Peter Davenport is a modern New York renaissance man whose debut album on LML Music is a simmering combination of Jobim-esque interpretations and contemporary pop stylings of standards such as Arlen and Mercer's "Come Rain or Come Shine," and Richard Rodgers' "The Sweetest Sounds". This delicate balance is struck expertly by Davenport with the ever impeccable musical direction and arrangements of Christopher Marlowe. Part jazz, part Latin, part standard and a splash of original material make this debut album shine. Davenport gets inside a lyric and gives it the life it deserves in every bend, every blue note, and every nuance. Sit back, stir that martini, and let your body sway to CLEAR DAY.
