ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Bernice Sacks is an engaging singer whose captivating warmth, sense of humor, passion and surprise are always in full force when you meet her. No wonder those same charms are always present when you hear her on this new CD, “My Love Story.” It’s a heartfelt and sometimes swinging tribute to Bernice’s late husband Ray who was the inspiration for this project.

As she says in her liner notes for this recording: “Ray Sacks was my husband, my teacher, my lover . . . These songs are a tribute to him and to what has remained of him with me throughout my life: his love, his intelligence, his children – Raina and Ivan – and his grandchildren, Raymond, Madeline, Sophia and Alexandra. These songs convey the happiness and the love we shared . . . “.

Whether on a playful tune like “Too Marvelous for Words” or an expressive gem like “Something Happens to Me,” Bernice puts her stamp on each song, which has its own special meaning to her personally.

Bernice’s delivery backed up by the interpretive style of Keith Ingham, one of New York’s finest players and arrangers, on piano, along with Saadi Zane on bass, Tommy Morimoto on Sax and Arnie Wise on drums makes this recording a first class outing.

Bernice enhanced her life-long love for singing while attending the well-known jazz clubs on 52nd St. in Manhattan. There she saw all the greats like Charlie Parker, Billie Holiday and Dizzy Gillespie. After Ray passed, Bernice worked at her dream to sing professionally and honed her vocal style and phrasing with pianists the likes of Roland Hanna, Luther Henderson and her dear friend Albert Dailey. Soon after, Bernice began appearing at New York supper clubs such as Birdland and the Iridium.

This new CD beckons to listeners that believe in love and enjoy a good love story.
Hope it brings both your way.
