Appearances by

Dave Green

“Fly” is the latest release from Scottish jazz singer Louise Dodds. This new album contains a mixture of original compositions alongside fresh arrangements of classic jazz standards, and highlights her skills as a vocalist, composer, lyricist, improviser and arranger.

The album also includes Louise’s version of How My Heart Sings by Earl Zindars (composer to Bill Evans). Louise was in contact with his wife during the recording process, and was given her full seal of approval on the arrangement: “LOVE IT!!! So Joyous. The first and last chorus with the original lyrics, and your improvisation mid way is really good. Much success to you Louise. Anne Zindars”

Louise enlisted the musical talents of some of the country’s most talented and renowned jazz musicians for her first recording project in 7 years – John Pearce on piano, Dave Green on double bass, Steve Brown on drums and Martin Shaw on trumpet and flugelhorn. Together they have numerous jazz awards under their belts, and have performed with the likes of Anita O’day, Peggy Lee, Mark Murphy, Cleo Laine, Art Farmer, Humphrey Lyttleton, Coleman Hawkins and Benny Golson – just a small glimpse at their incredible careers. The album also features a new arrangement of All or Nothing at All by Scottish pianist David Patrick.

 

Reviews

 

01/07/2013 Keith Ames

Jazz vocalist Louise came to prominence in 2005 after a slew of UK gigs, a debut release and an appearance on BBC Radio Leeds spread her reputation resulting in a residency at the seven-star Burj Al Arab in Dubai. Her return to London has seen headline bookings at clubs across town and her well-honed skill as a vocalist permits her to call on major names to accompany her, including on this album: John Pearce (piano), Dave Green (double bass), Steve Brown (drums) and Martin Shaw (trumpet and flugelhorn). Promising originals sit perfectly alongside consummate interpretations of classics, namely Here's That Rainy Day, Midnight Sun and I Fall in Love Too Easily
