Sylvia HeroldSylvia Herold, of Wake the Dead, Cats & Jammers, and Euphonia fame, has been collecting exceptional songs for more than three decades. For her latest album, The Spider and the Fly, Sylvia has compiled a selection of swing and early pop tunes that lend themselves to three-part harmony singing. The focus is on the elegant vocal arrangements, reminiscent of the Pied Pipers and the Boswell Sisters. “A treasure trove of days gone by played by musicians who know how to swing!” says Peter Kuller of Radio Adelaide, Australia. “Their style is the Andrews Sisters meet Western Swing,” says the journal Jersey Jazz. “A delight from start to finish.” The website Critical Jazz offers this praise: “Top-notch vocals bring an old school retro sound back to center stage. The entertainment value is as solid as they come.”
Ed Johnson of Novo Tempo and Jennifer Scott of the Jennifer Scott Trio join Sylvia as vocal collaborators. These superb jazz singers bring a wealth of experience as arrangers and composers to a program of lighthearted swing and mid-century pop songs. Sylvia thumps a mighty archtop guitar, Jennifer tinkles the ivories, Ed tickles the guitar strings, and Cary Black thrums the upright bass.
