The first time I heard Nancy and Steve together, I felt as though electricity had gone through me. The interplay of Nancy's warm and knowing voice and Steve's perfectly placed chords is, to me, the epitome of that most intimate of jazz settings: the singer and the accompanist. It's so much fun to bring this music to people, first on "Jazz Beat" and now on this second "Dream Lands" session. If it's your first time hearing Nancy and Steve, congratulations! I know it won't be your last...

When Nancy and Steve asked me to write some notes for this CD I decided to dispense with the superlatives and accolades. You only have to listen to a couple of bars to know how superb they are.

What I wanted to share was the fun we have in the studio. Because the playlist features mostly ballads and songs of loss, you might assume that these sessions are solumn occasions punctuated with tears and angst. Not so, Steve and Nancy's irreverent sense of humour is impossible to suppress. As they sift through the stacks of music they bring along it's like a children's birthday party - each new tune a present they can't wait to open. I feel so lucky to be invited to the party. I call it my dream gig. Great musicians, great friends and music from the heart. Can't wait till the next session.
