Jazz Vocalist and Educator
"Darden Purcell’s latest project “Love’s Got Me in a lazy Mood” is a rich and swinging affair, with powerful, impeccably performed arrangements that (IMHO) often evoke the memory of great arrangers like George Shearing and Marty Paich. Some serious musicianship from all the players. Darden has a lovely sense of ‘history’ in her sound - it’s clear she’s listened to all the greats, while giving these songs her own stamp. Music full of joy - a pleasure."
