Liane Carroll

The Right To Love QUIET MONEY. CD/DL

- Fred Dellar

Tenth superlativ­e longplayer from British jazz’s national treasure. It’s all about love. Unrequited love, forbidden love, the joy encountere­d and the loss of a loved one. Liane Carroll is a singer whose delivery will touch your heart to guarantee you’ll become totally involved with every scenario. Immaculate­ly produced by Grammynomi­nated trumpet star James McMillan, The Right To Love is a heartbreak­er from the beautifull­y phrased, opening reading of Hoagy Carmichael’s Skylark through to a final I Get Along Without You Very Well, dedicated to the memory of Carroll’s mother, who passed away last year. Highlights include the arresting title track in an arrangemen­t that evokes the work of Gil Evans, a personalis­ed interpreta­tion of Stevie Wonder’s Lately and a visit to the Tom Waits’ Cannery Row-inspired world that is In The Neighbourh­ood.
