Ingrid James & Trudy Kerr with the Backing of John Reeves, Joe & Pat Marchisella
Two Australian jazz singers, Ingrid James and Trudy Kerr, who formerly sang together in Brisbane 20 years ago -- One moved to London in the 90s, studied at Guildhall and now, has 9 recordings to date on the Jazzizit label (Trudy) and hailed as one of the UKs most polished singers by The Times -- the other, Ingrid, an award -- winning jazz vocalist and educator in Queensland described by Sydney Morning Herald as a "Fearless and Gifted Jazz Singer", stayed in Brisbane, studied at the Queensland Conservatorium of Music and has 6 recordings to date. A REUNION album was a long, cherished ambition for the two Jazz singers based on opposite sides of the planet, and finally it was realised with a recording made over 2 days in London in July 2009.
Reunion brings vocalists Trudy Kerr and Ingrid James together displaying an exceptional balance of interpretation and musicianship. They deliver an eclectic selection of Jazz, Latin and folk songs by composer such as Chick Corea, Bob Dorough, Baden Powell and Carole King. With a fresh approach, they bring new life to the songs and sing together, as a duet should be sung yet each of them having room to shine....
Trudy and Ingrid laid down the albums thirteen tracks at the Clowns Pocket Studios in Kent, UK. Song titles include a swinging version of This could be the start of something big. Inspired by Jon Hendricks Dancing on the Ceiling with a vocalese penned by Georgie Fame: Cry No More by Baden Powell and Soft Shoe based on the original Gerry Mullligan Quartet arrangement.
