2015 release. Since the beginning of jazz and pop music artists have presented their own versions of high profile classic and obscure hidden treasures. Chicago pianist/arranger Marshall Vente joins forces with Chicago vocalist/producer Joanie Pallatto in a collection of 15 songs that includes two originals. Pallatto's exquisite vocals are wrapped in the lush and creative arrangements of pianist Vente as he strokes the keys of the Baldwin SD-10 9' concert grand creating his own personal orchestra. No style of music is left alone as the CD opens with Lennon & McCartney's 'Help!' And yes, The Beatles do swing! Traces of urban soul sizzle with "People Make The World Go Round." Pallatto and Vente pay respect to composer Jimmy Webb with their ethereal version of 'By The Time I Get To Phoenix.' These are just 3 of the 15 songs on this album!
