Produced by Hugo Dwyer and Steven Joerg
Recorded on November 13, 2005 at Systems Two Studio, Brooklyn by Hugo Dwyer.
Mixed and Mastered out back where the horse used to live.
Listen to Roy's saxophone version of "Sunny" here:
"Here's a resounding welcome back for Nathanson, whose Sotto Voce brims with a bemused exuberance and bubbles with a strange brew of spoken word, song and improvisation. Sotto Voce functions as a hip, lyrical variety show that that at turns gets boisterous with instrumental soaring (snaky sax lines, Curtis Fowlkes' trombone slithers, violinist Sam Bardfeld's klesmer-shaded phrasings) and energized by the hip-hop and doo-wop-infused vocal of Napoleon Maddox. Tunes range from Nathanson originals (the playful but poignant "By The Page" and the melodic beauty "Home") to covers like the new-grooved rendering of Bobby Hebb's 1966 soul hit "Sunny." Like Nathanson's spirited projects with the Jazz Passengers, which he and Fowlkes co-founded in 1987, Sotto Voce is jazz that stretches the art form." - Dan Ouellette
