ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Annie Sellick's latest CD captures her live in performance at the Vic Jazz Club in Santa Monica, CA. Annie is at her extroverted best, singing a variety of standards and lesser-known tunes. She is accompanied by an all-star Los Angeles band with the great 20-year old jazz pianist Gerald Clayton, already one of the most in-demand jazz pianists in the USA; Dan Lutz on bass; and Kevin Kanner on drums. Bruce Forman adds his masterful jazz guitar to 8 of the 13 selections.

Here are some quotes from reviews of this performance:

From the L.A. Jazz Scene by Roger Crane:

"A Star in the Making: Annie Sellick at the Vic"
"Annie Sellick is very much a jazz singer, who focuses on the music, but she is also a storyteller...
She is a masterful jazz singer who is so adept at handling time that everything she sings has a deeply relaxed, swinging pulse... She quickly put smiles on the faces of her accompanying musicians. Not too many divas do that...
After now seeing Sellick perform twice I see no reason why she should not be a star."

Dale Olson, columnist:

"...a young stylist with her own unique delivery and vivid musical capacity... She knows exactly what she's doing, phrasing so genuinely that she immediately connects with the emotion of the songs and the hearts of the audience...Sellick can be as funky and Honky Tonk as the Gay Nineties Beatrice Kay or as earthy as Janice Joplin."
" No small credit goes to the remarkable musicians whose superb musicality blend perfectly with the singer's expression..."

From the L.A Times "Jazz Spotlight" review of this CD by Don Heckman:

"Sellick's buoyant singing brings to mind the question of how Janis Joplin might have sounded had she been born 40 years later and focused on jazz. But there's more than Joplin in Sellick's well-formed style, which also includes traces of Anita O'Day's roughhewn rhythms, Ruth Brown's blues and - even more - her own utterly unique musical personality... She sings everything with an ineffable, perky enthusiasm. But Sellick's most attractive quality may be the manner in which she has transformed her influences into her own, immediately identifiable style. She's a comer"

Other reviews:

The Nashville Rage:

"Sellick has all the tools to become an internationally recognized jazz star: a massive and malleable voice, a hip musical know-how steep in the classics, and a striking and seductive image."

Greg Lee, Program Director at WMOT Nashville, TN

"Ella's (Fitzgerald) playfulness, Carmen's (McRae) attitude, Betty's (Carter) instincts, and Anita's (O'Day) flair. What singer possesses such gifts yet has her own distinct sound? Annie Sellick. She touches everyone..."

I saw Annie at The West Coast Jazz Party and loved her! She's as good as Diana
Annie's voice and song selection are outstanding! Gerald Clayton's Trio is unbelieveable! His dad should be so proud! I can't wait for a DVD.

Candy Richey

This is her best yet! Reveals the real Annie that we all know with all her charm
I love the ballads and the stories she sings about in this CD: it's a true masterpiece and very orginial. Only Annie can make it sounds so fun and entertaining too!

Johnny Mercer would be proud
Annie is a true Mercer disciple ... and one of his best interpreters around. She ain't too shabby with her vocal tributes to the other great lyricists as well. Talent abounds. She's one of a kind ... very special and destined for greatness!

John Cenis

Annie Sellick Live in Los Angeles
A few years ago friends and I were lucky enough to catch an evening with Annie Sellick at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art's Friday evening Jazz series. It was here that I first heard her take on "As Long As I Live," a beautiful rendition captured here on "A Little Piece of Heaven". I was familiar with her work, having stumbled across a copy of her first recorded effort, Stardust on My Sleeve - but my two companions were unfamiliar with her. It only took a song or two before they were absolutely captivated by her brilliant phrasings, her sense of rhythm, her articulated sense of style. She made the evening hers, and we were more than glad to be a part of it. That night was magical and often returns to mind. But now I can also return to that night, via this gem of a disc, every time I give it a spin. Next best thing to live!

great
I first met the beautifull Annie live in the Netherlands and I was hooked by her performance.
Dear Annie I still got the recordings I made of this weekend for you on DVD please write to me as where I might sent them to.
She is a good performer and I truly admire her.

Fantastic!!!
This is a must-have album!! I saw Annie perform last night (brilliant) and got a chance to talk with her for a long time. Not only is she a wonderful singer, she is truly a wonderful person. This album reflects not only her talent but also her lovely personality. Truly a great singer!!!

George .A.Lee

Nothing short of fabulous a legend in her own time.
A fantastic new album from an amazing artist.Annie will go down in the history of jazz along with Billie Ertha & etta James.She adds her own feel and vocals to a great new album.

Dana Goodwin

Wonderfully Refreshing !!
A must for dinner music and relaxation. We plan to enjoy Annie's voice as we cruise down the river this summer !! I knew her as a little girl, and now am proud to know and hear her as a wonderfully talented young woman !! Thanks Annie - hope to see you when you return to Nashville.
