'Comes Love," the new release from Los Angeles-based singer Roxanne Beck and Grammy-nominated producer Bud Harner, is an eclectic collection of eleven jazz and pop covers. Drawing from her rock, country and gospel background, Beck has emerged as a genre-busting vocalist who has been called a cross between Norah Jones and Linda Ronstadt. "Comes Love" was overseen by former Verve A&R executive Harner ("Forever, for Always, for Luther") and arranged by New York piano player Jon Cowherd (Lizz Wright, Brian Blade), John Pondel (Kombo, Jazzhole) and Louis Durra. Chart-topping jazz guitarists Jeff Golub and Paul Brown guest on four cuts, with Brown and Jay Gore on the title track. Also featured on the album is a cadre of other well-known L.A. musicians, including Durra and Rodney Lee on piano, Ron Pedley on organ, Larry Antonino, Matt Bissonette and Jeff Falkner on acoustic bass, Pondel on guitar, and Dave Karasony, Henry Newmark and Harner on drums. The title track from 'Comes Love,' also the first single, has received airplay on over 30 radio stations nationally in 2008. The disk also includes soulful reworkings of classics such as "Willow Weep for Me," "All Night Long" and "Only the Lonely"; Roxanne also handles tunes by Chick Corea ("Open Your Eyes, You Can Fly"), Bobby Sharp ("Everlastin' Blues," boasting a burning solo by Golub) and Susan Tedeschi and Tommy Shannon ("In the Garden"). Fresh arrangements of the Oasis hit "Live Forever," Steely Dan's "Dirty Work" and Mindy Smith's "Come to Jesus" take the CD in an adult contemporary direction, closing with a piano-vocal version of "Amazing Grace." As with Jones and Lizz Wright, Beck's sultry Southern roots shine through the mix. An Arkansas native who moved to L.A. from New York in 2003, Beck began her career in Nashville after college, working in clubs and as a demo singer. While there, she sang back-up on the Grand Ole Opry, the Nashville Network's 'That's Country,' and was a winner of the Country Music Hall of Fame vocalist contest. An inherent love of rock, jazz and blues drew Beck to New York, where she continued to develop her unique style. She performed at clubs like the Bitter End and Chris Noth's Cutting Room, working her way up to Town Hall and even Carnegie Hall (2000 Lyric Recovery Festival). Also an actress, she performed in musical theatre and did voice work in many animated TV shows ("Doug," "Pokemon"). In 1997 she produced her first CD, "Garden of Love,' for which she wrote or co-wrote all eleven tunes. Her debut single "Baby, I Do" received airplay on regional radio stations like New York's influential WFUV. 'Cool, hip, unique' - Smoothjazz.com.
