I've put my name to a list of many others for action 2015.. <a href="http://bit.ly/2015openletter" target="_blank">http://bit.ly/2015openletter</a> #action2015
There are so many constant challenges going on in the world. Very often I / You / We feel overwhelmed and powerless to make any difference towards transformative change. When I'm asked to contribute to an initiative I can endorse, it feels as if it's the very least I can do. I appreciate very well the privilege of my own circumstance – living in a relatively peaceful Western country, with access to so many resources that billions of people could never even dream of.
Having spent the last few weeks in South Africa I feel a constant sense of despair and frustration about the kinds of endemic social and economic injustices and disparities that still continue to fester, more than twenty years after the end of apartheid.
Most of my concerns are for the future generations of young people growing up into a world that offers them almost nothing in terms of education, security, opportunity, sustainability and a decent quality of life… How fragile we are indeed.

With my cohort Mike Stevens - (aka Rhett Butler) in NOSTALGIC mode…
Wednesday 7th of January 2015 10:22:15 AM
I've been singing since I was a very young girl. Singing has given me particular joy and my taste in music has always been eclectic. Apart from recording a version of Cole Porter's "Every Time We Say Goodbye" for the Red Hot and Blue project in the 1980's and a tongue in cheek version of " Keep Young and Beautiful" as the last track on DIVA, I'd never recorded in the Classic Jazz genre. NOSTALGIA came about from my curiosity and interest in putting something down just for the record, so to speak.
I started searching for songs on the internet and went on to transcribe them on keyboard, writing out the chords that intuitively appeared to speak to me.
I was intrigued by the idea of personally interpreting the songs in my own way, rather than going down the more standardised route. Later this month I'll be recording a one off performance of NOSTALGIA for a PBS special at the Orpheum Theatre in LA..
which offers a unique opportunity to capture the songs live on stage - working with Natalie Johns, who directed the videos you may have already seen on You Tube.
I hope that those of you who've heard the album have enjoyed the journey so far. Onwards..
