Let's Get Lost Let’s Get Lost

Dawn Lambeth brings her lilting effervescent style to this new collection of jazz standards and oft-overlooked gems. She is joined by an exceptional ensemble of West Coast musicians, and their collective good humor and love of 30's style small group swing is readily apparent here. Recorded March 2007, released November 2007.

cdcover1x1 (19K) Midnight Blue The 1930s and '40s was a period of refined songwriting and the first flowering of the soloist‘s art in jazz, and this recording is a collection of songs and musicians that represent the best qualities of that era. The composers represented here, Duke Ellington, Johnny Mercer, Rodgers & Hart, the Gershwins and others of lesser fame, define the phrase “Great American Songbook.” Dawn is accompanied by two musical aggregations, one a conventional swing septet, the other a smaller group reminiscent of the “ gypsy swing” collaborations between guitarist Django Reinhardt and American musicians in the late ‘30s. The result is a perfect blend between singer and accompaniment. Released July 2004.
