About the album
Reaching deep into a space of quiet joy and beauty, tinged with bit of melancholy, Seattle vocalist Carrie Wicks presents a new set of original songs that complement lyrically and melodically the three accompaning classics, Bob Dorough's "Small Day Tomorrow," Van Heusen and Burke's "It Could Happen To You," and Ellington's "Solitude." Featuring the same superb, simpatico trio as her prior two recordings, pianist Bill Anschell, Jeff Johnson on bass, and drummer Byron Vannoy provide a comfortable, warmly swinging enviroment for Wicks' lyrics to shine. "Stripping away artifice until it's bare, raw, yet dignified is a characteristic unique to this unique artist. That's called character. Billie Holiday had it. Jim Morrison did too. So does Carrie Wicks." - The Examiner.
