More Than Words Can Say is Stevie Holland's most soulful, swinging and bold CD to date. Arranged and orchestrated by award winning composer Gary William Friedman, More Than Words Can Say explores classic jazz standards, songs from the 50's and 70's and some original material with exciting, innovative and haunting approaches. Stevie is backed by a string orchestra on several selections and by some of today's hottest jazz musicians led by pianists Martin Bejerano and Kris Davis.
Stevie's repertoire, phrasing and innate sense of swing have been earning respect for her as a rising star in jazz. Her previous release Restless Willow charted at radio stations across the country and was voted by listeners as one of the top 10 CDs of 2004 at KSDS FM, San Diego, CA. Other honors included being voted a Top 10 Vocal CD of 2004 by the Cape Fear Jazz Appreciation Society in NC.
