Jenny Green – Caught a Touch of your Love
(Self Released. CD Review by Frank Griffith)
Jenny Green’s musical and winning interpretations of everything from Oscar Brown’s Hum Drum Blues to Just You, Just Me (aided in duet with Richard Shelton) as well as Duncan Lamont’s fetching ballad I Told You So are a delight for all admirers of jazz vocals.
Jenny clearly has great feeling and exuberance for the music and has the ability to swing and float melodies while instilling gripping rhythms. This well produced recording is free from cliché song choices coupled with a skill to deliver the lyric with freshness and élan.
Her first class rhythm team includes Winston Clifford on drums, bassist, Neville Malcolm and the pianist Sean Hargreaves. Dig Sean’s haunting arrangement of The More I See You. The stellar soloing of hornmen Ed Jones (saxes) and Bryan Corbett (trumpet) add immensely to the date as well.
A top flight collection. Jenny’s launch gig is at the Pheasantry in Kings Road on 25 June.
