Over het album
Laurie Antonioli is one of the era’s definitive jazz vocalists, but she’s got a little rock ’n’ roll in her soul too. Her new album expands her creative purview with an emotionally trenchant program focusing on her collaborations with state-of-the-art jazz composers - including Russell Ferrante and Nguyên Lê - and new arrangements of songs by iconic singer/songwriters Joni Mitchell, Neil Young, and Sheryl Crow. "The Constant Passage of Time" is her 7th album overall and 3rd created with her American Dreams band, a superlative quintet featuring saxophonist Sheldon Brown, guitarist Dave MacNab, pianist Matt Clark, drummer Jason Lewis, and bassist/recording engineer Dan Feiszli. The arrangements cover a lot of gripping musical ground, making particularly brilliant use of Brown’s bass clarinet and the stinging fretwork of MacNab.
