Elaine Lucia – Lets Live Again –

Elaine Lucia
Lets Live Again
Songflower – 2008

“Let’s Live Again” features Elaine and her five-piece ensemble in an homage to the George Shearing Quintet’s vocal LPs of the late 1950’s – early 1960’s made famous by Nancy Wilson, Nat King Cole and Dakota Staton. The rest of the eclectic tunes on this CD present her own unique interwetation of rare tunes from the era.

The piano, bass, drum trio and Elaine have been performing together in the Bay Area and beyond for over 14 years; the addition of Gerry Grosz on vibes occurred with Elaine’s release of 2006, “A Sonny Day.” Guitarist Randy Vincent has performed with Elaine for many years, and joins the group for this recording project. He also recorded with Elaine on her first jazz release, “Elaine Lucia Sings Jazz And Other Things.”

Elaine Lucia studied Voice at Eastman School of Music, and has been performing as a jazz vocalist and singer/songwriter/guitarist for many years. Her previous CD releases have enjoyed excellent reviews and airplay and Elaine is well-known by her peers and her audiences for her impeccable vocal skill and beautiful, warm sound. She swings, she croons, she draws you in with crystal clear tones and a very emotive style.
