****** Into The Blue ******
with the LOU BECKERMAN SEXTET to help celebrate the launch of Lou’s acclaimed new album.
With Lou Beckerman (vocals), Wayne McConnell (piano), Terry Pack (double bass), Dan Hayman (drums), Björn Dahlberg (saxes) & Merlin Shepherd (clarinet).
A glorious collection of jazz-infused original compositions and standards. The songs speak of the elements; of fragility, earth and erosion; and of flight, in an echo of our emotional landscapes. It’s all about space, texture and feeling and letting the performances breathe.
With her improvisational style, instrumental approach to the voice and a soulfulness to her sound Lou has come home to her roots in jazz, falling in love all over again with this endlessly beautiful musical form. Whether scat swing singing or lingering over a leisurely love ballad, the heart of her work has always been a love of music, her passion for jazz and her delight in performing for audiences.
‘Lovely originals alongside much loved classics make this a classy, sensitive and thoughtful collection of songs with world-class playing throughout.’ - Claire Martin OBE
‘Intimacy, depth, subtly offbeat songwriting. Lovely clarity and resonance vocally and ensemble feel to the arrangements. Music to live with.’ - Andy Bungay, Wandsworth Radio
‘An enjoyable album filled with different textures. Lou Beckerman’s voice is full of clear articulation, rich tones and confident phrasing. Beautiful singing, unique arrangements and lots of creative, melodic soloing.’ - Sussex Jazz Mag
