An Evening of Elegance
… of lush strings and gorgeous harmonies.
It’s Peter Eldridge, his sensuous, velvet tones and deep storytelling and Kenny Werner’s divine arrangements.
Somewhere. It’s American elegance not heard or seen
since Fred Astaire donned a top hat!… Classic, soulful ballads and stories, including songs by Peter Eldridge,
Kenny Werner, Ivan Lins, Leonard Bernstein and others.
A few words from Peter ...I have been working on an album of beautiful ballads set for voice and full string orchestra – titled “Somewhere” – with arrangements by the inimitable Kenny Werner (this is a project Kenny and I have been talking about doing for about a decade) . Kenny has truly outdone himself orchestrating these songs (his string writing is just incredible). Some tunes by me, some by Kenny, and a few well-known classics.
There’s just no category for what Peter does.
It’s simply exquisite, timeless work. Jonatha Brooke
