CHIARA PANCALDI TRIO
On this album the young Italian jazz singer Chiara Pancaldi shows once again talent to sing jazz standards in a flawless and convicing way. Her pure voice was noticed by Kirk Lightsey and Darryl Hall and they formed a pure acoustic trio to record this album. This recording is a true live session, where they all took chances and improvised a lot. Each song, whether it is the famous standard “On the Sunny Side of the Street,” or the obscure Strayhorn tune “Love Came,” has its own atmosphere. Two special guests enrich the session, both in a ballad: Jeremy Pelt, who plays on “What is There to Say,” the track that gives the record its title, and Laurent Maur, who played in “A Timeless Place,” (The Peacocks).
