Jazz vocalist Wren Marie Harrington celebrates new album with release party on October 5th in New York
(Published: September 25, 2014)

Wren Marie Harrington's Light Travels has extravagant variety not limited in styles or even languages. The album is simultaneously soothing and tickling.

A dreamy tone is set with "Dream Dancing." You get lost in near Greek mythology allegory while the decently arranged instruments deceive you into keep dreaming; let your mind and body refresh in the lucky windfall of good dreams.

The second track, "Caravan," returns you to terra firma with a trotting pace and clarinet-like sounds then back to Duke Ellington Big Band standards. The feel luxuriantly invites you to dance and enjoy the outdoorsy exuberance. It fits well with Harry Belafonte's "The Banana Boat Song" yet the oppressive tone hidden in the beat is absent.

"Eu Sei Que Vou Te Amar" loves you seductively back to sleep, cuddling softly yet powerfully to the piano's lap. The language of love needs no words yet when sweetly mouthed they make all the difference. The long piano solo does the same magic as in the first track and here the repetition of "vou te amar" keeps one waiting for the big moment, which comes with a kick in "A Sleeping Bee." The percussion in the latter make one get on the chase of this one true love that is almost won, but not yet.

Each track in this CD is excellent, especially "Fina Estampa." An anthem to all lovely things and done beautifully with excellent percussion. The wooden camel bell sounds give a woody feel to its earthy beauty. A full party feel comes smokily to mind, with sweet-smelling sweat reminding one of ballroom dancing and the competition that eventually becomes a celebration of liberation and fun.

(Wren Marie Harrington will have a CD release party at the Metropolitan Room, 34 West 22nd St., New York, NY, 10010 on Sunday, October 5th at 9:30 p.m.)
