Product details

little wing is an album full of tried and true jazz standards, fashioned around the singular theme of angels. It's eleven tracks range from the haunting to the sexy with measures of whimsy and romance. The mood shifts from the humour of the upbeat and the angels sing to the dark shadowy close to you to the lush beauty and personal lyrics of if wishes were kisses. if wishes were kisses (track 5) was a finalist in the 2004 National Songwriters Competition!

With a top lineup, Little Wing features the talents of the up-and-coming Sydney-based vocalist Debra Blaquiere, together with award-winning jazz pianist Joe Chindamo and his bass player extraordinaire, Phil Rex.
