Fiona's Comments

Solid interpretation of a jazz standard.

About the Album

Accompanied by Hoagy Carmichael's sublime and understated composition, Ned Washington's poignant lyrics to "The Nearness of You" capture the simple pleasure felt when basking in the warmth of love. Few songs are capable of expressing the purity of unfettered feelings which happen in a deep relationship. It could be a sibling, parent, child, close friend or lover who is the subject of such adoration. Carefully handled by Dennis DeMille, this song from the debut EP "Sonority" to be released 29/04/15 showcases his use of tone, pace and timing.

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.
