Jazz vocalist Ingrid James and pianist Louise Denson explore innovative ideas and themes, captured vividly in an album they hope will resonate with audiences around the world. "Portrait" is their story.
This is exciting playing by a wonderful group of musicians, and clearly they have a deep respect for the jazz tradition. Ingrid and Louise have brought new things to music by way of creative lyrics and compositions. They connect beautifully with one another in terms of sound quality - nothing forced, nothing overdone, and very refined. Words from one song describe their collaboration perfectly: "Warm and Beautiful". - Tony Gould, pianist/composer/educator
