Description:Swing Journal Gold Disc!

Australian-born and New York-based Nicki Parrot is a double threat: She plays the bass fabulously, and has a singing voice that shares the relaxed sexiness of Julie London and the coquettishness of Blossom Dearie. Since she's moved to New York, she has performed and/or recorded with the late guitar legend Les Paul, and pianists Rachel Z and Rossano Sportiello, among many others.

Her two earlier albums released by Venus Records (Moon River and Fly Me To The Moon were met with wild popularity and critical acclaim, both of them becoming Swing Journal Gold Disc and receiving two Jazz Disc Awards in a row.

Nicki's eagerly awaited third album is a sultry and attractive tribute to Peggy Lee and Julie London. She is againg surrounded by a hugely talented cast that includes pianist John di Martino, tenor saxophonist Harry Allen and guitarist Paul Myers as well as her sister Lisa Parrott who plays baritone and soprano sax and bass clarinet.

Highlights include the title track which displays Nicki's tremendous vocal talent, whimsical "Dark Eyes" where Nicki sings in unison with her own arco bass, and "Fever" where she substitutes the famous vocal-drum duet section by Peggy Lee with a duet with her own bass! The audiophile recording enhances the value of this wonderful CD, too. Very highly recommended!

Produced by Tetsuo Hara and Todd Barkan. Recorded at Avatar Studio in New York on December 17-19, 2009. Engineered by Katherine Miller. Mixed and mastered by Tetsuo Hara / Venus Hyper Magnum Sound Direct Mix. Swing Journal Gold Disc.
