The popular and award winning jazz singer from Brisbane, the capital city of Queensland, Australia, has taken a new approach with this stunning new CD of Jazz favourites aimed squarely at a 21st Century audience.
"The song list suggests yet another safe set of standards. The reality is much more about life on the edge, about chances taken and pulled off with panache. Brisbane's Ingrid James is a fearless and gifted jazz singer for whom the songs are there to be teased, flirted with and then milked for all their improvisational potential. Sydney's brilliant Adrian Cunningham (reeds) and Matt Baker (piano) join James's fellow Queenslanders Owen Newcomb and John Parker in taking the likes of "You don't know what love is" and "Love for Sale" on a return to the wild side."
