Sweet Sounds Are Softly Falling
A force of gifted jazz guitarists united recently in the U.K. as Sheryl Bailey, Deirdre Cartwright and Kathy Dyson found themselves sharing the spotlight where they played a few tribute songs for Emily. This clip, from the Spice of Life in Soho, London on October 17 2012, features one of Emily’s favorite standards, Softly As In A Morning Sunrise. If you are inspired by the song and wish to learn it, check out Mike Outram’s transcription of Emily’s arrangement located on the Downloads page. What a dream come true for me to see Deirdre, Kathy and Sheryl all together. Hopefully this will be the first of many collaborations from this super trio.
