JENNY EVANS

The English singer Jenny Evans has, for many years now, been regarded as one the leading jazz vocalists in Europe.When guitar player Paulo Morello played her one of his melodies a while back it was the start of a new musical project. Without further ado Jenny wrote lyrics to the tune, calling the song Like A Breath of Spring and this gave rise to a whole new programme with songs inspired by the four seasons of the year. For this project the vocalist presents a New Trio feat. Paulo Morello (guitar), Sven Faller (bass) and Felix Sapotnik (saxophones, clarinets, flute). Jazz standards like Estate, Early Autumn and Spring Can Really Hang You Up The Most find themselves in the company of classical melodies by Erik Satie and Thomas Morely; a sonette by Shakespeare - Shall I Compare Thee To A Summer’s Day – is complemented by European compositions like The Summer Wind and Michel Legrands The Summer Knows as well as one of Kurt Weill’s American hits, September Song. Paulo Morello has written a theme song specially for this project: The Four Seasons Of Love to which Jenny Evans wrote.
