About The Album

Enjoy the silken voice of songstress Sylvia Bennett enveloped by three of the world’s greatest tenor saxophonists, the late Boots Randolph, Ed Calle and Kirk Whalum. Together, Sylvia Bennett and producer Hal S. Batt create musical history once again, this time with the three tenors playing on the same album. Bennett and Batt made history before when they created “There Will Never Be Another You,” a tribute CD/DVD release with unreleased audio and video of the legendary Lionel Hampton. On this CD, the more intimate side of Sylvia Bennett is showcased with this wonderful collection of timeless standards.

Complementing the vocals and the saxes are some of the finest musicians of our time including bassist Chuck Bergeron, pianist Brian Murphy, drummer Frank Derrick, guitarist Hal Batt and percussionist Sammy Figeruoa.

“It’s back to real players, back to grass roots. It’s organic music, not amplified and without synthesizers,” Producer Hal S. Batt says. “The feel is the Blue Note lounge, authentic music...from the heart.”

“Sylvia Bennett is a singer that personifies artistry in the truest sense of the word. Her tone is warm & pleasing to the ear. This album is like shaking hands with a smile as all the players bring their ‘A’ game to the session. There is no need to get the jeweler’s loop out on this record as the performers prove that great music speaks for itself.”
