Album Notes
Danielle Freeman, and acoustic bassist, Matt Wigton, duet in the intimate debut recording. The album opens with an original duet specifically written for voice and bass called “Cycles (Tania and the Bear).” Two opera arias were arranged
encompassing jazz harmony and improvisational space: “Music for a While” from Henry Purcell’s Oedipus and “En Vain” from George Bizet’s Carmen. Distinctively, she trades solos on Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie’s “Anthropology” in a playful duet. In addition, New York based Israeli guitarist, Gilad Hekselman, joins the duo on a composition titled “Lost Dorian." Mr. Hekselman is also featured in her arrangement of the beloved Mexican folk song, “CuCuRuCuCu Paloma.” The album closes with a vocal jazz arrangement of Rachmaninoff’s haunting “Vocalise,” a prelude to the ballad “You Go to My Head.”

Originally from Phoenix, Arizona, Danielle received her Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance from Northern Arizona University. Following, she moved to New York during the summer of 2000 and actively performed as an opera singer throughout the Tri-State area. Since her 2009 inception as an opera-jazz singer, she has actively performed the Opera-Jazz
Project in New York City. Composing and arranging for the Opera-Jazz Project, defines her vision of opera-jazz, a musical form that utilizes the whole vocal instrument in timber, range and technique as a soloist and as a harmonic colored instrument.

Smooth Vocals Soothe the Spirit
Ms. Freeman has used her well-tuned talents and gorgeous voice to bring us an album that is at once unique, soothing, uplifting, and interesting. The jazz/opera combination sets her apart from the rest. Creative adaptations of arias and masterful original pieces make this CD a must buy!
