Fred Farrell – Distant Song 3/3O’s Notes: Vocalist Fred Farell took several years away from the jazz scene to enhance his spiritual and emotional health. He continued writing during the hiatus and emerges with an experienced trio that includes pianist Richie Beirach and highly lauded saxophonist Dave Liebman. The mood of the program is dark blue, solemn and well matched to Fred’s baritone and the accompanying Instrumentation. The music was composed by. Liebman and Beirach with Farell writing all lyrics. The integration works well culminating with “Distant Song”.
