该方法是美好的 - 你会从平时的爵士声乐组期望几乎什么 - 仪器也太伟大 - 一个小组合，从埃里克·亚历山大和帕特LaBarbera双男高音，既带来什么样的个人空间，并深情拐点的原子将不胜感激。游戏包括“城市梦”，“朱利安”，“文明及其不满”，“恋人他们的时间”，而“现在在我们的生活。”
A wonderful idea for a record very unique, and with a style that makes for one of the freshest jazz vocal sets we've heard in years! The tunes here are all numbers penned by saxophonist Pepper Adams a great change from overdone standards and they've got some inventive lyrics penned by Barry Wallenstein, sung with a very vivid, jazzy flourish by Alexis Cole!
The approach is wonderful – hardly what you'd expect from the usual jazz vocal set – and the instrumentation is also great too – a small combo, with twin tenors from Eric Alexander and Pat LaBarbera, both bringing in the kind of solo space and soulful inflections that Adams would have greatly appreciated. Titles include "Urban Dreams", "Julian", "Civilization & Its Discontents", "Lovers Of Their Time", and "Now In Our Lives".

I Carry Your Heart makes history as the first-ever recording of baritone sax legend Pepper Adams music set to lyrics! Velvet-voiced jazz vocalist Alexis Cole joins the Jeremy Kahn Trio with guests Pat Labarbera and Eric Alexander on a romantic spin through Adams luscious ballads with rich new lyrics from the pen of poet Barry Wallenstien. This is the seventh recording by Alexis Cole, a rising vocal star who is a recipient of a Swing Journal Gold Disc Award and has won the NY Jazzmobile and Montreux Jazz Festival vocal competitions. Produced by jazz historian Gary Carner, who will promote the CD on a 30-city tour in association with his book Joy Road: An Annotated Discography of Pepper Adams (Scarecrow Press). In New York City in September, Alexis will participate in a Pepper Adams Tribute Week that will feature multiple homage performances including a special presentation by the Village Vanguard Orchestra.
