Vocalist Jackie Allen's 'Love Is Blue' Now Available on A440 Music Group

SOURCE: Published: 2004-06-09
Love is Blue is Jackie Allen's follow-up recording to her critically acclaimed A440 Music Group debut The Men In My Life and further captures the vibe and mood which only Jackie Allen is capable of evoking. For this project, Allen has chosen to focus on the darker side of that most powerful of human relations, love. Hence the project's title, Love Is Blue, an evocative statement that implies as many yearnings and questions as love itself. An appropriate proclamation for a collection of songs that convey a less-than-perfect view of relationships, which even the most intensely in-love amongst us can nevertheless relate to. Her quietly beautiful obsession with life, love and passion blossoms into a full musical expression from the pensive opening track and holds one's attention throughout the duration of the recording.

This project once again features Jackie's touring ensemble in an all acoustic setting. With John Moulder - guitars, Laurence Hobgood - piano, Rob Mathes - Rhodes, organ, keyboards, Hans Sturm - acoustic bass, Dane Richeson - marimba, drums and percussion and Frank Glover - clarinet. The project was arranged and produced by Rob Mathes (Tony Bennett, Eliane Elias, Rod Stewart, Carly Simon, et al.) and mastered by Greg Calbi.
