Product Notes

Originally released as a self produced CD-R, Abaton Book Company is pleased to announce the official release of 'Light of Day', the debut CD by avant jazz vocalist Devorah Day. Although Ms. Day is little known in the current jazz scene, her stature is undeniable to those who have seen her perform or heard the underground tapes in circulation. Her fans understand that this release should be seen as the most important jazz vocal album of the decade because Day is heir apparent to the fortunes set aside by Billie Holiday, Sarah Vaughan, Nina Simone and Jeanne Lee. With her highly unorthodox line up of voice, triple saxophone, and bass, Devorah Day has constructed a multi-layered yet minimalistic statement, a subtly hued tone poem. Her phrasing has few limitations as she chases her own tale by leaps and bounds through gray skies, toward greener pastures. Light of Day has much in common with classic titles produced by ESP-Disk', the adventurous 1960s avant-garde label that released two records by Day's accompanist, Marion Brown. Here Brown, the legendary saxophonist who played on John Coltrane's Ascension, gives his most transcendental performance in many a year. This CD will be of interest to admirers of female vocalists, and to an aware jazz audience in general.
