Hey Suburbia Records

With Nancy Wilson & George Shearing's "The Swingin's Mutual," as a model, Washington, DC-based vocalist Darden Purcell and co-producer, arranger, guitarist & husband Shawn Purcell, envisioned a modern take on that quintessential 1960s sound for her third recording as a leader. Enlisting the dynamic New York vibraphonist Joe Locke, along with pianist Todd Simon, Jeff Reed on bass and drummer Todd Harrison, her sextet tackles the virtuosic soli passages of Shawn's arrangement of "Willow Weep for Me." Locke's haunting introduction sets up the poignant reading of "You've Changed," and the band swings hard behind Darden's rapid-fire, Annie Ross-inspired lyrics on "Chatterbox."
