Sonny Sings the Selkirk
Sonny Caulfield is a a jazz-trained "crooner" and was a mainstay on Canadian television (CBC) from 1968 through 1975 as leader of a jazz trio on the popular talk show-format program "Elwood Glover's Luncheon Date". Sonny currently resides in Prince Edward Island, Canada. This is his first vocal-oriented album. The songs on the CD are all "standards" but bear the stamp of a thoroughly modern production. Recorded 'almost live' at the Delta Prince Edward Hotel In Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, Canada, Sonny's home-base, the album comprises solo vocal-piano material as well as duets and trio work, including musicians Ray Soldiuk (bass), Peter Baldwin (guitar) along with local Sonny regulars Ross Macdonald (bass), Ian Toms (guitar) and Kate Bevan-Baker (vocals & violin). From upbeat to slow and mournful, Sonny's unique playing and singing style are sure to make this collection a welcome change from the ordinary.
