"I Know the Way to Brooklyn" by Lorraine Feather
About the Album
Singer/lyricist Lorraine Feather has been active in the music business for decades, but is best-known for the four albums she has recorded since 1999, which have featured a combination of well-known instrumental pieces with her contemporary lyrics (Fats Waller in her 1999 New York City Drag for Rhombus Records, Duke Ellington in 2004s Such Sweet Thunder, Sanctuary) and all-new songs in a classic jazz vein (Cafe Society, 2002; Dooji Wooji, 2005, also on Sanctuary). These albums have brought Feather extraordinary press and wide airplay; Such Sweet Thunder and Dooji Wooji both appeared on numerous Top 10 lists in publications including Jazz Times, Coda, Pulse, The Jazz Journalists Association, Modern Jazz Classics, and All About Jazz. "I Know the Way to Brooklyn" has been one of the most popular tracks on Dooji Wooji; it was written by Feather and Eddie Arkin; the musicians are Shelly Berg on piano, Dave Carpenter on bass, Grant Geissman on guitar, Gregg Field on drums, and Charlie Bisharat on violin.
