FIVE STARS ***** THE MOONLIGHT SESSIONS VOLUME ONE-Review by Grady Harp

“Lyn Stanley redefines what a ‘song stylist’ is-“

Wildly popular Southern California vocalist Lyn Stanley’s new project ventures into new musical territory with her creative approach to American music. This time, she’s borrowing from the classical composers–Chopin, Beethoven, Debussy, Mozart, and Ravel to breathe a new excitement into a few jazz standards like you’ve never heard them before. This series begins with this Volume One. She has also added songs to this special project from the country and pop genres and added arrangement twists with jazz applications that modernize them as they delight your ears. Lyn delivers every song with the finesse and confidence of a veteran song stylist – and she is only a few years into her vocal career.

The ensemble is Lyn Stanley – vocals, Mike Garson – piano, Christian Jacob – piano, Tamir Hendelman – piano, Chuck Berghofer – bass, Ray Brinker – drums, Bernie Dresel – drums, Joe LaBarbara – drums, Luis Conte – percussion, John Chiodini – guitar, Chuck Findley – trumpet, Rickey Woodard – tenor saxophone, Bob McChesney – trombone, and Hendrik Meurkens – harmonica.

The tracks are as follows: All of Nothing at All, Willow Weep for Me, Moonlight Serenade, My Funny Valentine, Embraceable You, Why Don’t You Do Right, Girl Talk, Crazy, Close Your Eyes, How Insensitive, Break It to Me Gently, and In the Wee Small Hours.

The lady steams with talent and surrounds herself with the very best musicians and arrangers in the business. A total Winner!-June 2017
