Lyn Stanley

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.

Once again Lyn Stanley makes it evident that when it comes to sultry jazz singing she is a force to be reckoned with. Stanley has a look and a vocal style drenched in the noir classics of another day. But while she is the iconic image of the exotic club singer, there is nothing dated in her singing. Whether she is tantalizing listeners with a standard like “Just One of Those Things,” or reinventing her way through a more current classic like the Led Zeppelin rocker “Whole Lotta Love,” she puts her own stamp on the song. These are no cheap imitations. They are the real thing. Singling out highlights on an album filled with 14 highlights is a thankless job, but here’s a shot. She opens with a haunting version of “How Long Has This Been Going On,” with impressive accenting and solo work from guest trombonist Bob McChesney. McChesney also adds color to “Just One of Those Things” and a lovely “More Than You Know.” Harmonica virtuoso Hendrik Meurkens and cellist Cecilia Tsan join her for an atmosphere drenched version of “Boulevard of Broken Dreams.” “This 1932 song about the Parisian nightlife of the day,” she explains in the liner notes, “hit home with me. I could transpose the characters to my own experiences living in Hollywood, California when I recorded my first album a few years ago. The streets of Hollywood are lined with hopefuls, many of whom sing a song or dance. Alas, most of their dreams never come to fruition. I instinctively knew that a cello and harmonica would be beautiful on this song.” She put it all in her interpretation. The harmonica and cello help color her elegant take on the Ellington classic, “In a Sentimental Mood.” Meurkens also shows up on her willowy version of Billie Holiday’s “Don’t Explain.” She shows a swinging side in her romp through “I Was a Little Too Lonely” with able assists from Bill Cunliffe on piano and bassist Ray Brinker. Her arrangement of “Black Velvet,” she says in the liner notes, stems from her idea for a “Beatnik-sounding feel to the song.” I don’t know about the “Beatnik-sound,” but I do know it is one fine arrangement, including some fancy finger snapping from Steve Rawlins which Stanley describes as a tribute to Peggy Lee. Guitarist John Chiodini, who plays on all of the album’s 14 tracks, joins Stanley for a duet on “I’m a Fool to Want You” to close the album on a high note. Glamour at its sultry best: Lyn Stanley.
