The musical chemistry between vocalist Stacey and Alan Schulman is energetic and contagious. Their latest, AS IS is a forum for their engaging blend of voice, guitar and song. The simplicity of singer and guitarist provides a clarity for the quality of sound to shine through. The set includes original compositions, alongside those of Duke Ellington, Janis Ian, Stevie Wonder, Dizzy Gillespie and Barry Manilow. There’s also a fantastic medley of George Gershwin, Burt Bacharach and Carole King tunes featuring harmonica legend Gregoire Maret. Drummer Marcus Baylor, saxophonist David Binney, percussionist Alejandro Lucini and tabla player Navin Girishankar, also guest on various tracks. The emotional range and depth of this effort makes it a joyous musical journey.
