Recordings » Too Hot For Words
The companion CD to our live show, Too Hot for Words pays tribute to the Great Ladies of Swing, women who wrote the book on the swing & jazz style of singing popularized in the 1930s and 1940s. Singers like Ella Fitzgerald, Ethel Waters, Billie Holiday, Lee Wiley, and Mildred Bailey, whose unforgettable recordings of favorites such as "A-Tisket, A-Tasket," "Dinah," "You Go to My Head," "Looking at You" and "Concentratin' on You" (among others!!) were simply marvelous. Rather than try to recreate the originals, we used a great hot band and group vocals to give the songs a more contemporary flavor, while holding true to the classic jazz tradition. And our audiences were delighted!
Actually, it was the Too Hot for Words show that led us to a Jazz Cruise gig (to the Caribbean, what a blast!) and then the tour of Germany that produced With Thee I Swing, a wonderful live CD recorded in Hamburg for the Nagel-Heyer Label. It was an exciting time: my first Jazz Cruise, and my first European tour, in the fall of 1997. It took us almost two more years to complete and release the CD of Too Hot for Words, in the summer of 1999. It turned out to be an appropriate title!
Released August 1999 (Jukebox Jazz, JJZ-9904CD & CS)
