Beneath is an exciting new release from Hannah Barstow, a Toronto-based pianist and vocalist with a distinct artistic voice, both as a composer and a performer. Featuring saxophonist Mike Murley, bassist Reknee Irene Harrett and drummer Keith Barstow, the album contains haunting performances of Hannah’s original songs and arrangements. The motivic melodies, intricate harmonies and intimate lyrics are reminiscent of Jobim compositions, among other jazz standards, but with a modern perspective. Hannah’s unique technique of intertwining the piano and her voice, both in her melodies and during improvisation, is a fresh sound that adds depth to the performances.
