TANNER TIME, a new c.d. featuring Chicago vocalist, trumpeter and composer
Jeannie Tanner – RELEASE DATE July 10, 2007
On July 10, Tanner Time Records will release Jeannie Tanner’s new c.d. TANNER TIME. The album highlights Ms. Tanner’s original music, along with her arrangements of I Got Rhythm, Bernie''s Tune, At Last, Sting''s If I Ever Lose My Faith and B.B. King’s Rock Me Baby.
TANNER TIME features: Jeannie Tanner (vocals/trumpet), Lisa McQueen (piano), Carol Rand (upright bass) and Darlene Dufay (drums); with special guests Neal Alger (guitar) and Michael Hesiak (tenor sax).
TANNER TIME is the follow-up to Ms. Tanner’s most recent release, Those That Lie in Between (Darwin Records, 2005), and was recorded April 28th and 29th, 2007 at Steve Yates Recording in Morton Grove, Illinois. The c.d. was recorded with a “live feel” as the ensemble recorded 15 songs in 14 hours (over a 2-day period). When listening to TANNER TIME, one definitely gets the feeling that you are at one of Ms. Tanner’s shows, where on stage, she can “swing it and she can bring it…” (LA Review).
“Jeannie''s ensemble was able to cut the majority of the compositions on TANNER TIME in one or two takes. This is a testament to the professionalism and musical intuitiveness of Jeannie''s working band and to the focused leadership and contagious musicality of Jeannie herself." Neal Alger (Guest Artist on TANNER TIME / Guitarist for Blue Note Recording Artist Patricia Barber)
Ms. Tanner is a fabulous live performer and her audiences love the fact that she can swing it, and she can bring it… Both as a vocalist and a trumpet player, she entertains her fans with her original music – but she can just as easily channel Miles, Ella or a sizzling version of “At Last,” ala Etta James.
She writes both vocal and instrumental songs with a sound that is uniquely her own.
"Her music is sexy and well-written; her voice is beautiful and pure; and her trumpet stylings are smooth and melodic. Her star is definitely on the rise."
Joseph Campo, Film Director / Reconstellation (L.A.)
"The thing I enjoy most about recording with Jeannie is that her music embraces both classic and contemporary feels with equal purity. Her songs feel effortless, and her voice rides on whichever musical wave she chooses. I don''t find myself trying to place her in any specific genre, and as a drummer and fellow composer that is quite refreshing. I think Jeannie is one of the most sincere and talented artists to emerge from the Chicago music community." Matt Walker, Drummer/Smashing Pumpkins, Filter & Billy Corgan
“Jeannie Tanner is an amazing vocalist, composer and instrumentalist. She is so successful in each category and when you roll all three into one artist, she is an absolute powerhouse. Her original songs are soulful and sultry and her vocal style ranges from airy and light, to searing blues ...from Ella to Etta to Sade to Nora Jones -- Jeannie does it all.”
Lisa McQueen, Musical Director/Chicago Shakespeare, The Second City, Annoyance Theater, Northlight Theater, Boom Chicago (Amsterdam) & Second City National Touring Company
“I love that Jeannie plays trumpet. You don’t see many female horn players and she has such a smooth and melodic feel to her performances. Her voice is rich and strong, yet her dynamic nuances are so warm. Jeannie is such a pleasure to listen to, whether I’m catching her live show or when I’m enjoying her c.d.s.” Elizabeth Geddes
