The Right To Love QUIET MONEY. CD/DL
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.
