Michael Mueller Wow. What an incredible find this is.

That voice is unlike anything I've heard paired to this kind of music; jazz-inflected folk that reminds me of a collaboration between Joni Mitchell and Tim Buckley circa Blue Afternoon, with both in particularly good moods.

The lyrics and compositions are the equal of the voice, though it takes some considerable effort to look past its singular power. Her vibrato is as perfect as any singer I've ever heard.

A bona-fide lost classic. Essential listening. Favorite track: Cumberland Passing.

about

Beverly Glenn-Copeland debut is a folky jazz record that stands out for Beverly’s sublime high vocals. The 11 tracks where recorded with an all-star band consisting of Dough Bush, Don Thompson, Terry Clark, Lenny Breau, Jeremy Steig and Doug Riley. The latter also produced the record. Years later he would release ‘Keyboard Fantasies (1986)’ which is a mixture of digital new age and early expirimental Detroit techno. It shows the versatility of his very underrated talent. About this new release he says the following:

“In 1970 when I wrote and recorded these songs, I could not have imagined that forty-seven years later this work would have another life, another audience. But here you are. Thank you for buying this album. Many of the extraordinary musicians that played on this album are no longer in this space/time. So I thank you on their behalf as well.”

Beverly Glenn-Copeland New Brunswick

Born into a family all of whom were very musical, essentially studied the classical piano repertoire from ‘cradlehood,’ listening to his father playing the piano four to five hours a day. He went on to study classical music and then after a few years of concertizing he suddenly felt called to write music that would weave all the different musical cultures he had come to love. ... more
