Debut album of young Scots vocalist Daisy Chute backed by the David Patrick Trio. David Patrick-piano, Andy Sharkey- double bass, Adam Sorenson- drums. Songs from composers as diverse as Jerome Kern, Jimmy McHugh to Alec Wilder. An interesting selection from the American Songbook sung by a stunning girl with a stunning voice.
"Daisy, like Barbra Streisand, has a fully developed vocal talent at a young age. This girl has the gift of communication" -Mark Murphy
"....her voice and style are full of jazz know-how as witness the assured phrasing...Humphrey Lyttelton Best of Jazz BBC Radio 2"
"Such is her maturity of interpretation and phrasing that her age really is an irrelevance.
For those readers who have a knee-jerk reaction to anything with the word 'jazz' in the title, please don't be put off. Daisy sings with great respect for melody and lyrics alike - her clear, sweet voice places her firmly in the mainstream of the great tradition of popular music." -
Gerry Stonestreet "In Tune" Magazine
"Her voice has a pleasing freshness and purity........this is an accomplished debut from a very promising young singer." Kenny Mathieson The Scotsman
YOUNG DAISY CHUTE HAS BEEN SIGNED TO UNIVERSAL CLASSICS AND JAZZ AS PART OF PLATINUM SELLING ARTIST "ALL ANGELS"
At the tender age of 15 Daisy Chute has produced an exciting debut cd. The decision to do so was made in the summer of 2004 at The Fionna Duncan Jazz Vocal Workshop in Edinburgh when jazz legend,Mark Murphy, urged her to make a cd after hearing her sing in his Masterclass.
Having spent the previous year as the first ever vocalist with the National Youth Jazz Orchestra of Scotland she was gaining valuable performing experience and the summer of '04 found her being highlighted in the Ladies of Jazz concert at the Edinburgh Festival of Jazz and Blues. She was delighted to then be included in the Sophisticated Ladies Jazz Cabaret hosted by Todd Gordon during the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. In fact it was with this backing trio (David Patrick Trio) that Daisy did this recording.
Daisy was no stranger to performing having debuted when nine years old, in Les Miserables, as the Young Cosette during its Edinburgh run. She went on to charm millions of television viewers with her rendition of "You made me love you" as the young Judy Garland in Matthew Kelly's Kids Stars in their Eyes. ..... Now Daisy sings as herself with a voice that is both immediate and unaffected, warm and bright.
"Absolutely wonderful... I'm so excited and it's not even my cd" - Todd Gordon, singer
