Sultry Jazz Singer Kathy Sanborn Releases Steamy-Hot Version of Dave Grusin's Three Days of the Condor
Grusin's classic movie theme sizzles with red-hot grooves by top jazz artists
By: Kathy Sanborn
Singer/composer Sanborn chose "Three Days of the Condor" as the first single for her forthcoming album project. Sanborn says, "I wanted to contribute my own artistry to a song that is perfect by itself. Producer Matthew Shell and I are both huge fans of Dave Grusin, and we wanted to create a recording that would do justice to one of his best film compositions. We added a modern twist to the song by introducing scat vocals."
The song's sizzling grooves are performed by Hector Ruano, bass; Glenn Welman, drums and percussion; Jackie Bertone, percussion; Vahagn Stepanyan, rhodes; Marcus Mitchell, saxophone; Douglas Lira, saxophone; and MASA, guitar and strings. Sanborn provides her own trademark velvety wordless ("scat") vocalizing.
Sanborn has released eight all-original albums thus far in her busy career. Her latest album, Recollecting You, with every song penned by Sanborn herself, released in 2017 to critical acclaim. Sanborn has won an American Songwriting Award and a Clouzine International Music Award. The sultry songstress was a Zone Music Reporter (ZMR) and Hollywood Music in Media Awards nominee.
"Three Days of the Condor" is now available for purchase on iTunes and Amazon.
