love notes by Lenore RaphaelJust Released — Love Notes – A Tribute To Oscar Peterson is Lenore Raphael’s ninth recording on the SWINGIN’ FOX MUSIC label and is already getting major airplay on jazz stations internationally.

Lenore just returned from a tour in the United Kingdom and Portugal and she packed the venues with her Oscar Peterson tribute concert.

Love Notes is her second recording with the wonderful renowned guitarist Howard Alden.

“Ms Raphael’s pianisms affirm that Jazz is “America’s Classical Music”. Hers &  Howard Alden’s playful  touch on guitar offer tuneful conversations.~~~~ Lenore’s & Howard’s duet playing is in~the~pocket and swinging.”…Peter Poses, jazz host and writer, KRFC. FM

She has added one of the best “slap” bassists in the world, Kelly Friesen, and the wonderful tasty brush drumming of Steve Williams on two tracks.

This is her tribute to one of the most influential musicians ever and the reason Lenore chose jazz as her life.
