ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Jazz singer Annie Sellick has it all-sensational voice, commanding stage presence, striking appearance and infectious enthusiasm. She has won a large, devoted following and earned rave reviews, winning numerous "Best Jazz Artist" awards in the Nashville media. And Sellick's latest album, No Greater Thrill, is sure to bring her national acclaim. Featuring the organ work of world-renowned jazz artist Joey DeFrancesco, No Greater Thrill is irrefutable evidence that Sellick has entered the big leagues.

"I felt a connection with the jazz B-3 organ," says Sellick, "after playing around Nashville with Moe Denham." She met DeFrancesco in Anaheim, Calif., at the January 2002 NAMM show, and a friendship began. They had a common friend in Denham, whose CD, Little Blue Volkswagen, DeFrancesco produced. DeFrancesco became a fan of Sellick's work and agreed to come to Nashville to record. Guitarist Pat Bergeson and drummer Jim White, both widely respected players, rounded out the group.

Sellick's jazz journey began auspiciously when she sat in with guitarist Roland Gresham's group at a club near the college she attended. After her performance, the crowd rose to their feet cheering, and it was clear she had found her calling. "It shocked me, the response, and I think it shocked Roland too. Maybe that's why he kept me." She sang with Gresham's trio for four years and developed a sizable following. She honed her skills under the tutelage of Lori Mechem and Roger Spencer at the Nashville Jazz Workshop. Sellick has been a mainstay at Nashville's main jazz venues, F. Scott's & Café 123, and was featured in a popular weekly series, "Sellick & Sushi," at Virago.

Sellick's first record, Stardust on My Sleeve, was a striking debut that highlighted her interpretative skills, bringing vitality and urgency to classic jazz standards. The album was on the Top 10 Local Artists list at Tower Records for many months, and even remained in the Tower's storewide Top 25 for several weeks, keeping pace with international releases by top-selling artists. She has been profiled in every major Nashville paper, and gave a celebrated sold-out performance backed by the Nashville Symphony.

With the release of No Greater Thrill, it's clear that Annie Sellick's future is as bright as her smile. It's only a matter of time before the national jazz radar gets wind of this enchanting, compelling performer.

Annie just performed at the Blue Wisp for our New Years party.As superb as this album is (and it is superb) you MUST see her perform live ! She owned the audience from the first note to the last.

Annie takes ownership of the lyrics... She lives them!
Great choice of songs, Fresh arrangements. The musicians really swing. The instrumentation and background vocals give this CD a SASSY feel.

Brings back lots of memories
I had the privilege of seeing Annie Sellick perform live in Birmingham, AL several years ago, with Moe Denham on the organ. This CD brought back wonderful memories of that evening, and reminded me what a delightful and entertaining performer this woman is. "It Ain't Necessarily So" is especially infectious... one of those interpretations you'll remember forever.
