10 Albums You Need to Know: July 2019

by MATT MICUCCI

Singer/songwriter and musical alchemist Peter Eldridge teams up with piano legend Kenny Werner on his latest album, Somewhere. This new LP also includes a 20-piece string orchestra conducted by cellist Eugene Friesen, and a sound that pairs timeless romanticism with sophisticated modern harmony in a program of classic standards and clever originals, to serve as an antidote to the tumultuousness of current times..."We hope it offers a balm to the spirit.”

Somewhere

An Evening of Elegance 

 … of lush strings and gorgeous harmonies. 

It’s  Peter Eldridge,  his sensuous, velvet tones and deep storytelling and  Kenny Werner’s divine arrangements. 
Somewhere. It’s American elegance not heard or seen 
since  Fred Astaire donned a top hat!…  Classic, soulful ballads and stories, including songs by Peter Eldridge, 
Kenny Werner,  Ivan Lins,  Leonard Bernstein and others. 

A few words from Peter ...I  have been working on an album of beautiful ballads set for voice and full string orchestra – titled “Somewhere” – with arrangements by the inimitable Kenny Werner  (this is a project  Kenny and I have been talking about doing for about a decade) . Kenny has truly  outdone himself orchestrating these songs (his string writing is just incredible). Some tunes by me, some by Kenny, and a few well-known classics.
