Folk/Americana - Released May 18, 2018 | Microcultures

As if to complete his triptych that started with Future Standards and Further Standards, Howe Gelb now brings us Gathered. This time, the sensual vocals of Lonna Kelly have been replaced by four other musicians. Firstly, on Not The End Of The World Gelb’s husky vocals are accompanied by Godard’s muse Anna Karina, who made her comeback in 2017. Gelb’s daughter Talula then features on the classy Moon River (Breakfast at Tiffany’s) by Henry Mancini and Johnny Mercer, with its flawless piano and vocals. The Danish rocker Kira Skov (Kira and The Kindred Spirits) turns her rocker roots on their head on the elegant Presumptuous and finally Gelb is joined in a duet with Pieta Brown in the title-track Gathered with its mellow folk and acoustic guitar. Through his covers and original pieces, the Prince of Tucson shows us his personal connection with singing. The hushed atmosphere of a jazz club alternates with simplistic, melancholic ballads in this international effort between Paris, Spain, Dublin and Tucson. © Charlotte Saintoin/Qobuz
