You Don't Know Me by Faith Gibson

"a sound that sends shivers up peoples spines." "Velvet" 'sensual" "bluesy" these are some of the adjectives used in the effort to describe Faith Gibson's incomparable voice. With a wide range of vocal influences from Ella Fitzgerald and Peggy Lee to Shirley Horn and Patricia Barber Faith Gibson captivates audiences with her unique natural vocal artistry an innate sense of swing and her love for the song.

This is the CD to play on those romantic evenings for two by candlelight or alone after a hectic day at the office. Relax sink in swing along and let yourself be taken away by Faith and the boys in the band: pianist Marcus Schinkel whose excursions range from lyrically romantic to explosively rhythmic the bluesy the CD contains new takes on pop songs such as "Undun" by the Guess Who Dave Guard's 'scotch and Soda" Van Morrison's "Moondance" and an homage to Ray Charles with the title song "You Don't Know Me". There are two rarely recorded Harold Arlen numbers "Don't Like Goodbyes' and an airy version of "Any Place I Hang My Hat is Home" and Gibson's own composition the humorous yet poignant "Alley Cat Love Song". The album closes with Gibson and Weber on acoustic guitar rendering a hushed unembellished "Round Midnight" that will break your heart before ending with the subtlest ray of hope.
