About the Album

Vocalist-songwriter Shelly Rudolph presents a unique and lyrical new song set, featuring legendary cellist David Darling whose layered textures blend with a subtle palette of piano-bass-guitar, and cameos from soprano saxist Devin Phillips. Along with six original songs are an inventively re-harmonized arrangement of "Stand By Me," and a sweetly soulful duet with Redray Frazier on Chris Pierce's "Slow Life." Long a poet as well, the album showcases her poetic and sensual expressivity on "The Way We Love," spoken against a sumptuous bed of Darling's cello tones and Tom Grant's piano. Rudolph's gospel-tinged originals, "Close Enough" and "Calling Me Home," open and close the session. Also joining Rudolph is guitarist Chance Hayden, bassist Dave Captein, and pianists David Goldblatt, Darrell Grant & David K Mathews. "A robust and captivating vocalist." - Jazz Times

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
