Janet Seidel - Far away places

Australia's popular jazz vocalist Janet Seidel takes the listener on a personal trip with every song and her quietly achieved renown has been largely due to her way of interpreting a song.

The Sydney based Janet Seidel Trio has a new CD - "Far Away Places" - their take on a theme prompted by the title track, a 1940s hit song evoking the yearning to be whisked away to another time and space.  


The notion of musical wanderlust was ever a romantic one and possibly never more so than in early stages of the age of international travel. The mere glimpse of a bongo, a ukelele, a palm tree, was enough to visualise blissful escape. These were simpler times.


And so with the Trio's natural bent for finding a fresh sound within a retro style, the repertoire takes in a mix of vintage songs, old school world music if you like, and songs that dreamily transport the listener to another headspace.


Expect a minimalist approach to a nostalgic journey featuring Janet's unique and personal vocals, touches of piano and rich acoustic guitar / ukulele and double bass from Chuck Morgan and David Seidel respectively.

The album features guest appearances from Paul Furniss, Ben Jones, Bob Henderson, Fabian Hevia, Hamish Stuart and Mitchell Morgan
