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.

Listening to Farell is like stepping back in time, to mid-20th century America, when jazz and romance were popular. His soundscapes are like odes to love with a side of urbanity. With a total running time of almost one hour spread out among 10 songs, Farell’s “Distant Song” provides enough soothing sounds for listeners to lose themselves and to ponder the human condition as told through the songs the singer crafts.

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

FRED FARELL, Distant Song

Fred Farell’s deeply soulful, spiritually uplifting and simply but magnificently produced new album Distant Song celebrates the veteran jazz vocalist and lyricist’s return to the jazz world after 40 years in a unique wilderness of his own choosing.

Reconnecting like no time had passed with old friends and collaborators, jazz greats Dave Liebman (soprano and tenor sax) and Richie Beirach (piano), Farell finds fresh poignancy and purpose in emotionally compelling songs the trio penned decades ago. Thrilled to be back in their company, Farell allows his colleagues ample solo time and several lush and expansive tandem instrumentals.

Here’s hoping this trio won’t keep their distance any longer!
