Winters & Mays
- Artist: Aimee Allen
- Format: CD
- Release Date:5/3/2011
The warmth of Aimée's nuanced, velvet timbre and the superb artistry of the accompanying musicians shine through on every track. Each member of the band turns in masterful performances, and accordion virtuoso Victor Prieto burns as the guest star on three tracks, Sting's Fragile, the bossa favorite Samba em Preludio, and the Aimée's tango-inspired original Second Time Around. New here are Aimée's original compositions Eden Autumn and Noah Too (written for her nieces and nephew), Second Time Around, I'll Get Along, and the spiritually cosmic Stardust Reunited. Aimée's inspired lyric to the Pat Metheny composition Always and Forever is also included here, with his permission, as a new title, Love Aloud. Aimée's brother, composer and guitarist David E. Allen is the author of the rich, emotive ballad We Are in Love Again, and co-author with Aimée of That Day. In addition to Fragile, the covers include a playful tongue-and-cheek medley of Bye Bye Blackbird and It Could Happen to You, the beautiful Henri Mancini ballad Two for the Road, and Dave Frishberg's sexy and commanding Peel Me A Grape. The journey through Winters & Mays takes you many places, following the warm and soulful lead of Aimée's voice.
