Album Description

Rediscover Patsy Cline’s trailblazing spirit in “My Patsy Cline Songbook,” the first-ever, full-length jazz tribute album from vocalist Staci Griesbach. Drawing on her country roots, Griesbach’s debut album explores looking at the Nashville Songbook as another treasure trove to consider reinterpreting for jazz, much like the traditional Great American Songbook. Griesbach’s “My Patsy Cline Songbook” features an all-star line up of musicians on tracks including classics “Crazy,” “I Fall To Pieces,” “She’s Got You,” “Walkin’ After Midnight,” and “Sweet Dreams.” From jazz heavyweights Tamir Hendelman, Bob Sheppard and Bruce Forman to Nashville’s own Stuart Duncan, the album features a mix of country and jazz instrumentation designed to pay homage to the incredible lyrics and melodies in Cline’s catalog, while exploring jazz arrangements and stylistic interpretation. Self-produced by Griesbach, “My Patsy Cline Songbook” is designed to take fans on a journey through Cline’s classic catalog, written by some of Nashville's most renowned songwriters including Hank Cochran, Harlan Howard, Bob Wills, and Willie Nelson. These prolific American songwriters contributed greatly to the Nashville Sound, arguably in the same way Irving Berlin and Cole Porter contributed to the foundation of jazz standards that exist today. Similarly, Patsy Cline has shaped and influenced nearly every female country singer today, much as Ella Fitzgerald or Billie Holiday had in the jazz landscape.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
