Lost My Heart - Ingrid James and the San Gabriel 7 with Bill Watrous
"If this were the 50's Jazz era, Ingrid James would be performing alongside other greats such as Ella Fitzgerald and Billie Holiday. She is by far one of the best jazz vocalists I have every worked with. It's time for America to know and welcome this remarkable award winning Australian jazz vocalist."
-- Bill Watrous
"The San Gabriel 7's fourth CD is particularly special. Lost My Heart teams the group with the talented Australian vocalist Ingrid James, a singer who deserves to be much better known in the U.S. Not only does she have a beautiful voice and very impressive technique but she is a creative jazz singer, an impressive scatter, and a warm interpreter of lyrics. In addition, Lost My Heart features a couple of notable solos from guest trombonist Bill Watrous. The music is wide-ranging, including the danceable "Zigaboogaloo," Joni Mitchell's "The Hissing Of Summer Leaves," a touching version of "I Fall In Love Too Easily," a spirited rendition of the bossa nova "O Grande Amor" and some hot bop on "Conception." With its inventive Dave Cushman arrangements, concise and colorful solos, and appealing ensemble work, the San Gabriel 7 is heard throughout at its best. The group's matchup with Ingrid James is very easy to enjoy".
