Water

by Rochelle House

A combination of styles. Leonard Cohen meets Billie holiday, Miles Davis and and Blossom Dearie. Strange and beautiful compositions. Lyrics that devastate one and inspire. Mixed differently than most Jazz albums.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Rochelle House was born in San Jose, California, into a large, musical family. Her father taught her the country songs that he had learned during his youth, while her mother played Miles Davis, Barbara Streisand, and Dave Brubeck records continuously. As a youngster, Rochelle studied a bit of piano. She then played the flute in school band until she was forced to march in parades. In the early ’80s, Rochelle relocated from northern California to Huntington Beach, where she studied studio singing, music theory, and recording at Golden West College.

After taking twenty years away from music to focus on raising four wild and creative young artists of her own, Rochelle returned to jazz. In 2006, she introduced her music to the world on her debut recording entitled “Dreams of Love.” A collaboration with pianist Marc Seales, as well as Portland jazz greats Gary Hobbs and Dave Captein, her first cd received rave reviews and earned her a nomination for Earshot Vocalist of the Year.
Rochelle’s next cd titled “Water,” is scheduled for release in the winter of 2008. This second collaboration with Marc Seales features Seattle jazz musicians D’Vonne Lewis, Evan Flory-Barnes, and Paul Rucker, as well as Cuong Vu. Rochelle’s own compositions enjoy nearly half of this cd’s minutes and the outcome awaits your listening pleasure.

Wow, what vocals, would love to feature your music during one of our Tuesday Night Jazz sets. True raw talent, love it!

Staying close to the heart
Rochelle's second CD has all the wonderful qualities I loved in her first CD: unaffected emotional expression, a unique style, and an unusual collection of songs. Nothing is over-produced, there's no showing off, and there's no cliched singing. "Water" is the antidote to modern big business slick.
