Nouveau Stride at Accurate Records
Special event! Accurate Records regulars are accustomed to some pretty rowdy events, but this will be a listening set featuring our new (used) grand piano and three great performers.
(Fear not: after the music, there will be socializing - and you can BYO drinks and partake throughout!)
Lyricist/jazz vocalist Lorraine Feather has written lyrics for film, television, and numerous jazz artists albums. Lorraine is a seven-time Emmy nominee as a songwriter; with longtime collaborator Eddie Arkin, she created the title song for Warren Beattys 2016 film Rules Dont Apply. Lorraine has been producing albums of original material for herself as an artist for 20 years, to significant critical acclaim. Her last four releases received a total of five Grammy nominations. Lorraine was born in New York, the daughter of jazz writer Leonard Feather and god-daughter of Billie Holiday.
Jazz phenomenon Stephanie Trick [www.stephanietrick.com] has forged a brilliant career playing stride piano, a style which developed in the 1920s and 30s. Stride is not only technically demanding but incredibly exciting to watch. Stephanie learned to play classic stride pieces by James P. Johnson, Fats Waller, and Willie The Lion Smith by ear when she was still in high school. She tours extensively, and has recorded ten albums. Stephanie now divides her time between homes in her native St. Louis, and Milan, touring as a solo artist and with her pianist husband Paolo Alderighi
Lorraine and Stephanie met seven years ago. A mutual friend who knew that Lorraine had written lyrics to stride pieces, told her about the young piano sensation. She got in touch with Stephanie; they swapped albums, met in Los Angeles, and decided to create Nouveau Stride [www.nouveaustride.com] and put together an album of newly-lyricized stride pieces, Fourteen.
"[Lorraine Feather is] easily one of the most creative lyricists of her generation Feathers skills as an actress and her infectious, versatile voice add to her appeal."
Ken Dryden,All Music Guide
"[Stephanie Trick is] One of the nicest gifts to arrive on the jazz piano scene in recent times, and we couldnt be more delighted to welcome her."
