The glamour of yesterday returns to today’s jazz music with Sultry Night, the steamy new release by American jazz singer and composer Kathy Sanborn. Sanborn’s sizzling album has a film noir inspiration, where passion and sensuality rule the day.

Sultry Night opens with the smoky and seductive title track, evocative of the age of film noir detectives Sam Spade and Philip Marlowe. The album continues with songs honoring movie icon Cary Grant and jazz vocal legend Anita O’Day, both performers reaching their heyday in the age of film noir, the 1940s and ‘50s.

The album features both ballads and upbeat songs, performed in Sanborn’s inimitable smooth and sultry style. The singer composed all of the album‘s nine songs. In a reverential turn, Sanborn penned the song, “Angels Cry,” in honor of the children who lost their lives in the Sandy Hook school tragedy.

According to JazzTimes: “Romance is always in the air as far as Kathy Sanborn is concerned, and her songs are reflections of those emotions which take flight when overpowered by love.”

Sanborn adds, “Sultry Night reflects a world of steamy romance and unbridled sensuality - where love is always on one’s mind.”

Based in northern California, the velvet-voiced jazz songstress and composer is of Nicaraguan descent. Bilingual and cosmopolitan, the exotic Sanborn combines sultry vocals with artistic originality.

Spain’s NoSoloSmoothJazz.com says: “Kathy Sanborn is one of the most original vocalists in the American musical landscape.”

Besides composing, arranging, and producing the Sultry Night album, Sanborn provides the vocal and piano artistry. Trumpeter Wayne Ricci complements the album with full-bodied, film noir performances.

Sultry Night follows Sanborn’s critically acclaimed albums, Six Degrees of Cool and Blues for Breakfast. Both albums reached Amazon’s bestselling MP3 Vocal Jazz charts. The MP3 version of Sultry Night recently reached Amazon’s bestseller list for Vocal Jazz.
