Cat Stevens Reconstructed – Jess Abrams
I recently had the pleasure of Mastering an album entitled Cat Stevens Reconstructed which was beautifully sung and performed by US born and Edinburgh based Jazz singer Jess Abrams. I also mastered Jess’s debut album Growing Up a few years back.
The current album was recorded at The Sound Cafe by David Gray and was mixed at The Edinburgh College. It consists of a trio, including Jess on Vocal and an Acoustic Pianist and Acoustic Double Bassist.
Jess says “The music of Cat Stevens was part of the soundtrack of my childhood and has stayed with me ever since. I love the journey this music takes me on when I sing it and hope to take others on that journey too – to laugh, cry, share and experience our own meanings behind each song.”
Jess will be performing the album for 5 nights during the Edinburgh Fringe:
6,12,13,19,20 August at 7pm @ The Jazz Bar, Chambers Street (venue 57). The tickets are £8/6 and available through the Fringe Box Office in advance or on the door before the show (unless sold out via Fringe Box Office).
