Album Notes
Recorded in the hottest month on the hottest days, this album is HOT! Sultry songs and gorgeous intrumental work. Don't miss the extra track, Summertime Take 2, where the rhythm section smokes into oblivion. If you enjoy tasty drummers this will get to you in the best way. Write to me and I'll be happy to send you lyrics to the original tunes (and maybe some explanatory notes to go along!) Also check out a cd by a band called Eye Level, that features the guitarist on this recording, Mark Copani. I find that this cd works well on a road trip or for a romantic evening or dinner party, or just to kick back with after a long day's work. Enjoy--

The following is an excerpt from a published review of Ms. Rutledge's band's performance at the Syracuse Jazz Fest: "Like her new cd, Summertime, Marcia Rutledge's June 26 set at the 2004 Syracuse Jazz Fest featured a songlist that well represented her ability to reinterpret standards such as "God Bless the Child," while making cool contributions to the jazz repertoire with original compositions such as "Dont Give Away the Store." That song--words of womanly wisdom-- entertains on every level, from concept to melody to performance, and it does so with an air of humor belying its serious subject... Marcia's choice of the bluesy "Almost" and her jazzy rendition of James Taylor's "Don't Let Me Be Lonely Tonight" as well as the Rolling Stones classic, "You Can't Always Get What You Want," proved she's an amazingly clever songstress capable of breathing new musical ideas into old chestnuts which we never dreamed could be so jubilantly 'jazzed.'"
