THE MAGIC OF HOAGY CARMICHAEL
Marie Wilson and the Kevin Hunt Trio
Independent release MWKH2002
This recording is a showcase of Hoagy Carmichael's best known classic jazz songs that include: The Nearness of You, Skylark, Georgia, Stardust and Two Sleepy People.
This recording brings together the musical crafting and style that Kevin and Marie have developed over many years of working together.
Jim McLeod, presenter of Jazztrack on ABC Classic FM writes: "Marie Wilson...has the art of the seemingly easy, simple style - so lyrical and so musical..."
"The art of the accompaniment is also a masterful thing. Pianist Kevin Hunt is a music master (to re-use a Carmichael title) - Kevin is generous, supportive yet stimulating. Just check out the duet on "Georgia"!
