As I introduce my third album, Interludes, I enter another chapter of my singing career with a new title: Producer. I did not take the task lightly for I wanted to create the best album yet by capturing the nuances of the sublimely complicated subject known as Love.
For Interludes I looked for songs that express the many facets of love’s entrances and exits, pieces that struck a chord with me. As the songs unfolded, they developed their own character and instrumentation.
I chose all the musicians on this album for their personal styles and approaches to jazz. Initially, I wanted to perform duets with different instrumentalists but, as the songs unfolded, they developed their own character and instrumentation based on ideas generated by the musicians who formed the album’s demo team.
