Appearances by

Chris Peirce

The second album from Kirsten Winter and Chris Peirce takes the duo’s sound into a new territory. They move out of the dinner-jazzy terrain into something broader - more individual and careworn-sounding. “I feel I have been much more true to myself in my voice and my choice of material on this album” says Kirsten, “it feels more raw and personal.” This is helped by the addition of Dan Earley’s percussion or drums on some tracks.

The album’s concept – invent some memories – explores how we look back on significant moments of love and friendship. Songs have been chosen with this in mind; from blues and jazz standards to inventive interpretations of less celebrated songwriter greats from the likes of James Taylor and John Martyn. There are also two original songs including the title track.

Invent some memories is the sound of two musicians increasingly comfortable in their own musical skins. The album greets you like a long-absent old friend, returning that bit older and wiser. Get ready to renew old acquaintances.

 

Reviews

 

01/09/2006 Musician, 2005

A very classy production showcasing the excellent vocals of Kirsten plus the cool and timeless guitar of Chris Peirce. Eleven songs from a world class variety of sources - James Taylor, John Martyn, Sting - blend together to make a very enjoyable recording that combines the familiar with the less well-known to great effect. Having been a duo since the Cheltenham Jazz Festival in 2000 the pair represent all that's good about small-scale, song-based jazz. Stand out track: an English take on Horace Silver's 'Senor Blues'.
