Louise Rogers

This is a different CD concept, ( vocal with bass backing).....Done quite well by jazz singer Louise Rogers, & jazz Bassist Rick Strong.............(Emphasis on ''strong''). This brings me back to a reel to reel project I created..........(voice & bass), which I did as well with bass phenom Phil Morrison some forty+ years ago. You are ''out there'' as it were! Everything is bared!! Mistakes are not an option. However, the musical symbiosis between Louise & Rick are such that their musical collaborative idea works beautifully. Their interplay is diverse, implied, & versatile......Combining an emotional yet tasteful delivery.........As well as the solid, rhythmic, quality of viable bebop.
