Sunny Crownover and the Duke Robillard Orchestra sound timeless on new release
(Published: October 10, 2015)

Covers can either painstakingly echo or transcend the originals. With "Amapola" and "Moon of Manakoora," vocalist Sunny Crownover and the Duke Robillard Orchestra pay homage to the past while sounding invigoratingly contemporary.

Backed by Roomful of Blues horn players Doug Wolverton, Rich Lataille, and Mark Earley, as well as tenor saxophonist Scott Hamilton and Chris Davis on electric Hawaiian steel guitar, Crownover soothes the ears with the crystalline beauty of her voice. Shuffling, marching drums and jubilant horns give "Amapola" an infectious kick, and the song only gets better as Crownover's spellbinding singing melts with the swaying rhythms. Halfway through, Crownoever's vocals are soaring as the tempo picks up with youthful exuberance. It is pure bliss.

"Moon of Manakoora" continues the tropical beauty of this two-track CD. Davis' dreamy, breezy guitar has the warm glow of summer sunshine on an island paradise. Crownover again stuns with her voice, brimming with romantic longing. Her vocals are lush and hauntingly pretty.

Past and present combine here, and the overall effect is timeless.
