About the Album

At once subtle and elegant, sultry and soulful, Gail Pettis' rich, warm vocals and understated phrasing have inspired comparisons to Nancy Wilson, Sarah Vaughn and Carmen McRae. The Seattle-based vocalist shines on her debut recording, offering very personal interpretations of standards such as "Black Coffee," "Moonlight in Vermont," "A Certain Smile" and the title track. Pettis also explores less traveled territory with songs like 'Help a Good Girl Go Bad," The Guy I Dream About" and an original, "We've Met Before," by pianist Randy Halberstadt. "Gail's delivery invites the listener into a warm and intricate atmosphere of musical magic." - Overton Berry, Seattle Jazz Hall of fame.

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!
