"Small But Elegant Place" by Carrie Wicks
About the Album
Proclaimed "...an extraordinary debut, a first-rate jazz vocal effort" by All About Jazz, Carrie Wicks's 2010 debut created great anticipation for what this "gorgeously warm and intimate" voice would do for a follow-up. That time has come as Wicks reassembles the same creatively sympathetic group, offering up another interesting set of music including standards such as "Laura" and "A Kiss to Build a Dream On," to Townes Van Zandt's "No Place to Fall," to eight of Wicks's original songs penned with her writing partner Ken Nottingham.
