Product description

Product Description

An accomplished songstress from New York, Sunny Ozell has set out to showcase her special vocal talents across a spectrum of pieces by songwriters both legendary and little-known in her debut album TAKE IT WITH ME. A classically trained vocalist, Ozell found her voice performing in New York City clubs in front of the most discerning of audiences. There she honed her sound with elements of jazz, blues, and American roots as part of the city’s tight-knit musical community. It is that moment in time with her fellow musicians in New York that Ozell captures in TAKE IT WITH ME.

Whether she's singing Randy Newman's lyrically charged “Louisiana 1927,” the rolling gospel of Pops Staples's “Move Along Train,” the old-style country of Hank Williams's “I Can't Help It If I'm Still In Love With You,” or reinventing Howard Jones's 1986 electropop chartbuster “No One Is To Blame,” Ozell finds a way to breathe her own luminous personality into the music. Ozell can also convince you the T Bone Burnett/Roy Orbison composition “Kill Zone”—a rarity tucked away on Burnett's 2008 album Tooth Of Crime—and other songs such as Julian Velard's “Family Tree,” and David Mead's “Only In The Movies” have up to now, been criminally denied their richly-deserved place in the spotlight.

The album fulfills its ambition to be no more or less than a collection of great songs. It's even something of an education in the way it pulls together pieces from different styles and different eras, by writers old and new. ""I do love the process of interpretation,"" enthuses Ozell. ""I love making something mine. I think first you have to figure out what makes the tune special and why you like it. Then you need to find out what it is that needs to stay the same and then what can you bring to it to make it yours, while leaving it untouched in all the right ways.""

She achieved this on the album's title song, a haunting Tom Waits composition in which the singer bids a nostalgic farewell to the most valuable things he, or she, has known in their lifetime. In Ozell's restrained and insightful performance, it becomes almost unbearably poignant.

Ozell’s drummer and musical director, Ethan Eubanks also produced the album. Eubanks can boast a list of musical credits, from collaborations with Teddy Thompson and Juliana Hatfield to a stint in jazzman Joe Sample's trio. He plays with Ozell at her regular gigs at Rockwood Music Hall or The Living Room on Manhattan's Lower East Side, and added a vital multitasking presence to the creation of the album.

The major players on the album have all been regular members of Ozell's band and include bassist Andy Hess, keyboardist Andrew Sherman, pedal steel guitarist Jon Graboff, and guitarist Aaron Lee Tasjan, who also lent two of his original songs to the record, the rockabilly-ish “Git Gone” and the exquisitely wistful “Number One.” The string section for the album was supplied by Chris Carmichael.

Review updated after several faulty LPs returned.

I ordered this LP (vinyl) after seeing Sunny in concert in Birmingham (UK) in May 2016 on the first date as she was excellent in the support slot for the Teddy Thompson/Kelly Jones UK tour.

Sunny deployed the band that also backed Teddy & Kelly onstage, to good effect - a tasty Americana country-tinged that showcased her fine voice, clear and confident in her classy songs and arrangements.

I can recommend Sunny's cool music - a cross between Laura Nyro, Shawn Colvin, Laura Cantrell - and many other Americana influences - and the tour, it's a treat of an evening if you like great playing, fine harmonies, and consummate songwriting.

Don't miss her live - but beware of defective Quality Control on the vinyl LP. Sadly, I returned three copies (yes, three!) - all warped, dished, pressed off centre, and noisy.

I cancelled the order ultimately, concluding that Amazon had an atrocious batch and it was not worth persisting with. I've never had to return three copies of the same LP in all my 50 years of record-buying! Fine artist let down by the industry.

Excellent service from Amazon Prime on the returns / refund - but I'm without the LP after all.

I've complained direct to Sunny and her management company, and await advice, as of Mid-May....

A lovely surprise. Fresh interpretations of classic songs, and a few I didn't expect to hear. Sunny has a real warmth and soul to her voice and manages to deliver these well-chosen songs like a true storyteller. Well worth a listen.

The choice of tracks on this album bring out very well the superb voice range of Sunny Ozell. She has long been known as a brilliant young performer around the clubs and this album is an overdue chance for a wider audience to enjoy her talents. I liked it even more than I thought I would.

I bought the album on a whim, but it has really grown on me. Sunny has a beautiful clarity to her voice that comes through on the various tracks she has recorded, whatever their musical style. A lucky purchase on my part.

I bought this album after reading Patrick Stewart interview singing the praises of this lady's talent. Of course he is married to her, but his enthusiasm for her talent was contagious. It's a gorgeous album & the artist has fab voice. More cds please.
