Golden Orchid CD

GOLDEN ORCHID CD: This recording started with one week left to film the movie, The Mexico Jazz Tour, with jazz greats from around the world, including Richie Cole and Gene Perla,  We had 4 days to record before departing San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, after the last tour concert. With their own performance rehearsals and gigs, both with the tour band and with others, the musicians had little time to devote to this CD project. With one afternoon to rehearse and two afternoons to record!  Then Gene Perla took over the project at his studio in Pennsylvania, adding components with Patrice, then mixing and mastering the CD

Get ready to rock your socks off, relax, and to go off into fantasyland…all with the music within this CD! Some of these songs, composed by Richie Cole, were never recorded previously!  This recording started with one week left to film the ‘boys in the band’ before they all departed San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, after the last tour concert and went their separate ways. With their own performance rehearsals and gigs, both with the tour band and with others, they had little time to devote to my CD project. However, the musicians herein ‘squoze’ me in! We had one afternoon to rehearse and two afternoons to record! Then Gene Perla took over the project at his studio in Pennsylvania. What a master at his craft! We’d be listening and editing with engineer, Nick, when Gene would say,”Stop! That note is out of pitch.” This was every instrument on the recording!! Then, I asked him to “symphonize” some of the songs. So, he would sit at the midi and in one take play the piece brilliantly! What a blessing that I have all of these very talented and authentic musicians! By Authentic I mean true musicians…no “play this note and repeat it in the edit”. Oh no! They played every note on this CD themselves! Now when it came to the bonus track, Pure Imagination, I did a “Musical Animation” that included repeats, reverbs and sounds like no other!!
Thank you for listening!

    What a fine CD. I've loved the genre for years, listen to similar Artists daily like Sophie Milman Holly Cole, Sara Gazarek or Jane Monheit and can add Patrice to my favorites. They arent really similar to Patrice but the band genre is. As I listen to Pure Imagination. (both versions) Open Fire, Here's to Life and You're Nearer, I want to hear even more of Patrice's low range, heard best in these tracks. Wow, Patrice is so fresh and new, with her feet planted in the fourties. Why havent I heard her before now?
    What's next, a Trio format to leave her more space?
    beyond cool
