Meet Me in The Morning (2015)
Trombonist and vocalist Emily Asher knows how to throw a party and her third release, Meet Me in the Morning contains all the makings for such a shindig: boisterous, New Orleans-flavored jazz; a men’s glee club vocal; energetic tambourine; good advice; danceable tempos; tinges of gospel; a touch of country; a snappy vocal duet; an effortlessly swinging rhythm section; and an air of wistfulness. It’s music that’s not easily categorized, but it’s definitely evocative of a certain era, a time when music was made for dancing and when the listening public valued tuneful melodies, imaginative lyrics, skilled musicians and distinctive singers. This is timeless music and the members of Garden Party treat it with respect, as a living, breathing art form and not as a museum piece. -From liner notes by Ricky Riccardi
