about

Songbird in the Moonlight is vocalist Molly Ryan's solo debut album. Miss Ryan's silvery voice and lush, elegant vocal style evoke the big band singers of the 1930s and breathe new life into the timeless classics of a bygone era. Musical director/reedman Dan Levinson, pianist Mark Shane and drummer Kevin Dorn, each an established force on the swing music scene, recall the sound of the legendary Benny Goodman trio; trumpeter Jon-Erik Kellso is also featured on three tracks. "Songbird in the Moonlight" is truly the apogee of swingin' vocal jazz: gentle, subtle, yet captivating, from the first notes of "Hooray for Love" to the searing climax of "What a Little Moonlight Can Do."
