ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Rebecca in her earlier years, like Dinah Washington in her prime, possessed the vocal authority to confront a formidable song and overpower it if she so chose. Today she is more the stylist who can read lyrics with the all-knowing assurance of a Carmen McRae, Billie Holiday or Peggy Lee.
Her new CD, “You Don’t Know Me,” has all of the earmarks of a winning hand. She’s stacked the deck with aces, including a top rhythm section.
The versatile pianist Brad Hatfield is equally at home making music with Aretha Franklin and Mark Murphy or appearing with the Boston Pops and the Boston Symphony. He is also an Emmy-Award-winning composer.
Bassist Peter Kontrimas is a conservatory grad who over time has provided rhythm section support for Clark Terry, Rosemary Clooney, Sheila Jordan, Shirley Horn, and a host of other jazz and standard-pop icons.
Drummer Matthew Gordy is classically trained and has performed in a range of musical settings, including work with Three Irish Tenors and Aretha Franklin, and playing under conductors Leonard Bernstein and Aaron Copeland. (Jim Lattini is heard on drums on the title track.)
Talk about a coup. The lady surely pulled one off in acquiring the services of two of the best tenor saxophonists in jazz, Houston Person and Jerry Bergonzi. And how about attaining vibraphonist Gary Burton, an old friend, with whom she has previously recorded? Each guests on a number of vintage selections such as “I Didn’t Know What Time It Was,” “East Of The Sun,” “Alone Together,” “Don’t Go To Strangers,” “Yesterdays,” “I Wish I Knew,” “Weaver of Dreams,” “All of You,” “Smile,” “My Ship,” and “You Don’t Know Me.”

Paris, France, is said to be the City Of Lights. Rebecca Parris may not be capable of illuminating a whole city. She’d just settle for lighting fires in the hearts of those who still remember what good music is all about.

--Bob Perkins, jazz program host, WRTI Philadelphia.

impeccable taste; consummate artistry
rebecca parris' latest cd displays her always impeccable taste and consummate artistry. she treats these standards with her flawless musicianship and suggests each song has special meaning for her and her listeners. whether she scats or employs a latin beat she infuses this collection with her maturity, passion and unique parris stamp.

You Don't Know Me
Hi Rebecca, Just a note to say how much I enjoy your CD. Your choice of songs are great. I can tell you have worked at you singing to get your own sound. I hear shades of Nancy Wilson, Carmen Megrae, and Mark Murphy but there's only one Rebecca. I have been out of performing for some time. But have recently started singing jazz and standards again and I'm doing a new CD. Your swinging style has inspired me to sing again. May God Bless you. Pat Andreoli, male singer in Philadelphia.

After listening to Rebecca's new CD, You Don't Know Me, it confirms our belief that she is by far today's best female Jazz vocalist. We loved the CD. Rebecca's selections and her delivery were outstanding.In addition, her regular trio of very talented musicians, Brad, Peter and Matt are an unbeatable tour-de-force.
