Come join the celebration of Daria's new CD, Strawberry Fields Forever, Songs by the Beatles"
Featuring: Daria, Vocals; Daria, Vocals Jonathan Alford, Piano; Dan Feiszli, Bass; Deszon Claiborne, Drums
A blend of Re-imagined Beatles, Jazz, Pop, Brazilian, Afro-Cuban and originals.
It's a voice that utterly captivated me the first time I heard it. The voice of Daria in action. No matter what she was singing, embracing the balladry of Great American Songbook standards, romping through familiar pop tunes, swinging jazz riffs, dipping into the roots of the blues and beyond. And it was vividly apparent, even in her early albums, that Daria was (and is) a singer with the talent to place her in the upper levels of the jazz vocal art.
The proof, as always, is in the tracks. Darias versions of the songs, arranged by bassist Sam Bevan and Daria, are sheer magic. - It'll be no surprise if Daria's memorable version of 'Strawberry Fields Forever, Songs by the
Beatles, really does last 'Forever.
