New York State Of Mind

New York State Of Mind

Billy Joel at his absolute finest, this song completely evokes the yellow taxi cabs, the glittering skyscrapers and the steam rising from the manhole covers. The arrangement, so beautifully orchestrated by Joseph Atkins, is really a duet between myself and the soprano sax. I asked Richard Pardy (sax) to evoke Hill Street Blues, Cagney and Lacey and every other iconic New York TV show from the 80’s that he could think of when he played. He really understood what I meant and I can’t help but smile when I hear it.

The Way He Makes Me Feel

In 1983 my mother was asked to audition for a big new American film that was being cast over here in England. The film was Yentl. She met and read with Barbra Streisand for at least half an hour and when she wasn’t offered the part, inspite of being the producer, writer, director and star of the film Ms Streisand still found the time to write a hand-written note to my mother saying what a privilege it had been to meet her and how she hoped their paths would cross again in the future.

In an epic score by Michel Le Grand and with lyrics by Alan and Marylin Bergman, it was a privilege for me to record this tiny, precious gem of a song.

You Don't Bring Me Flowers

You Don't Bring Me Flowers

This Neil Diamond song was a turning point for me. I was still studying classical singing at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama when I went into Chappell of Bond Street looking for a volume of Schubert songs. I came out with a volume of Streisand songs and the rest, I’m afraid, is history! I used to sit at my upright piano in Wood Green and sing this to myself and as life became more and more challenging this song got more and more of a bashing! I’ve only ever really heard it in my head as a solo. It’s always seemed to me to be one person’s heartbreak.

The Way We Were

It’s always seemed to me that the world is divided into two kinds of people. Those who weep through the 1970’s film “Love Story” and those who’s world will never quite be the same after watching Streisand and Redford in the 1973 film “The Way We Were. For me, its a no-brainer, and when you add Marvin Hamlisch’s beautiful title song there really is no question.

The Brighouse and Rastrick Band brought so much heart to our arrangements of both The Way We Were and You Don’t Bring Me Flowers, and with my mother hailing from Brighouse there was a sense of life coming full circle. Being backed by the ladies and gents of this legendary and award-winning organisation was one of the greatest musical moments of my life.
