Album release june 2019
“THU HO with the Noel Jewkes Trio Live at the Sausalito Seahorse” is now available for digital download on CDBABY! Physical albums can be purchased through the artist and at her upcoming performances.
This album materialized in a very natural and organic manner. Attracted to Thu's vocal phrasing and romantic lyricism, revered, veteran saxophonist Noel Jewkes (aka "Dr. Legato") invited her to sing with his ensemble regularly at the Sausalito Seahorse. It was quickly apparent to the sound engineer and listeners that their collective sound and musicianship embodied a rare flavor of velvety textures, harmonic opulence, and lyrical elegance that should be recorded live to best capture their creative spark and effervescent spontaneity. Experience jazz as an art of storytelling in the most vulnerable, intimate, and nuanced of ways. A heightened sense of lyricism and memorable improvisational melodies emerge through the musical interplay between these fine San Francisco/Bay Area artists.
Thu Ho - vocals, Noel Jewkes - tenor sax & flute, Chris Amberger - upright bass, Grant Levin - piano
