Album Description

Pairings: playful and passionate with bluesy undertones. An intoxicating voice paired with Canada's finest jazz musicians, including David Restivo, George Koller, Reg Schwager, and more. This is the second recording from the award-winning Fritzen, a Whitehorse- based artist who came up with an adventurous concept for the album. As the title suggests, every song features a pairing of Fawn’s voice with one particular instrument. The couplings on different tunes include acoustic bass, guitar, piano, prepared piano, percussion, and a saxophone section, resulting in a rich variety of tones and musical moods. The instrumental formatting means the arrangements are generally on the sparse side, but there is a large dynamic range to Pairings. The settings place a clear spotlight on the vocals, and Fritzen’s warm, strong, and clear voice is certainly up to the task. "The Yukon jazz singer makes the minimalism work on her second album 'Pairings'. By limiting herself to very few backing players - and in most cases, just a single supporting musician - she creates a lot of open room for her sublime singing and her collaborators' superb sense of swing. I'd like to suggest one more pairing...all jazz lovers' ears and this wonderful recording." — Mark Rheaume, CBC Radio

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
