商品詳細

'If you're a fan of the jazz standard and swing era, love a voice that envelopes you like a warm embrace, and music that's executed perfectly by some of Toronto's finest jazzers, pick up the new record. Beverly has a reputation for telling a good story so I wasn't surprised to see a tune about how her parents met, songs of love and loss, and a song inspired by several visits to Cuba. And if you think she's caught in a time warp and yearning to be a jazz singer in the 40s or 50s, check the diverse styles the band plays so well. They include a bossa nova, a samba, uptempo swing, a waltz and bebop' ~ Errol Nazareth, CBC Radio. Big City Small World (April 26, 2014) The chemistry between Taft & Hiltz & Co. On disc 'n' stage is undeniable. Add in the talents of a horn section without peer - William Carn (trombone), Shawn Nykwist (tenor sax), Jake Wilkinson (trumpet) and Rich Underhill (alto sax-of Shuffle Demons fame and who btw is also running to be the new Mayor of Toronto!) - and the dream rhythm section of Artie Roth on bass and Sly Juhas on drums. Special guests like Adrean Farrugia on piano add further shades of colour to this rich musical tapestry. This release shows Taft to be more than a jazz singer or interpreter. She digs deeper into the language of jazz, towards grasping it's very essence for a better understanding of it's impact on our lives. As a result, every lyric carries the weight of this deeply-rooted relationship - each word delivered by a singer with an uncanny connection to her material. Taft's velvety voice and meticulous phrasing proves ideally matched to the band which has coalesced around her. The disc kicks off with "Clock Tickin," a slow minor blues inspired by the sounds of the clock above Hiltz' kitchen table. Juhas' drums keep tabs on the piece's electric pulse, under a blistering solo by Underhill. The disc kicks off with "Clock Tickin," a slow minor blues with lyrics inspired by the sounds of the clock above Hiltz' kitchen table. Juhas' drums keep tabs on the piece's electric pulse, under a blistering solo by Underhill. ?The flirty and biographical "Gay Repartée at the Ski Chalet" documents her parents' meeting - both playing key roles in her love of vintage jazz - and the track's slow, slinky groove provides a jumping off point for solos from Hiltz and Underhill, as you can hear the influences of both Ella and Peggy Lee in Taft's care. "Beautiful Listener" provides a direct conversation between artist and audience, hushed and inviting, with enough space to register the quality of Taft's vocal as it wraps itself around each word - in praise of a memorable audience member, and the beauty that can be found if our ears are open to it. "Soft Colours by the Sea Wall" paints a picture of Cuba, from Taft's personal relationship with Havana - with it's distinctive Latin bossa rhythm and Wilkinson's rich contribution on trumpet. On the upbeat, acoustic bass-driven "Trav'llin Along" with it's fully-charged horn section and Hiltz' muted guitar, Taft's voice soars as if smiling, swinging with the grace and power of an old-time big band. As well, a spectacular guitar solo from Hiltz adds fuel to an already well-nourished fire. The subjects behind "Izzie and Birdie" are not who you might have expected but are, rather, two young girls who do the playful things little girls do - with the music colouring the scene with an upbeat, carefree feel distantly reminiscent of Richard Rodgers' "My Favourite Things" before a breakaway piano solo by Farrugia and glorious accompaniment by a children's choir takes it somewhere fresh. All in all, Beverly Taft meets the Nathan Hiltz Orchestra showcases the Taft-Hiltz union with a release that heralds a triumphant return to big band jazz thinking. Taft lends an element of glamour to this project, rekindling the glory days of Doris Day (the understated jazz singer as opposed to her movie star persona) and the swing era. As a result, Taft and her beautiful voice do much more than meet Nathan Hiltz and his Orchestra - she completes the link in a reverent chain, transforming all 9 players into one while they resuscitate a much-loved era of vintage jazz and better times. "Taft's a solid performer, one of the busiest in the Toronto area... full of energy.' Toronto Star "Fresh, without tricks... recommended!" National Post 'Taft's sweet snarl is excellently matched to standards like Autumn in New York and the lilting With a Song in My Heart...Her wit and essential sweetness leap from the speakers with surprising vitality...' Wholenote Magazine 'Beverly Taft's strong suit comes shining through on the up tempo tunes. She has super intonation and the words are clear no matter how fast the song may be...' Johnny Jazz's Review / California Coast Jazz Personnel on 'Beverly Taft meets the Nathan Hiltz Orchestra': Beverly Taft - vocals Nathan Hiltz - guitar Artie Roth - upright bass Sly Juhas - drums Adrean Farrugia - piano (Izzie & Birdie) William Carn - trombone Shawn Nykwist - tenor sax Richard Underhill - alto sax Jake Wilkinson - trumpet.
