Anzic, 2017, CD
Instrument: Female Vocals
Jazz Ruler Type: Ballads, Blues
O’s Notes: That jovial, vibrant, harmonizing female trio Duchess is back“Laughing at Life.“Amy Cervini, Melissa Stylianou and Hilary Gardner sing fourteen popular classics like “On The Sunny Side of the Street”, “Strip Polka” and the title track featuring Lederer. The supporting band is tight including pianist Michael Cabe with Jeff Lederer on tenor sax for four songs and special guests Anat Cohen (cl) and Wycliffe Gordon (tb, vocals) for two selections each. This modern day rendition of the Boswell Sisters (circa 1930s) is worth revisiting!
