Sarah Moule - It's a Nice Thought - The Guardian
08 August 2002The Guardian
The British singer Sarah Moule deftly delivered this title track at a recent London gig featuring a rare appearance by its original composer, the London based American poet and lyricist Fran Landesman. This debut set for the subtle and intelligent young vocalist features 14 new songs of Landesman's, and Moule's purring voice - honeyed in sound, subtle in timing and pitch, shrewd in weighting the music with meaning - maximises the lyricist's repertoire of resigned humour, glimpsed tragedies and razor sharp metaphor. Some fine musicians, including saxophonists Iain Ballamy and Tim Whitehead, and jazz/blues guitarist Jim Mullenenhance an impressive beginning for Ms Moule. British composer/pianist Simon Wallace is economically apposite on the piano.
