Jacintha's first new album since 2007 features a fabulous selection of hits from the James Taylor catalogue including: You've Got A Friend, Sweet Baby James, Walking Man, Fire & Rain, Shower The People and several other popular choices. Jacintha's first popular vocal album represents a striking change of pace from this Singaporean audiophile favorite.
Several of the best LA-based musicians associated with James Taylor during his lengthy and stellar career appear on this album: Lee Sklar (bass), Russ Kunkel (drums), Jim Cox (keyboards & currently touring with JT), and Dean Parks (acoustic guitar & currently touring with JT). All songs are arranged by Tim Pierce (Vanessa Use Me and Vanessa When The Levee Breaks) who also plays acoustic guitar on several tracks.
The album was mixed by Michael C. Ross at Sunset Sound. A 100% analogue master was also prepared for the 180g 45rpm LP release.
"Michael C. Ross on the mixing console created the well-balanced wide open and dynamic sound of this pure analogue recording. Bernie Grundman, admired as mastering genius prepared the tapes for the transfer, and also did the vinyl cut. A real treat for the ears…" - Winfried Dulisch, Stereoplay Magazine, Germany, Audiophile CD of the Month for June 2018!
