ALEXANDRA JACKSON releases “Quiet Nights, Quiet Stars” (Corcovado)
featuring MILES DAVIS with ANTONIO CARLOS JOBIM & IVAN LINS
“Quiet Nights” is the centerpiece of the landmark “Alexandra Jackson: Legacy & Alchemy” music album.
The track features the trumpet of the late Miles Davis and appearances of living legends: Ivan Lins, Robertinho Silva and track Producer Arranger Larry Williams. The track is illustrative of what the iconic Brazilian songwriter/singer Lins refers to as “Total Music ... a blend of jazz, Brazilian, ethnic musics, instrumental, sung, completely modern.”
The Portuguese version (“Corcovado”) features the voice of its composer Antonio Carlos Jobim himself.
“Quiet Nights” is the JAZZIZ “song of the day," and the “Corcovado” version is featured in the JAZZIZ Magazine Fall Edition, its September and October online editions, and its Fall JOD sampler.
In support, the Legacy and Alchemy label releases the video “Alexandra Jackson: Quiet Nights … Live at Blue Note Rio.”
The track’s release follows the successes of “Brazilica” featuring Larry Dunn, Darryl Jones and Maestro Charles Floyd with The Bossa Nova Noites Orquestra, “All One” featuring Al Jarreau with Larry Williams & Oscar Castro-Neves, and “Stage” featuring Larry Dunn and Al McKay.
