This Precious Life

Leah Kline takes it down to an intimate level with nine original compositions. She sings, speaks, whispers her soulful and comical lyrics close to the microphone. Listeners are reminded of Minnie Ripperton, Jill Scott, Ricky Lee Jones, Gretchen Parlato. The soundscape is the creation of Cord Heineking. There is a neo-jazz flavor, multi-layering of bass grooves, drum beats, guitar solos and vocal harmonies which make for quite an intense listen. To catch it ALL listen with high quality headphones.

  • Leah Kline (vocals)
  • Koen Schalkwijk, Charly Zastrau -(piano, keys)
  • Cord Heineking (piano, keys, drums, guitar,backing vocals)
  • Bobby Petrov, Klaas van Donkersgoed, Bernhard Weichinger (drums)

Triple Treat

The great tenor-saxophonist Scott Hamilton, whose arrival on the scene in the mid-1970s launched the comeback of small-group swing, has recorded scores of albums in his career. However until Triple Treat, he had never been on a recording date where he was one of just two instrumentalists and part of a trio with a singer...It is obvious from the first chorus of “Easy To Love,” that this is not merely a “singer with band” recording but very much a musical democracy with close interplay between the three artists.~Scott Yanow, jazz journalist/historian

  • Scott Hamilton – tenor saxophonist
  • Francesca Tandoi – piano
  • Léah Kline – vocals

Recorded 2016 in Netherlands

The unique trio of Scott Hamilton, Léah Kline and Francesca Tandoi prove to be a very complete group filled with musical bravery and talent, giving listeners a true Treat Tripled.
Jazz Standards inspired by Anita O’day
