Lyn Stanley at Tivoli HiFi talks about her Direct To Disc Project in Melbourne Australia August 2019

Lyn Stanley’s London With A Twist-Live At Bernie’s double disc 45RPM 180 gram Master Lacquer recording is one of a few direct cut albums made with 12 minutes plus three or more songs in a row with a vocalist. This is one of the greatest challenges in the recording industry and Lyn describes all that can go wrong and right when you approach a complicated project with an open mind. Here, on a rainy winter evening in Melbourne Australia, Lyn attended a McIntosh Laboratory 70th year Anniversary presentation at Tivoli HiFi, a fine audio retail store offering top audio equipment to Australian fans. Maning the turntable is Mark Dohmann of Dohmann audio. The video footage was filmed at Triovili HiFi in Melbourne Australia by Erica and Philippe Luder. The photos included in this video were contributed by A.T. Music LLC and edited into the video by Rego Media Group, Woodland Hills, California USA. The equipment used in this video are all part of the McIntosh Laboratories, Inc. product line and listed individually at the end of the video.

Lyn Stanley Press Release “London Calling”-a Toast To Julie London

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Los Angeles, CA: When sultry singer Lyn Stanley aims her attention on a topic, you can count on her to jump in with both elegantly clad feet. She immerses herself in research till she’s satisfied she can more than hold her own on the subject. These days, the Southern California-based jazz vocalist has her laser focus on another SoCal chanteuse, Julie London, a frequent presence on radio airwaves in the 1950s and ’60s with hits like “Cry Me a River.”

The upcoming Julie London-inspired project is the sixth release for vocalist Lyn Stanley, who was discovered in 2011 by the iconic pianist Paul Smith, a studio giant who was Ella Fitzgerald’s musical director and frequent collaborator over several decades. Lyn put out her first album in 2013, and since then has released four others to critical and popular acclaim. Her 2017 dual release, The Moonlight Sessions, Volume One andVolume Two, reaped glowing reviews and stellar sales—earning more than $200,000, a rare figure in the tiny independently produced jazz market. (Jazz overall accounted for only 1.2 percent of total music album consumption in 2017, according to Statista.com.)

In preparation for the upcoming sessions, Stanley is studying London’s timing, phrasing, musical preferences, and song selections. She’s also taking vocal training to forge greater understanding of London’s style. Lyn points out, “For delivery, it’s going to be my stuff, my way. But I want to understand her breathiness and laid back vocal technique.  We both are known for our sensual delivery but the technique differs.”

A long-time Julie London fan, Lyn recalls: “I unknowingly had her songs in my repertoire, and when my first album came out and critics compared me to her, it was a pleasant surprise.” Julie London recorded dozens of albums and sold millions of singles; besides her vocal ventures, she also enjoyed a successful 50-year movie and television career that included the TV show Emergency! But despite her success as a vocalist, Julie primarily considered herself an actress rather than a singer.

For Lyn Stanley, understanding that mind-set is key to grasping London’s way with a song: “Julie London described herself an actor, not singer, and had to get in character as a way to decide how the music should be delivered,” Lyn notes.  A project video link is here:  https://youtu.be/Zx4kwNOtDxs

While both Lyn Stanley and Julie London could be described as sultry and sophisticated singers, the upcoming session will be an appreciation, not an imitation. This album will offer new tunes not yet recorded that are London covers. To date, the exact song lineup for the album hasn’t been set in stone, but in addition to the likes of “Body and Soul” listeners will be treated to timeless tunes covered by London such as sultry and swinging versions of “What Is This Thing Called Love?,” “Girl Talk,” and “Route 66’.” Some of the song selections will be in London’s song keys in keeping with a tribute.

In addition to acclaim for her velvety alto, choice of material, and her unique and personal approach to songs, Stanley’s attention to detail in the studio has garnered raves.

Lyn can be counted on to surround herself in the studio with the crème de la crème of musicians. For this venture, she’s aiming for the intimate sound of piano, bass, drums, and guitar and percussion. This time Lyn is teaming up with pianist, Mike Lang, who was an acompanist on her debut album Lost In Romance (including her popular version of Fever) and also played in her Potions [from the 50s] album. Chuck Berghofer (bass), John Chiodini (guitar), Aaron Serfaty (drums and percussion) and Luis Conte (percussionist).

Always the perfectionist, Lyn looks forward to recording some of the tunes direct-to-disc; not only does she appreciate the sound the process yields, she also enjoys the challenge.  “We’ll have great engineering it but our performance is critical. You have to be into the musical moment as there will only be chord change charts-no set arrangements. The pressure is on all of us to create our best performances. But, it’s a great format if we execute it well.”

Stay tuned for more details on this exciting project. Who knows, this could be the start of a great new series of tribute albums from the ever-creative Lyn Stanley.

“Lyn–I have seen you evolve from a very good vocalist to now among the MOST OUTSTANDING. You get top billing on KKJZ. The new album…is marvelous!!” –Saul Levine, Mt. Wilson Broadcasting Inc.

2018 K-JAZZ FEMALE VOCALIST OF THE YEAR

LYN STANLEY

SETS THE STAGE FOR THE 2022 RELEASE OF HER-EPIC BIG BAND CHRISTMAS ALBUM ‘NOVEL NOEL’ WITH THE UPCOMING ONE-BY-ONE DROP OF SIX HAND-SELECTED LEAD SINGLES IN WINTER 2021 

Produced by Stanley And Recorded in Los Angeles And Nashville (Live in the Studio, Under Strict COVID-19 Protocols), The Two Month Campaign Starts WithA Re-Imagining of the Doris Day Classic “It’s Magic” and Wraps with “Boogie Woogie Santa Claus”  

Capping a prolific decade of sonically innovative releases featuring ensembles of L.A.’s top-tier musicians and recording engineers, KJAZZ (KKJZ 88.1 FM)’s 2018 Female Vocalist of the year Lyn Stanley builds anticipation for her epic 2022 album Novel NoelA Jingle Cool Jazz Celebration (Catalog #ATM3110- A.T. Music LLC) with the ongoing drop in the Fall/Holiday Season 2021 of six hand selected lead singles from the sonically ambitious, stylistically eclectic “really big band” collection.

KJAZZ (88.1FM-Los Angeles) will be interviewing Lyn Stanley, Allen Sides and John Chiodini on December 7, 2021 at 12 noon PST on the Rhonda show.  Don’t miss it!

 

Produced by Lyn and recorded live (under strict COVID-19 protocols) in Los Angeles and Nashville by Grammy winning engineers Allen Sides, Leslie Ann Jones and Bill Schnee, one of the most unique aspects of the 13 track collection is the fact that the singer includes fresh arrangement of standards that capture the spirit of the season but are not typical holiday radio fare. The celebration kicks off with three of these, starting with the October 6 release of the Jule Styne/Sammy Cahn classic “It’s Magic” (originally popularized by Doris Day) and continuing October 12 with “Moonlight in Vermont” and October 26 with “Come Dance With Me.”

With the 2021 Thanksgiving/Christmas season in full swing (literally!), Lyn will be then release on November 9 a version of “Little Drummer Boy” so smokin’ and jazzy (in 5/4 time) that she refers to it as “Little Drummer Boy/Jazz Version.” She follows this on  November 23 with a spirited take on “’Zat You, Santa Claus?” that includes her hilarious Louis Armstrong imitation. The 2021 fall/holiday season campaign of releases wraps December 7 with the drop of her bustling, bluesy take on “Boogie Woogie Santa Claus.”

“I like to think of this rollout of six singles as a special sneak preview, a few delightful tastes of Novel Noel-A Jingle Cool Jazz Celebration that only hint at the magic and grandeur that everyone will be able to experience when the full project is released next year,” says Lyn, whose most recent album, Live in Studio A (recorded at the famed Capitol Recording Studios), is entered this year for consideration in the special Grammy category of Best Immersive Audio album, judged by a committee of recording engineers. “And like Frank Sinatra sang, the best is yet to come, with goodies like a Viennese waltz version of “A Christmas Waltz,” a wild swing through a beloved Judy Garland ballad and a samba swirl through a treasured Carpenters classic.

“The reason for this special rollout of singles a year before the full album is rooted in some personal emotional issues I went through during the time of COVID-19,” she adds. “I’m excited to share these individual singles with my fans, but I’m really focused on how they will ultimately perceive the project as a whole. During a time when so many artists were isolated from each other and recording using remote connections, we found a way to safely record what is probably the only live big band album of the pandemic era. It was a remarkable experience and I believe that will come across as people listen. I think it’s fun to set the stage this way.”

Continuing her longstanding fruitful relationship with the hi-end audiophile world, Lyn is pleased to announce that the full collection – in addition to traditional formats and streaming – will be released as a double vinyl 45 RPM, an SACD-Hybrid disc authored by audio guru Gus Skinas and on USB with immersive 5.1 Surround Sound mixes and double DSD files. Many of the singer’s previous releases were popular among worldwide audiophile fans and critics, including the 2017 releases The Moonlight Sessions, Volume One and Volume Two (released on vinyl and as SACD); 2018’s London Calling: A Toast To Julie London, whose 33.3 RPM version received a five star review in the audiophile magazine The Absolute Sound; and her 2020 live performance at Capitol Recording Studios in Hollywood entitled Live At Studio A, a 2021 release with Immersive Blu-ray 1080p with Dolby Atmos and 5.1 surround sound options, and SACD released with Immersive 5.1, single DSD and 16/44.1 CD layers.

To make Novel Noel a special holiday release, Lyn commissioned original illustrations for each song, which will appear on a poster included in the vinyl packaging. She also plans to make postcards as part of her marketing materials.
