Award-winning vocalist Tish Oney teams up with guitar legend John Chiodini for this guitar/vocal duo album the likes of which have not been experienced since Ella Fitzgerald collaborated with Joe Pass... The Oney/Chiodini team tours and records together on a regular basis and this album bears witness to their amazing musicianship, spontaneity and teamwork. The disc includes Tish's beautiful new arrangements of five jazz standards (many of them with seasonal themes) in addition to eight new originals (also composed by Tish and friends). The disc has earned international airplay on jazz radio and adult standard radio and is still being added to playlists throughout the world. Oney's third solo jazz album, "Sweet Youth" represents her maiden voyage with hotshot jazz label Blujazz (based in Chicago) and firmly establishes her as an important vocal jazz force of the new decade.
"When Tish Oney sings, the sweetness of her soul blooms like a pungent, colorful, beautiful orchid... Oney has a truly pitch-perfect voice, wonderful phrasings, and enough swing or scat to own her personal page in the legitimate jazz singer's ledger. Tish Oney should give more famous singers like Diana Krall, Dianne Reeves, or Jane Monheit pause for concern. She's firmly on their trail." (Michael G. Nastos, All Music Guide)
"Oney is one of the finest arrangers and composers on the jazz music scene today and her vocals are breathtakingly beautiful." (Joe Montague, Riveting Riffs Magazine)
