Parrott's Debut Album for Venus!

Australian-born and New York-based Nicki Parrot is a double threat: She can play the bass very competently, and has a singing voice that shares the relaxed sexiness of Julie London and the coquettishness of Blossom Dearie. She has performed and recorded with the legendary guitarist Les Paul, pianist Rachel Z and her sister Lisa Parrott.

Venus' producer Tetsuo Hara got to know Parrott when he recorded the Rachel Z band which included her. For this auspicious label debut release, Parrott was teamed with wonderful musicians that include John di Martino, a wonderful pianist and arranger who has recorded several times for Venus. Paul Myers' guitar work is exemplary, and Harry Allen contributes with tasteful solos and obligatos.

As Jay Leonhart often says, many people believe it's impossible to play the jazz bass and sing at the same time. But Parrott, together with Kristin Korb on the West Coast, proves them wrong. This is a very enjoyable, straight ahead jazz album with great singing and strong performances throughout.

"She doesn't showboat as a singer, opting to glide gently around the core of each melody, with a light, swinging style that proves highly effective." -Ken Dryden, allmusic.com

Parrott's Second Album Features Powerful Bass and Sultry Vocals!

Australian-born and New York-based Nicki Parrot is a double threat: She can play the bass very competently, and has a singing voice that shares the relaxed sexiness of Julie London and the coquettishness of Blossom Dearie. She has performed and/or recorded with the legendary guitarist Les Paul, pianist Rachel Z and her sister Lisa Parrott.

Following her smash hit Venus debut album Moon River, her eagerly awaited second album, Fly Me To The Moon, finally arrived. Her bass playing is more powerful and emotive, and her singing gained on the sultry quotient. Just listen to the very sexy "Do It Again."

Nicki surrounded herself with wonderful musicians again. John di Martino, Billy Drummond and Harry Allen -- familiar faces from the previous album -- are joined by Nicki's sister Lisa, who plays baritone and soprano saxophones, and guitarist Mark Sganga. The audiophile recording enhances the value of this wonderful release. Highly recommended!
