Album Description

Abigail Rockwell - Autumn Noir CD Release: 10.10.18 Featuring Saxophonist Harry Allen & More! Sultry tones tell the story. Cinematic jazz: a fresh blend of originals and standards
Abigail Rockwell's first album as a singer/songwriter
"This album was born from beauty and friction. It is my love letter to the east and west coasts: the craggy edges of the east, the vast expanse of the west, and all the dark alleyways in between." - AR Why Noir? That haunting sax solo line running through Taxi Driver, the distant blow of a conch and those voodoo drums from I Walked With A Zombie... shadings of light and shadow... music and images that left a stamp of recognition on me like a raised brand I couldn't get rid of. That post-war, atomic age desperation still ripples that dark lake off Highway 2. Femme fatale, Lady Fate, I never know quite what she has in store for me. All I can do is surrender and go for a ride. She drives like the night, blinded but knowing, to a destination of her own choosing. Music Noir in a post-modern world. "Her voice is a bit deeper and fuller, but her phrasing, her use of occasional melisma, and the breathy sexiness of her sound call to mind Morgana King. I mean this as high praise." - Gerry Geddes "Although many vocalists have included torch singing in their repertoire, few have made it a specialty as has Abigail Rockwell. With her breathy, smoky voice and sultry demeanor, she is most reminiscent of Julie London. What Rockwell brings to this table of torch is poetry." - Marilyn Lester Abigail comes from a family of artists. Her biography is in her work. "All I could think of was the guy with the saxophone and what he was playing. It wasn't a love song anymore, it was a dirge." - Detour, 1945 Produced by Val Lewton Booking & Inquiries: abigailrockwell.com / armusicnoir@gmail.com Publicity & Media Inquiries: Scott Thompson PR | scottthompsonpr.com / scott@scottthompsonpr.com 203.400.1818
