Your crusty chronicler is an individual who does his own thing. Still, when Examiner asked for support for their new “List” format, it was nigh impossible not to be open-minded about it. So, with the spirit of unity in mind, your rockin’ reviewer presents this series—“Track by Track” in which we review certain select CDs literally “track by track”.
This edition of the series we (ahem) examine Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter Stefani Scovolo’s new album, I Remember. Just in time for the holidays, this twelve track release, dedicated to her grandmother, Mary Alice, includes a plethora of personal pieces and a somewhat melancholy although memorable holiday hit in the making. On this disc Scovolo (acoustic piano and keyboards) is backed by an assortment of guest artists including: Stevie Blacke (strings), Louis Winfield (drums), Sam Hunter (bass), Steve Postell (guitar), Marty Rifkin (pedal steel) and Jeff Nelson (acoustic piano and keyboards).
