Provocative, sensuous, sophisticated, with wit, warmth and wisdom. It's all here on Becca Duran's very creative and unique "In Love Again" CD. This is the perfect album to take with you on a relaxing weekend drive or to play while you are out sailing on your boat or while you are cooking pasta on a quiet evening at home. This is an album for all seasons, full of light and breezy jazz/pop vocals. Becca's voice has many colors. In her vocal readings, Becca's voice is coolish at times yet capable of sounding cheerful or fragile and vulnerable at other times. Several of the songs are well-known jazz standards like Rogers and Hart's "It Never Entered My Mind" and Monk's "Ask Me Now."
But most are songs penned by jazz artists from the U. S. and Canada in collaboration with Becca herself. There is plenty of drama here. Listen to the poetic maturity of "So It Goes Again" or the teasing romanticism of "Hide & Seek." Catch the warmth of the African Savannah Becca evokes in her French version of L'Africaine. There are many treats here for the ear. If you want to smile listen to "Roving Eye" and of course the quirky song about a jazzed up parrot named "Lolito."
Becca invites anyone to contact her who may be interested in acquiring lyrics or music for any of her original material on this album. Check out her website at firstname.lastname@example.org
