Album Notes
Lush Life With a Twist and Lush Life Straight Up - is a voice-over/spoken word homage to the Billy Strayhorn's provocative and poignant composition.
A collaboration between Voice Over Actor Juliette Gray, prolific jazz pianist and composer Bill Cunliffe and clarinetist/saxophonist Gary Gray. Music
arranged and produced by Bill Cunliffe - performance Directed and Produced by Cedering Fox. This is the first in a series of spoken word+music to some of the masterpieces of the Great American Songbook - illustrating how spoken word to these magnificent and poetic lyrics accompanied by the original music adds a listening dimension not possible by singing. As a bonus track Lush Life Straight Up offers a reprise of the music with the solos of these wonderful musicians.

Early Reviews:

Juliette - I love it - Great t hear your voice and Gary’s tenor.
Love, Eddie - Eddie Daniels - World renowned clarinetist

Beautiful Listening - Made me appreciate the Billy Strayhorn lyric as
never before. David Lehman - Poet and Author of A Fine Romance - New York City

This is exquisite. Reminds me of the Algonquin Hotel 1938 or the Moon
in 2020.
