will be performing at Yoshi’s on May 18 at 8 and 10pm for the CD Release Party of her new album, Music Moves
. The album was recorded at Yoshi’s last April. I attended a couple of the shows that were used for this recording so I can guarantee that you will definitely be in for a treat. Her album will be available at performances starting on May 18 and in stores nationwide on June 28.
I ran into Clairdee and her husband Ken French (who is also her pianist and music director) before the Shirley Horn concert last evening (which was excellent and I will tell you about it later!!) and they gave me the postcard that is shown above. I had the great good fortune of taking the photo used for the postcard at one of her performances last year. It will also be used for the album cover on Clairdee’s upcoming release and on her website. She and Ken had been keeping this a secret from me for awhile until everything was finished. I was totally speechless and overjoyed at the same time. It is a great photo of a songbird with a beautiful spirit. Thank you Clairdee and Ken!
