Reviews For Catherine Lambert
JAZZ pianist Kym Purling and vocalist Catherine
Lambert attempt to display the vital tension which enhances musical verve.
They have revised jazz standards, such as Makin' Whoopee and Let's Do
It, and also will play originals such as Don't Miss You Much, from the
Round Records disc Catherine Lambert and the Kym Purling Trio. This will
be a rare opportunity to catch one of Adelaide's coolest combos before
Purling heads to Vietnam, in July, to take on a three-month performing-arts
residency. His album, Trio Juice, is presently available on Round Records.
The pair already is working on its next collaboration; an early July trip
to London where they will meet up with Adelaide bassist James Clark and
perform on Ronnie Scott's famed radio show. They also will negotiate European
distribution for their CDs.
CATHERINE LAMBERT with the Kym Purling Trio (Round Records):
After so many years of singing, Catherine Lambert has finally found her
own true voice. On this disc, largely a collection of classic Cole Porter
and Gershwin songs, the Adelaide songbird sounds relaxed and confident,
tackling the tunes with a cool, seductive air. Buoyed by the fresh, airy
arrangements of Kym Purling's keyboard-driven trio, this set is strong
enough to be these performers' springboard to even greater success.
