Just the Beginning by Daria

Daria is a California based voaclist and is a true jazz performer in every sense of the word. Although a very short CD, 26 minutes, Daria presents her unique vocal style in stars. This young lady commands the attention of her audience. Certainly no "background" music here.

The group includes outstanding performances by Marsha Miget, flute/sax; Jonathan Alford, piano; Dmitri Matheny, flugelhorn; Sheldon Brown, bass clarinet and a fine rhythm section. Daria's style is unusual and compelling. Mark Murphy says "Daria.....complete musicality, bravery, intense commitment to you her listener, to give you her very best. And the voice? Just lovely, that's all." The 5 songs on this CD are: Angel Eyes, Japanese Love Affair, Childrens' Games, Daydream (ellington/strayhorn), and You Stepped Out of a Dream. I really like this album!
