Bebop Spoken There

Jennifer Wharton: "People forget that the trombone is so glorious. It can be like going to church, or getting ready for battle. It can be a lot of things....For a longtime I was the only female trombonist in New York," - (DownBeat May 2021)

CD Review – I Love you Too Much by Elly Kouri

Elly Kouri, (vocals) David Pearl (piano) Dan Martin (bass) Rodney Harrison (drums) Michael McGinnis (clarinet).
(Review by Kath Jobes)
Elly Kouri started out as a rock singer but has lately turned to jazz and recently released her first Jazz CD "I Love You Too Much" (available on Amazon as CD or MP3 download).  Elly has brought together a collection of beautiful and intimate songs exhibiting several aspects of love including soothing reminiscence, heartbreak,  hope and just a spark of fire!

Elly Kouri has a pleasant Jazz voice and her sense of rhythm is excellent as she sings in a communicative and intimate way… this is lovely background music for an intimate dinner or a winter night cuddled up with your loved one and a bottle of wine in front of a roaring fire.

the tracks are as follows: Can't We Be Friends; Billie's Blues; I Love You Too Much; The Second Time Around; Do I Move You; Weep No More; Tra La La; The Blues Are Brewin'; Solitude; Please Send Me; Someone To Love; Softly; Tomorrow Is My Turn; If We Never Meet Again.
I particularly like the title track, I Love You Too Much, a beautiful - If We Never Meet Again and her sensitive interpretation of Weep No More.  A CD to add to your collection!
