Reissue with the latest remastering and the original cover artwork. Comes with a description written in Japanese. Pianist Debbie Poryes works here with a Dutch trio formed right after her arrival on that scene – a nicely-balanced group that really respects Debbie's sensitive touch on the keys, and seems to make her subtle sounds come out even more than they might in the setting! Poryes has an approach that's on the mellower side of lyrical – kind of a post-Bill Evans approach, but even more subtle overall – yet one that's also very striking in its subtlety – as the lean choices of notes show just how far and free jazz piano had come by this time, but in ways that could still swing and stay inside. The group features Hein Van De Geyn on bass and Hans Eykenaar on drums – and titles include "For Brad", "Sweet Georgie Fame", "Holland", "Foolish Door", and "My Romance".
Cet ouvrage vous ouvre une porte merveilleuse : celle qui, en vous, conduit à la lumière. Il nous invite à apprivoiser notre part d’ombre, non pas pour la rejeter mais pour en extraire la sagesse qui y est enfouie. Car, si nous apprenons à accepter notre ombre, telle la plante qui s’épanouit en déployant ses racines sous terre, nous devenons pleinement nous-mêmes.
Singer, guitar player and songwriter Debbie Bond has been paying her dues in the Alabama backwoods for over 30 years. Her singing has been compared to Bonnie Raitt and Maria Muldaur, both of whom she cites as being influences on her music. The truth is that Debbie does it her way, playing a dynamic mix of soulful originals and covers. Her impressive musical story includes years of performing with older traditional Alabama blues musicians, including Johnny Shines, Eddie Kirkland and Willie King. Her immersion in the blues has deeply flavored her guitar playing, soulful voice and original song writing, yet her sound is contemporary and original, incorporating soul, blues, rock, jazz and Americana influences. This unique musical synthesis can be heard on her latest album, 2016's Enjoy The Ride.
