Luxembourg-based jazz vocalist Edith van den Heuvel and pianist Frank Harrison play an official release gig for their new album.
Familiar to local jazz fans and listeners of Ron Tuffel’s shows ion Radio Ara, Dutch singer Edith van den Heuvel, together with pianist Frank Harrison, is releasing a new album of delicate ballads and jazz standards.
Recorded in Cologne, Beneath The Blue is a collection of beautiful and delicate ballads such as Michel Legrand’s ‘The summer knows’ and Joni Mitchell’s ‘Both sides now’, but also features jazz classics such as Duke Ellington’s ‘Caravan’.
Harrison’s playing has been described as crystalline, sensitive and impressionistic--it provides the perfect accompaniment for van den Heuvel’s silky and intimate voice. The pair has worked together since 2012 and has since performed numerous concerts in Luxembourg, Germany and the Netherlands. The release concert is organized with jazz club JAIL.
Beneath the Blue is available at Chapter 1 bookstore in Merl and Classic Mania in Limpertsberg as well as on iTunes, CDBaby and Amazon and via Edith’s own website.
