ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Review
Here is the review as it appeared in the May issue of "Jersey Jazz. Joseph Lang

For 14 years, TRISH, HANS & PHIL have been making very hip sounds in Washington state, the kind of sounds that you expect to find in a place like New York City, Los Angeles or Chicago. Over the years vocalists Trish Hatley, Hans Brehmer, who also plays piano, and Phil Demaree, who also serves as the group’s bassist, have built up a book of considerable size. They have wanted to produce a recording for quite a while, and now, with the ironically titled "Greatest Hits, Volume 1" (THP Productions – No Catalog #), they have released their initial CD. Aided by John Anderson on saxophone, Ken French on drums, Alan Keith on trumpet and Bill Anthony on trombone, they have put together a most enjoyable 16-track program that mixes standards and jazz tunes with a couple of side trips to the pop song catalog. On some tracks, they harmonize effectively, while on others one of them takes over the vocal spotlight. The arrangements by Brehmer and Demaree set the tunes nicely, and are well executed by all involved. Among the tracks that particularly appealed to me were “You’d be So Nice to Come Home To,” “Rio de Janeiro Blue” “A Night in Tunisia” and Jeanine.” They close with a neat take on “Brahms Lullaby.” One thing that comes through clearly is that this is a group that has a lot of fun performing, and you will have fun listening to them.

BIO

Trish Hans & Phil have a refreshing concept – three voices, tight harmonies, and great jazz interpretations of The American Songbook. Trish, Hans and Phil are one of the most innovative and entertaining groups in the Northwest today. In addition to their unique and superb musicianship, they convey a joyous and exhilarating sense of showmanship. They bring their novel approach to the classics, from Cole Porter and the Gershwins to Lennon and McCartney. With the story-line lyrics of Hans, the sultry tones of Trish and Phil’s dry wit, this exciting group combines their soaring, swinging vocals for a sound that is truly their own.



Trish, Hans, and Phil New York City Review September 14, 2007
By David Finkle

The voices of Seattle visitors Trish, Hans, and Phil are a perfect blend. When the three harmonize, the sounds they make are enough to soothe the savage breast in just about anyone. So why at the Metropolitan Room a week or so ago did the trio open with a Vegas lounge version of "The Way You Look Tonight" (Dorothy Fields-Jerome Kern)? Maybe they wanted to establish Trish Hatley as the lead singer. She does have a clarion voice made to nail standards.

In quick time, though, they may have lulled their audience — those, that is, who didn't already know who they are — into thinking nothing special was about to happen. But before you could say "watch out," they segued into a three-part arrangement of "Tuxedo Junction" (music by Erskine Hawkins, William Johnson, and Julian Dash; lyric by Buddy Feyne), and the air was suddenly charged with promise. That promise was fulfilled with the Beatles songs to which the triumvirate gave unexpectedly fresh settings. The first they rejiggered was "Got to Get You Into My Life" (John Lennon-Paul McCartney), which turned into only an appetizer for their later "Eleanor Rigby" (also Lennon-McCartney). For that one Hans Brehmer, the group's adventurous arranger, did plenty of chord ruminating in the bass clef.

The way the three look is a significant part of their appeal. Trish is tall, striking, her long hair definitely alluring. Goateed Hans has an amusing lean face — also a quick wit, which he showed off on words added to Cole Porter's "You'd Be So Nice to Come Home To." Phil Demaree, whose roundish face ends with a lantern jaw, has a twinkle in his eye and does a fair amount of poker-facing. He doesn't say much. Twice he seconded remarks the other two made by commenting, "You're right." He was cute on the faster melody of Irving Berlin's counterpointed "You're Just in Love."

Presented by and at the Metropolitan Room,

34 W 22nd St., NYC.

Aug. 24 and 25.

Shirley Folston

A wonderful performance. I ordered the cd the next day!
We saw Trish Hans and Phil perform at the Big Fork Inn in Big Fork Montana. It was an outstanding performance, and I immediately ordered a cd. We plan to see them again when they come back in August. Shirley Folston

John Eklund

This is a marvelous CD!
This is a marvelous CD. The three voices blend beautifully and Trish has an outstanding solo voice. Some swinging arrangements, great sound recording. One of the most enjoyable CDs I've purchased in the past year. If you like vocal jazz, you'll love this. Highly recommended.

NYC Darling

Love this CD!
I had the same thing happen as Denise. I heard it on a cable music station and HAD to track down the CD. And we have good taste ha ha It's absolutely gorgeous. Trish has a one in a million voice I could listen to for hours. I hope they come out with a vol. 2!

Trish, Hans and Phil

Tight vocals, classical jazz styling of standards and contemporary compositions
Put the top down, drive in the fast lane and snap your finger to this remarkable work. These three have found the heart and soul of each piece and structured the harmonies in a tight, fresh, surprising arrangement. Vocal jazz doesn't get much better than this.

Brendon Carey

Excellent Vocals, Terrific Arrangements!
I've been hearing this group on Music Choice, and have been
very impressed with their excellent arrangements and vocal
talent. They're fresh, and the songs they've selected for their CD fit them to a "T". Highly recommended.

R C Thompson MD


Fabulous! As a close harmony singer and amateur jazz vocal arranger and recording engineer, the vocals are unusually tight for instrumentalists in my experience, and the CD is beautifully recorded and mastered. Sign me up for everything they do from here on!!!

Steve Edmonds

Greatest Hits, Vol.I
I'm really pleased that my parents shared with me their discovery of your group. The album is a great mixture of songs and styles. Your renditions of Eleanor Rigby and Rio De Janeiro Blue have fast become favorites.

Hazel Davis

The CD is great!! Beautiful harmony.
We thoroughly enjoyed this CD. We knew nothing about Trish, Hans and Phil until we heard some music from this CD on our television Music Choice channel. It was really neat to find they also live in the great Northwest.

Denise E Williams

Fantastic! Fabulous! And a must for music lovers!!!
I heard a selection from this CD on a cable music station. I immediately wanted the CD. I had to track it down & was led remarkably to CD Baby. I absolutely love the harmonies & music selections. I look forward to long drives because I can sweeten the experience with the dulcet tones of their vocal performance. Thank you for your musical acumen. It was money well-spent!!!

Harry Brummett

Most definetely not disappointed!!!
Heard on a local cable music source. Like others,I tracked it down. They are another example of "new" groups keeping jazz alive. They are tight and did justice to all of the cuts. I heartily recommend this to all lovers of jazz!!!
