Fiona's Comments

Slow time gives this rendition its charm.

About the Album

The song "The Nearness of You" is one of my very favorite standards. Dena Taylor's rendering is outstanding. She captures the seduction of the lyrics with her lilting vocals. This classy, mellow arrangement (especially the jazz guitar) conjures images of a a roaring fire, bottle of good wine, and a slow dance with the one you love. - Bree Noble, Women of Substance Radio

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
