Satin Doll Trio
SD Music, 2006, CD
Instrument: Female Vocals
Jazz Ruler Type: Ballads, Blues
O’s Notes: Fred Ferris (b) and Ken Kilpatrick (g) back up the lovely Patrice Ferris (vocals) to make up the Satin Doll Trio. Patrice is out front and she is easily capable of handling the spotlight. The program is centered on romance with both serious and playful numbers like “There’s A Lull In My Life” and “It’s Only a Paper Moon” respectively. She has excellent tone and a pretty voice. Kilpatrick bounces along with single notes, chord melodies and cool rhythms while Fred is the anchor. The sound is very transparent and clean allowing the listener to absorb all of the nuances.
