, Hendrik Meurkens/harm and others for a sublimely swinging session.
