For lovers of the greatest James Bond themes- Penelope Sai Sings 007 is this jazz artists 4th album release, and what a spunky offering it is! Sexy, dramatic & seductive, this collection delivers big time.
Following the success of her previously recorded version of ‘Diamonds Are Forever’, Penelope decided to produce a full album of much loved Bond theme titles. The songs have been stripped back and changed up with a big dose of fun. ‘Goldfinger’, ‘From Russia with Love’, ‘A View To a Kill’, ‘For Your Eyes Only’, and ‘Nobody Does it Better’ are just some of the 14 tracks that have been reimagined with an accomplished trio of Australian musicians including Sean Mackenzie (piano), Brett Hirst (double bass) and Nic Cecire (drums). These guys bring their distinctive vibe to the project with a jazz club feel and a super-slick Latin spin.
Guest soloists include the sublime French jazz violinist Didier Lockwood, and virtuoso American trumpeter and leader of the Count Basie Orchestra, Scotty Barnhart. These extraordinary musicians bring impeccable flair and take the recording to the next level of cool.
Regarded American producers Al Schmitt and Gregg Field contributed to the final mixes. The resulting record sizzles. It is timeless and a pure listening pleasure as it draws us back into the fabulous world of 007.
