New Retro-Blue CD

The new Retro-Blue CD, titled “Moments”  features the wonderful vocals of Kelly Delaveris and Kay Harris on blues, jazz and adult contemporary songs that place them “right in her wheelhouse” as musical artists. Every song on the album - even the three instrumentals - has a story to tell. Each captures a particular moment or series of moments in the life of someone you know, know of, or at least someone you will get to know by the end of the CD through the magic of music.

The instrumentation on the album varies; from a jazz quartet, to a seven piece rock ⁄ fusion ensemble, to a big band, to a full orchestra.

Andy Woodson - bass

Charly Cesner - vocals

Chris Young - piano and keyboards
