FRED FARELL, Distant Song

Fred Farell’s deeply soulful, spiritually uplifting and simply but magnificently produced new album Distant Song celebrates the veteran jazz vocalist and lyricist’s return to the jazz world after 40 years in a unique wilderness of his own choosing.

Reconnecting like no time had passed with old friends and collaborators, jazz greats Dave Liebman (soprano and tenor sax) and Richie Beirach (piano), Farell finds fresh poignancy and purpose in emotionally compelling songs the trio penned decades ago. Thrilled to be back in their company, Farell allows his colleagues ample solo time and several lush and expansive tandem instrumentals.

Here’s hoping this trio won’t keep their distance any longer!
