    Album information

    With a Song in My Heart reflects a period of maturation and reflection. It is a gentle and uncluttered smooth set of songs enhanced by the virtuoso playing of Guy Barker on trumpet.

    A jewel in the crown of British Jazz for many years, but unrecorded since 1994, With a Song in My Heart saw Gill Manly make a welcome and decisive return to the studio. Gill Manly is a jazz singer who has been described as "an amalgam of Bessie Smith and Sarah Vaughan."

    Her debut album on Linn, With a Song in My Heart, features performances by trumpeter Guy Barker and singer Mark Murphy. A stalwart of London's live music scene for many years, Gill Manly has returned to the recording studio due to popular demand from champions such as Mark Murphy. With a Song in My Heart reflects a period of maturation and reflection.

    It is a gentle and flawless selection of jazz standards enhanced by the virtuoso playing of Guy Barker on trumpet. With a Song in My Heart sees Manly reclaim her place amongst the current jazz vocalists who have long cited her as an inspiration and a unique interpreter of the jazz singers' vast cannon.
