They say long distance relationships never work, but that’s not the case with Canadian jazz vocalist Irene Atman and global nomad Roger Frankham. After a chance meeting in a New York supper club in 2009, Roger contacted Irene five years later to discuss joining forces to create original music that pays homage to the ‘Great American Songbook’ and explores both the jazz and pop elements of that genre. With both living on different continents at the time, this would be an international collaboration. After hearing Roger’s music, Irene couldn’t wait to get into the studio. Long Distance features ten new songs with music composed by Roger and performed by Irene, who also crafted the lyrics to three of the songs. New Zealand-based singer-songwriter Bruce Brown contributed his signature sophisticated lyrics for five more of the tunes. Additional lyrics came from acclaimed performer and recording artist Lucy Desoto from Alice Springs in central Australia, and Vince & Laure-Lou Mehl, gifted musician-songwriters in Versailles, France. Joining Irene are some of North America’s finest jazz musicians, with multiple recording sessions taking place in Toronto and Los Angeles over nine months. The songs were arranged by Mark Kieswetter, Rich Eames and Grammy-winning producer Brent Fischer. Made by musicians from Canada, the US, Australia, New Zealand and France, this album is one project that can truly be described as – Long Distance!
