The Sunday Jazz Brunch Presents

Tierney Sutton

Air Date: 1/15/2023 on 90.5 WICN 8am-12pm ET

I knew something was different when I first listened to Tierney Sutton's new CD Paris Sessions 2. I didn't hear Christian Jacob on the keyboard, which would be as-per-usual. Instead, it is mostly duets, with Hubert Laws subtly in the mix. 

And what duets they are! So very intimate. So very gentle. Ms. Sutton has a clear, open sound, airy and delicate but strong. She pairs perfectly with her husband, Serge Merlaud.

Wait, did you say her husband? Yes, Serge Merlaud on guitar, her husband. That just might explain a few things, such as love songs like I Knew I Loved You and Beautiful Love, which take on a new meaning with this knowledge. 

I have been playing this album for several months now, and there are no indifferent tracks; they are all beautiful and sublime. A bonus is the number of Brazilian tracks, like Zingaro, Triste, and Doralice. You'll hear a track from the new CD in hours two and three of Sunday's show. In the first hour we have a track from her 2004 release Dancing in the Dark.

Thank you to Tierney Sutton and Serge Merlaud for giving us this delightful jazz celebration of their love.
