Jazz vocalist Sharon Azrieli enchants us with this romantic Michel Legrand (1932–2019) songbook. Tracks include Legrand classics such as the Oscar-winning “Windmills from your Mind” and the unearthed title track “Secret Places”. Ms. Azrieli is known for her “top-drawer cabaret-jazz” singing, which “has, always, a naturalistic freshness … with balance and grace.” [Blogcritics]. Tracks in English and French.
Sharon Azrieli’s magnificent soprano has been heard to great acclaim across the globe, from New York to Tokyo, and from Tel Aviv to her native Montreal. From her debut as Juliette (Roméo et Juliette) to recent portrayals of Gioconda (La Gioconda) and Nedda (I Pagliacci), Azrieli has been deemed “utterly charming” (Sarasota Herald Tribune) and praised for her “exceedingly beautiful voice, full of feeling” (Ha’aretz).
