Holly / Holly Cole
2018 release, the first album in five years from the Canadian jazz singer. Produced by Grammy Award winning producer Russ Titelman (Eric Clapton, Randy Newman, Ricki Lee Jones), and arranged by pianist extraordinaire Larry Goldings, Holly, was mostly recorded at Sear Sound Studio in New York City alongside an exemplary cast of both New York and Toronto based musicians. The recording comes complete with classics including "They Can't Take That Away From Me", "Everybody Loves Somebody" and "Teach Me Tonight" which showcase Holly's dynamic artistry while bringing currency to these timeless tracks. On creating the album, Holly recounts, "When I made this record I didn't know what to expect. All I knew was that I was excited; excited to work with producer Russ Titelman, excited to work at Sear Sound Studio in New York, a wonderful studio I had recorded songs from my "Temptation" recording in and excited to record with a whole new band that Russ Titelman had assembled."
