Info zu Sconsolato

“Juliet Wood’s new release captures a musicianly and fine singer, alongside a stellar crew of players, recorded to a lovely room quality. I especially loved Sconsolato which is beautifully arranged and beautifully sung.” (Ian Shaw, Award Winning Jazz Vocalist)

“Difficult to know where to begin with this outstanding debut album from Juliet Wood… brilliantly arranged songs that are flawlessly delivered… this is the best vocal album I have heard this year.” (Nick Lea, Jazz Views)

London based jazz vocalist Juliet Wood is set to firmly establish herself as a voice to be heard.

This collaboration with three masters of Latin-flavoured Jazz - John Crawford (piano), Andrés Lafone (bass) and Andrés Ticino (drums & percussion) - overlays the flowing vocal lines with complex rhythms and an intriguing vibe.

The title track, Sconsolato, is a heart-rending song of love and loss written by bassist Jimmy Woode and recorded in 1968 by Mark Murphy.

Juliet’s carefully curated repertoire continues with musical gems such as Chelsea Bridge (Billy Strayhorn), Journey Within (Kenny Barron/Clare Foster), Midnight Sun (Lionel Hampton/Johnny Mercer), In These Shoes (Kirsty McColl et al.), Slow Hot Wind (Henry Mancini/Norman Gimbel) and two lesser known but beautiful Hoagy Carmichael tunes Lying to Myself and I Walk with Music. Also given a refreshing revival are Duncan Lamont’s bluesy Billie Holiday and the wistful Manhattan in the Rain. An up-tempo, percussive Fascinating Rhythm (Gershwin) completes this delightful collection.

Juliet Wood
London based jazz singer Juliet Wood is set to firmly establish herself as a voice to be heard with the release of her debut album Sconsolato.

This self confessed ‘musical magpie’ has pulled together a collection of tunes chosen for, and connected through, shimmering harmonies that are eloquently described by beautiful melodic lines. Each song holds a particular magic that inspired Juliet to colour it from her own tonal palette ranging from dark and smoky to crystalline and transparent.

Juliet’s inspirations have been Lambert, Hendricks & Ross, Norma Winstone, and Joni Mitchell amongst others, and their influence is clearly heard in the clarity of her articulation, her confident story telling and her heartfelt delivery of this highly personal debut.
