Album Description

According to Grammy Award winner Kabir Sehgal, Recollecting You is a romantic tour de force that I defy you to pause once you start listening to it. The songs cover a range of romantic sensations, like waiting breathlessly for a lover to arrive for a rendezvous, getting swept up in the heightened sensations of a new affair, feeling the void of a lover lost, and finding a path back to love in the aftermath, yet it also touches on the love born of family and friendship. Another Sultry Night is quintessential Kathy Sanborn: sensuality as a musical expression. The artist describes the setting as a hot, humid Southern evening with the anticipation of a night of passion hanging in the air. Falling is an achingly beautiful meditation on losing oneself to a romantic fantasy and the possibility of it ever becoming real. Kissed (Shoobop Shoobop), with its upbeat tempo and melody, is an expression of Sanborn's own positive outlook and faith in our ability to carry on no matter what comes our way. The title track is a celebratory musical homage to the past and to its remembrance that was inspired by the experience of a cherished friend of the artist who lost the love of her life. The theme of Heart Don't Tell is the sensual energy of an unrequited, hidden attraction and the risk of its discovery, and Reflections in the Rain conjures up the emotional paradox of a broken-hearted New Yorker emotionally isolated in a teeming city of millions. The Boys Are Back Again is a paean to the gift of absent, beloved family members joyously returned to the fold. Always You is about the phenomenon of love hiding in plain sight until finally recognized and embraced, and Guiding Light is a grateful acknowledgment of a person or spiritual force that can be leaned on and trusted to shepherd us through the vicissitudes of life. The final track, Recollecting You (Snowfall Version), explores love as the fundamental and immortal interplay of two connected souls.

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!
