ICYMI in LEMON WIRE: Fred Farell’s “Distant Song” is a moody exploration of romance

For 50 years, Fred Farell has made a name for himself singing jazz in traditional styles. His latest album, “Distant Song” is an example of one man using his well-tuned instrument for expressive purposes.

Farell’s career has included work as a soloist and ensemble singer. He has performed in places such as Avery Fisher Hall, the Brooklyn Academy of Music and the Museum of Modern Art. Farell’s career has been built on the strength of his ability to interpret songs and to imbue them with his heartfelt lyricism.

Farell is joined by Dave Liebman on soprano and tenor saxophones, and Richie Beirach on acoustic piano.
