Description

Set against a New York backdrop that travels over into the Brooklyn borough, Amanda Thorpe's powerful new collection of songs, Promenade, features acclaimed New York musicians Tony Scherr, Robert Jost, Don Piper, Brad Albetta and Craig Chesler. Half of the songs were co-produced with Brad Albetta (Freddy Johnston, Martha Wainwright, The McGarrigles, Teddy Thompson), and the other half, with Don Piper (Don Piper Situation, Bedsit Poets). This mix of live band recordings and the more introspecitve self tracked songs provide a suprizingly easy shift between the two settings, a little like Thorpe and her songs that move fluidly between the initmate and the public, so keenly captured by Variety.com Thorpe balances brassiness and vulnerability with panache." This moving and inspiring CD features the radio-friendly Bar Tabac, the dark but dreamy Catching the Light and an interesting new take on Paper Moon, performed in 6/8, with minumum support instumentation.
