ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Experience the music,"Lucky in Love" CD stirs it up! R & B, Jazz, Gospel and POP...It cares the tunes into the years, yes in that "Old School" way with a back beat adding an oral sensation that won't quit.

The band is a collection of musicians that complete and make the listener hungry for more. Arrangements and piano/organ by James Weidman, makes swinging combos with Fran's voice. Dick Katz's piano duets w/Fran changes the mood in "Solitude" and "No One Ever Tells You". James Weidman...a singer's player.

Bill Saxton's sax have you rocking, while Warren Smith, Bernice Brooks and Michael Dawson keeps the beat to add that special feeling, "Hold on I'm Comin'";"For Once in my Life"; cooling it down with "Midnight at the Oasis".

Ross Konikoff's flugelhorn and trumpet solos exhilarates in "You Belong to my Heart".

Meanwhile, Marcus McLaurine is continuing the rythmic passion as only a bass player can do.

The band is "smoking" come here.

"Lucky in Love" helps to tease all of the senses and leave you wanting more...have band will travel...Thank You

Great release by a great artist
I was fortunate to attend the CD release party of “Lucky in Love.” This release was held on March 25, 2007 at Saint Peter Lutheran Church located in New York City. “Lucky in Love” is a CD that was released by this very dynamic and talented woman, Ms. Fran McIntyre (Vocals and Percussion). The fabulous list of performers included Dick Katz (Piano), Bob Cunningham (Bass), James Weidman (Musical Director and Piano), Sue Terry (Soprano and Alto Saxophone), Ross Konikoff (Trumpet and Flugelhorn), Marcus McLaurine (Basses), Warren Smith (Drums), Carol Sudhalter (Flute and Baritone), and Michael Dawson. From the moment I walked in I was taken by the atmosphere of the place and the dynamic of the music and I loved it. I was so sorry that I arrived late and unfortunately I missed the feature song “Lucky in Love.” As I conversed with others I was told of Ms. Fran McIntyre fantastic singing. “Sunny” was a romantic song which was made very special by the tone of her voice. She was singing with her deep soft voice which sounded very passionate. The rhythm of this song was very lively and energetic. During a short intersession, Dick Katz (pianist) and Bob Cunningham (bassist) delighted us with their soft Jazz performance and profound sound. I was especially taken by the bass player.In the tune, “Who Threw the Whiskey in the Well”, Ms. McIntyre had the accompaniment of the background singers: Patricia Cam, Ralph Revello, Arnold J. Smith and LD Frazier. They were very comical, entertaining and vivacious. During this performance it was very appealing to hear the Tambourine. I was amazed that such a small instrument can make the music so alive. I was pleased to see and appreciate each single musician during a solo performance. The Flute and Baritone player took over with her smooth and lasting performance. I was impressed by her stamina and the way she played her instruments. The Soprano and Alto Saxophone player was as intense and dynamic as the trumpet and Flugelhorn player.During the “Midnight at the Oasis” the music was very romantic. The drummer contributed to this effect by playing soft Jazz, often using the brushes instead of the sticks to strike the drums. One of the percussion instruments had a unique sound that resembled an exotic bird. The sound generated by the flute player was fantastic. There were interesting exchanges between Ms. McIntyre and the pianist. Their mutual musical connection was apparent during this performance. “Hold on I’m Coming” was a very strong and powerful song. The rhythm of the music and the intense voice of Ms. McIntyre impressed me the most. The beats of this song were incredible. “Solitude” by Duke Ellington was a soft song played mostly by the pianist. He was later joined by the Baritone player and the Saxophone player. These strong instruments added to the texture of the music. However, I felt that the pianist enriched the song when he took over.
“Rock Me Daddy” did indeed rock the audience. Everyone cheered by the provocative lyrics and the subjective sounds. It was entertaining the way Ms. McIntyre incited the audience by putting emphasis on certain words in the lyrics. I thoroughly enjoyed this performance and was especially moved by her use of a sign language interpreter. Although I’m perfectly capable of hearing there were times when I watched the interpreter putting feelings to the lyrics. Ms. McIntyre is a talented and splendid performer.

This is a winner!
This CD is a winner! It puts a new spin on familiar and not so familiar tunes. This Cd really swings and then gives you time to have time to get mellow. A great mix of tunes.
