DESCRIPTION: Dennis Day’s All Things in Time offers an invigorating global musical foray, fusing jazz, blues, be-bop, and ballads from the Great American Song Book into a timeless vocal/instrumental classic interpreted by a world-class ensemble. This is seasoned jazz that touches the listener’s full emotional range. Rhythmically and lyrically, Dennis Day’s voice exudes unusual warmth and intimacy, leaving his own indelible stamp and evoking repeated listening. Contemporized for the current millennium, All Things in Time is a smooth, driven album that unabashedly demonstrates why the human voice is still first among jazz instruments and why ensemble jazz remains immensely appealing. Author and jazz critic Herb Boyd writes, “When a vocalist is confident enough to record songs so strongly associated with icons of the genre, like Joe Williams, Nat King Cole, Johnny Hartman and Sammy Davis Jr., you question the bravado and wait to listen to the result of such audacity….What stands out most about this Harlem-based singer is his versatility. Day’s pleasant baritone, with dollops of second-tenor silkiness is as warm and inviting on ballads as it is bouncy and exciting on the up-tempo tunes.” The listener traverses Brazil, tasting its musical delights, then moves on to an original jazz lullaby inspired by the African continent, and then to the Mississippi Delta, London, and those evergreens of Tin Pan Alley.
