Striking a sublime balance of creativity, quirkiness and artistry, contemporary jazz vocalist and songwriter, Alex Baird, displays all of that and more on her debut recording. With a renowned gathering of sensitive & highly creative musicians, Alex explores vibrant reimaginings of jazz standards and iconic pop tunes like 'Bewitched, Bothered & Bewildered,' and 'Still Crazy After All These Years,' as well as stunning originals reminiscent of artists such as Norah Jones and Carol King. The album is rounded out by new performances of tunes written and recorded in the '60s by Alex's late grandmother, Peggi Griffith, an acclaimed torch singer known as the 'Seattle Darling.' With a style that sits at the forefront of contemporary vocal jazz, Alex Baird takes her place alongside the modern singers who are reinvigorating the jazz idiom.
