ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Short Songs project was written primarily in 2005. Amanda had the help of a few wonderful musicians. Charlie Banacos, her teacher, has been a great inspiration and source of amusement. Peter Slavov, Vardan Ovsepian and Aaron Parks all contributed to the arrangements and to Amanda’s confidence in the project. The full-length album was recorded at the Peter Karl Studio in May 2005. Amanda prides herself in her all-star band, Aaron Parks/piano, Keith Ganz/guitar, Peter Slavov/bass and Kendrick Scott/drums. Keith Ganz mixed the album and it was mastered at DB Studios in New York. Tal Goretsky designed the CD jacket cover and Aram Jibilian took the photos.

About Amanda:

Born in Santa Cruz and grew up in Sunnyvale, California (the heart of Silicon Valley). Went to UC Davis after high school to study engineering. Joined a Jazz/Swing/Ska band called the Irradicats and fell in love with Ella Fitzgerald. Her new interest in jazz singing led her to Berklee College of Music where she got a degree in Professional Music. Supporting herself through college Amanda sang at many many restaurants, bars, clubs, weddings and cruise ships (evening tours around Boston Harbor). Eventually she moved to Paterson, New Jersey because of a great deal and its close proximity to New York. In Paterson she wrote the bulk of the music for “Short Songs (EP)”, her debut release. Amanda currently lives in Harlem, teaching, writing and practicing Bikram yoga. Amanda sings with her band in New York and with the Vadim Neselovskyi Group.

Touches my Joni Soul
The way Amanda sings "it's riding high and it's riding low" touches my Joni soul. Beautiful natural voice with great warmth & depth with an easy feeling to it. "These Days" is on Repeat. I look forward to the release of the full album. Congrats!

"...resonates with the sound of greatness"
The other day I asked my mentor about techniques I could use to do this or that in my art, he replied, 'Just make it good'.

Amanda Baisinger does just that on this debut cd--'makes it good', very good. Short Songs resonates with the sound of greatness. Like a precious novel that is timeless, this collection of songs is one that you can visit again and again. It has more to give with every listen. Plus, you feel you are in good hands--with such a talented band and Amanda's beautiful, warm and welcoming voice, it makes creating such gorgeous sounds seem easy. Amanda Baisinger is one of the most talented and unique voices I've heard in a long time. Thanks Amanda!

Great voice... good songs.
This CD is good and I love Baisinger's sound, with quiet soulful tones. I think she is still growing as an artist and expect to hear more from her.

Recurring Dream
I have this recurring dream where I am lying in a field of pussy willows, eating pumpkin pie. Every so often a unicorn goes galloping by, draped in pearl necklaces. The unicorns drink from a lake of rootbeer floats. The music playing from the flowers is Amanda Baisinger.

It is music that grows on you. I listen to it every day together with 4 other CDs that keep me company at home while I'm working on my computer or doing my chores.

Joni meets Nora meets new. Very nice. Ria (riacurleymusic.com).
Hey Amanda,

Very nice work - reminiscent of Joni and Nora but all your own. I might even have a song or two for you if you like. Drop me a line sometime. Ria (riacurleymusic.com).

Beauty and feeling and warmth - so moving.
Beauty and feeling and warmth - so moving -we love listening to Amanda at home and in the car -one can experience her personality and wonder in her voice.
Love It All.

Timeless "Up On The Roof"
"Up on the Roof" has a timeless quality that amazes. But I have to say my favorite is Amanda's take on Cole Porter's "Everytime We Say Goodbye". The sweet melancholy tones and pacing Amanda gives to this song never fail to take me to that soft spot in my heart and release sweet forgotten longings.

Great Easy Listening CD. Great for a Sunday evening wind down.
