Under the Bones of the Great Blue Whale

Sarah Brooks and Graceful Soul

¬†Recorded live, “under the bones” at New Bedford’s Whaling Museum, our latest release showcases vocalist Sarah Brooks and Graceful Soul in a live concert setting from December of 2006. “Graceful Soul” consists of guitarists Jim Robitaille and Bob Schlink, saxophonist Marcus Monteiro and a rock-steady rhythm section of Bill Miele on bass and drummer Ken Hadley. This CD has captured what happens when a soulful vocalist is united with a group of seasoned musicians, with free rein granted. The result; A powerful live performance captured for all to enjoy. Eleven tracks, including Sam Cooke’s “Bring it on Home to Me,” and Lennon & McCartney’s “You Can’t do That” are performed to perfection. Two versions of “Amazing Grace” are also included; One, a vocal version recorded as part of this performance, and the other, a bonus instrumental version, recorded ten-years earlier to the date, which featured a duet of saxophonists Al Oliveira and Dino Govoni. A very dynamic CD that’s well worth a listen.
