ASHEVILLE, NC (May 1, 2013) – Crossroads is the latest CD release from Maddy Winer and Vince Lewis. The CD combines the creative talents of Vince Lewis – guitar, Rick Simerly – trombone, Todd Wright – saxophones, Tom Hildreth – bass, Bill Covington – piano, River Guerguerian – percussion and Maddy Winer – vocals. The free-flowing musical interaction translates into the energy and excitement of a live performance, as opposed to just another recording session.
“Maddy Winer has great musical instincts, a wonderful sound and best of all she knows how to read a lyric,” says legendary guitarist Mundell. “I love the way Maddy and Vince work together on this CD; I feel as if musically they were thinking as one.”
“Crossroads takes the listener on a musical journey of timeless standards representing the heart and soul of the Great American Songbook,” says Maddy. “I have always had a passion for the works of Antonio Carlos Jobim and included two of his classics that I love to sing. I also pay tribute to the contemporary works of Joni Mitchell and Van Morrison.”
The 12 tracks are some of Maddy and Vince’s favorites from their concert performances. Collectively, these standard and contemporary jazz tunes take the listener through a 66 minute journey of contemplation and emotion. While listening to the CD you truly get the sense that each performer was cueing in and responding to each other in the moment.
