Event Details

Wild Silk Strings Project has grown out of a long-standing musical collaboration between Australian jazz singer/lyricist Ingrid James and Canadian-born, Australian-based pianist/composer/arranger Louise Denson. This 9-piece ensemble is proud to launch their new CD “Colours Of Your Love” tonight. They will present a rich program of songs from around the world, drawing from folk, jazz, Brazilian, pop and classical repertoire.

“From the opening reworking of Eric Satie’s ‘Gnossienne No.1’ through to the Brazilian composer Geraldo Vandré’s ‘Tristeza De Amar’ – and then onwards to Carole King’s ‘It’s too Late’, Supertramp’s ‘Logical Song’ and Gordon Lightfoot’s ‘If you can read my mind’ – the listener is taken on a thrilling journey through an eclectic repertoire with a vast emotional landscape. The boldness and the variety of the song choices on this album means that the ‘sound-world’ has to be strong enough to bind it all together… and it certainly is. The personality of the writing and arranging behind this album makes sure of this and shines through on every track”. Pete Churchill, Professor Jazz Composition, Royal Academy of Music, London – singer/pianist/conductor

If You Could Read My Mind (Lightfoot)
It's Too Late (King)
Constant Craving (Lang)
Tristeza de amar (Vandre)
