Capturing the warm sound of live Jazz is not easy in this age of technology and special sound effects, but Sarah Fenwick and Marinos Neophytou have succeeded by recording their CD ‘Jazz Way’ live, and preserving the dynamic energy that is so exciting about this beautiful music.
‘Jazz Way’ was recorded in Cyprus, and the cover art features a photograph of old Nicosia within the walls. The Cypriot musicians based their fantastic new work on their series of Jazz concerts titled ‘Incurable Romantics’ in 2012. The concerts were a great success, and received rave reviews from other respected musicians, like the amazing classical pianist Yiannis Georgiou.
“It was like being transported to a Jazz Club performance of a sort that I didn’t think existed in Cyprus. Sarah is a committed and polished Jazz singer. She has a beautiful, crystal, bell-like, high frequency voice. And she is a complete artist in that she clearly lives and breathes her singing,” he said.
Sarah gives a beautifully polished performance and is accompanied with much conviction and also heartfelt commitment on the guitar by Marinos Neophytou, he adds.
On the CD you will hear two blues originals, and seven Jazz standards. One particular favourite is ‘My Funny Valentine’, which is a unique improvisation on the 1937 classic song written by Rodgers & Hart. Music lovers will enjoy the most popular Jazz songs written by George Gershwin, Cole Porter and other great composers.
Just like love, these songs pass the test of time and remind us of the values of romance, dreams and passion.
