I just had the opportunity to review the most recent release, 80 Years of International Friendship, by Janice Harrington, and it's a strong entry by Janice. Opening with Old Age, an apparent tribute to her 80th birthday and it shows Harrington in fine form vocally with a firm bass line by Tabbel Dierssen, cool guitar soloing by Z.z. von Schnerck and Charles de Beaulieu, Eggo Fuhrmann on piano and Lars Plogschties on drums. On BB King style, Seven Day A Week Man Blues, Harrington exhibits great feel and has Kenn Lending on guitar playing a terrific response to her call, backed by Verner on keyboards, Svenni Savafnisson on bass and Frank Larsen on drums. Telephone Blues has the same lineup and gives Harrington the opportunity to dig in deep, pushed by the solid guitar work of Lending. Very nice. Ray Charles' Hallelujah I Love Her So, gets the full big experience with Harrington swinging. With Robert Miesbauer on alto, Max Lichtenwagner on alto, Theresia Puhringer on alto, Michael Kaltenbrunner on tenor, Gunther Bauer on tenor, Nikolas Hans Wuhrer on bari, Roland Ruhm on trombone, Peter Berghammer on trombone, Gerhard Puhringer on trombone, Gerhard Eiblhuber on trombone, Herbert Mayr on trumpet, Johann Paul on trumpet, Thomas Berghammer on trumpet, Rudolf Zorweg on trumpet, Stefan Kaltenbrunner on trumpet, Frank Folgmann on guitar, Mike Kreuzer on piano, Johann Puhringer on bass, Eduard Moitzi on drums and Michael Kuntner on percussion this track has real horsepower. Wrapping the release is classic ballad, What a Wonderful World, a perfect track for Harington reflecting back on her life and career. Backed by Fuhrmann on piano, and Gurtler on trombone, a solid closer for an enjoyable release.
