Description

Following the discovery of rare Gershwin sheet music in an attic - unopened since WWII - Victoria Hart and Pavao have recorded the results of their findings on this unique new album. Though George Gershwin was a prolific writer, not all of his tunes became standards. This collection, including songs never before recorded in this country, shows there are still Gershwin gems waiting to be discovered. This is a collection of just 12 of these fascinating songs, brought to life for a contemporary audience by "George Clooney's singing waitress" Victoria Hart and the Brit nominated string quartet Pavao. Guests include Russell "The Voice" Watson, Revelation (stars of "The Last Choir Standing" TV Show), critically acclaimed jazz artist Atila and MOBO nominee Tony Kofi. The arrangements and style mark a new departure for 19 year old Hart, whose brand of "swing pop" has attracted many admirers since her career began in earnest less than 18 months ago. This is her second full album and her most challenging musical enterprise to date. Tracks: You Are You / Tonight's The Night / Isn't It A Pity (with Russell Watson) / Ask Me Again (with Tony Kofi) / I Won't Give Up (with Atila) / My Sunday Fella / Innocent Lonesome Blues Baby (with Revelation) / Little Jazz Bird / Vodka / I Can't Be Bothered Now / When You Want 'em You Can't Get 'em / I Won't Give Up (Single Version).
