Title: Sarah Moule - A Lazy Kind Of Love
Post by Pete Atkin on Today at 11:37
The entire workforce at Hillside Music is severally and individually honoured and pleased to be able to offer not only all but also sundry the opportunity to purchase through their auspices, viz. the Hillside online shop at http://www.peteatkin.com/hillshop.htm, Sarah Moule's outstanding new album "A Lazy Kind Of Love".  Connoisseurs, such as yourselves, will immediately spot the considerable involvement of several considerable talents who have perhaps become familiar through the "Midnight Voices" CD, to such an enjoyable extent that the additional involvement of yours truly singing harmony vocals on "Living In Overdrive" and Sarah's own superb version of "The Flowers And The Wine" - given a (to me, at any rate) completely convincing change of perspective by means of a few tiny pronoun gender changes - are likely to be of merely incidental interest.   Highly, as they say, recommended.

Two tracks, the title track and The Flowers and the Wine, from this fine album were played by Russell Davies (http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio2/shows/davies/playlist.shtml) on last night's show.

If you listen again (http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/aod/radio2_aod.shtml?radio2/russell) to Russell, they start at 29' 51" and 38' 25", though if you do jump straight to these you'll miss some crackers!

This is a reminder that Sarah Moule has some very attractive engagements lined up for the near future. It is especially nice to see that Nikki Leighton-Thomas, the great interpreter of Landesman/Wallace compositions who absence for the music scene has not gone unnoticed, is making one of her now very rare and welcome appearances at Venue M on the 19th.

A Lazy Kind of Love gets a very good review in the current (July) issue of Jazzwise (http://www.jazzwise.com/). Although the reviewer is very much impressed by the quality of the songs Sharah has chosen - the Fran Landesman and Simon Wallace numbers are mentioned,  as are the songs that Joe Henry and Jule Styne - he makes no mention of the The Flowers and the Wine by Clive James and Pete Atkin.

I myself would say that the ommission is not altogether surprising. Having listened to the whole album nearly a dozen times, I'm finding it difficult to decide which of the album's fourteen tracks is my favourite. At present, and if pushed, I'd probably plump for the title track, which I think is a real knockout.

Incidentally, those of you have listened to Sarah & Pete's interpretation of the Landesman and Wallace gem Living in Overdrive may like to compare it to Nicky Lieghton-Thomas and Ian Shaw's treatment of the song. Here., courtesy of  Last fm (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Last.fm), is their version as it appeared,  first on the 2001 Babel album Damned If I Do (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Damned-If-Do-Nicki-Leighton-Thomas/dp/B000057IHL), an album that was to be repackaged by the Candid label as Forbidden Games (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Forbidden-Games-Nicki-Leighton-Thomas/dp/B00005RT85).

Living In Overdrive (http://www.last.fm/music/Nicki+Leighton-Thomas/_/Living+In+Overdrive)
http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/41YEPWXBMAL._SL500_AA240_.jpghttp://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/41M9JSH19WL._SL500_AA240_.jpg


The fact that other tracks from Forbidden Games can be played on Last fm (http://www.last.fm/music/Nicki+Leighton-Thomas/Forbidden+Games) should encourage all who listen to them to go out and buy this fine album while some copies  of it are still in circulation. It's becoming something of a collectors item that is really worth having.

I second that motion. For those of us what likes a good song, this album, along with Sarah's two previous ones, containing many Landesman-Wallace compositions, are required listening.

Erratum

The date of Sarah's appearance at the festival should read 26th of July 2008, not 26th July2005.

Mea culpa, mea culpa.

Did anyone take sharp-definition pictures of Sarah with Pete during his 606 gig in Chelsea (at which she duetted with him) that Sarah could use for publicity purposes ? Sarah has asked me whether I did so, but being a dinosaur I have an earlier-generation mobile that has no camera, and nor do I have a digital camera.

Would be grateful if any MVs who do have pix could let me know by Message - and I'll pass the info to Sarah.

Many thanks,
Naomi

From issue 85 (the February/March 2009 issue) of Jazz UK (http://www.jazzservices.org.uk/JazzUK/Magazine/tabid/55/Default.aspx)

http://www.jazzservices.org.uk/Portals/0/JazzUK85.jpg


Quote:
....Not sure that Ms Moule's CD is a jazz album at all, for although the band boasts top guns like Alan Barnes and Mike Outram as well as occasional haunting colours from Clive Bell's shakuhachi, they are all deployed completely in the service of the songs by MD, pianist and organ player Simon Wallace, an absolute master of his craft. He can turn in those storytelling piano solos as well, check 'Remind Me'. Most of the material is from the growing canon of work by Wallace himself and that brilliantly sharp lyricist Fran Landesman, who specialises in wryly humorous appraisals of love and a certain kind of metropolitan angst - searching for chemical comfort, wondering why we're depressed - which peaks on the insinuatingly catchy 'Living in Overdrive'. Moule can actually strut, but you have to wait until track 10, Bob Doubrough's 'Devil May Care' (boasting an insanely good bass solo from Alec Dankworth) for her to show it. So for once just forget about looking for jazz thrills and let the verbal intelligence, original tunes that you can actually remember and Sarah Moule's truly outstanding voice get under your skin. They certainly did mine. (BB)


I'm not altogether certain who BB is, but I think that it may bethis fellow (http://www.jazzservices.org.uk/Directory/tabid/72/Default.aspx?ContactID=2333)
