Montreux Sessions

Some years back, I applied for the Shure Montreux Jazz Voice Competition, as a part of the Montreux Jazz Festival. In order to submit recordings, we had to arrange two (2) songs, one of which had a jazz standard from a predetermined list, the other any song of our choice. I applied twice. Even though I never placed, at least I came out with some fabulous recordings of brand new arrangements, not to mention I had a blast playing with everyone involved!

So here are my submissions, in order of the year:
