12-song Japanese mini-LP CD featuring CD-only bonus track “As Time Goes By”
The award-winning retro-jazz diva's fourth studio album, featuring familiar standards requested by fans.
• All new material (12 songs)
• Includes the single “Goldfinger,” named one of the “Best of the Best of 2022” by the international radio show, “Cocktail Nation”
• Deluxe mini-LP CD format with poster, obi strip and lyric sheet
• Mastered by Grammy-nominated engineer Jessica Thompson (Erroll Garner)
• 8 songs feature rarely-performed introductory verses
At her live shows, Laura Ainsworth receives numerous requests to perform beloved songs such as Julie London's "Cry Me A River" and Judy Garland's "Over The Rainbow." While she normally records long-overlooked gems, she finally obliged her fans by recording the classics they most wanted to hear her sing.
Laura's caveat was that she record the albums the Laura Ainsworth way, with fresh and unusual arrangements that present the songs in a new light. Eight of the twelve tracks include introductory verses that are in the original sheet music but seldom recorded. Arrangements for songs such as “Goldfinger” take unexpected departures from the familiar versions, while the understated horn section of Rodney Booth (trumpet, flugelhorn) and Chris McGuire (tenor saxophone) slow burn with gentle, nostalgic atmosphere.
Laura opted to record the backing band live in the studio, which is a departure from her usual multitracking approach. The album was mastered by sound engineer Jessica Thompson, who specializes in audio restoration and is Grammy®-nominated for her work on Erroll Garner's “The Complete Concert By The Sea.”
