, the steamy new jazz MP3 album from singer, pianist, and composer Kathy Sanborn
, releases July 1, 2013 through the Pacific Coast Jazz label. Sultry Night
is available for purchase through popular online outlets such as iTunes and Amazon. The CD version of Sultry Night
debuts September 3, 2013.
Sanborn’s fifth album hearkens back to the glamour days of sizzling romance in classic movies. Taking a cue from the film noirish cover photo of Sanborn in a vintage evening gown, Sultry Night
opens with the seductive title track. The music welcomes the listener into a world of steamy sensuality, where glamour is queen and romance is king.
Continuing the spotlight on the film noir era, Sultry Night
includes songs honoring jazz vocal legend Anita O’Day and popular screen actor Cary Grant. Sanborn says, “Sultry Night
reflects a world of steamy romance and unbridled sensuality - where love is always on one’s mind.”
Besides producing, composing, and arranging the Sultry Night
album, Sanborn provides the vocal and piano artistry. Sultry Night
also features the engaging performances of trumpeter Wayne Ricci
follows Sanborn’s critically acclaimed albums, Six Degrees of Cool
and Blues for Breakfast
. Both albums reached Amazon’s bestselling MP3 Vocal Jazz charts.
Music critic John Shelton Ivany of the National News Bureau says: “Kathy Sanborn is able to convey emotional truths with a sound no one else can produce—a quavering joy that works equally well over an ocean or acoustic chords of ballads. No one else sings like that.”
