Vitro, Roseanna - Music of Randy Newman


Lägg till önskelista + 159 kr - Utgången

With the release of The Music of Randy Newman, Roseanna Vitro stakes a claim as the first jazz vocalist to explore the richly melodic, sharply observant Randy Newman songbook. Having previously covered the music of American icons Ray Charles and Bill Evans in acclaimed albumlength projects, Vitro relished the challenge of selecting material from Newman's vast catalog.

This album is nominated at the Grammy´s 2011 in the category "Best Vocal Jazz Album". "What I love about Randy Newman is his ability to tell a story, and the fact that his music is Southern-flavored with a real taste of New Orleans," says Vitro, an Arkansas native who cut her musical teeth in Texas. "It provides me with a rare opportunity to delve deep into my roots. I felt so at home singing his songs, I could make three albums of his music."

The project is very much a collaboration with a brilliant cast of musicians, including Mark Soskin, whose long history with Sonny Rollins and his band goes back to the 1970s; rising violin star
Sara Caswell, heard recently with Esperanza Spalding's Chamber Music Society; percussion ace Jamey Haddad, currently with Paul Simon's band; guitarist Steve Cardenas, now touring with Ben Allison and Jenny Scheinman; and Vitro's working rhythm section of bassist Dean Johnson and drummer Tim Horner.

Although Newman's work as a film composer goes back several decades (he received two Academy Award nominations for Ragtime in 1981)-contemporaneous with his career as recording
artist-in recent years he's emerged as Hollywood's favorite tunesmith. His music has played an essential role in more than a dozen hit films, including The Natural, Meet the Parents, and the
Toy Story trilogy.
