Kenny Clayton releases tribute to Petula Clark and Matt Monro

Sunday, 11 September 2005 12:57

Kenny Clayton is releasing a tribute to Petula Clark and Matt Monro that is scheduled to be released on November 21st, 2005.

The new album that Kenny has recorded is a heartfelt tribute to Petula Clark and Matt Monro. The album is entitled: "Kenny Clayton Plays Tribute to Petula Clark and Matt Monro - My Pet Sounds / A Portrait Of Matt". The catalogue number is: KENCC CD001. The album is now available to pre-order from Dress Circle .

The album was recorded at the start of August - the finished product sounds amazing with Kenny at a grand boudoir piano playing the timeless music of both Matt and Petula. Kenny was Matt's musical director between 1967 and 1969 and has been Petula's MD since 1962.

The CD comes complete with extensive liner notes featuring photos of Kenny with Petula and Matt. Kenny has also written a small tribute to Petula and Matt that is featured on the back of the CD booklet.

The tracks on the album are as follows:

My Pet Sounds: Who Am I / I Know A Place / My Love / Sailor / The Other Man's Grass Is Always Greener / Romeo / A Sign Of The Times / I Couldn't Live Without Your Love / Here For You / Downtown / Give It A Try A Portrait Of Matt: My Kind Of Girl / Portrait Of My Love / Wednesday's Child / As Long As I'm Singing / Walk Away / Born Free / From Russia With Love / Yesterday / On Days Like These / Softly As I Leave You

Total Tracks: 21; Total Playing time: 77m: 18s

Tim Hutton writes: After long conversations with Kenny we decided that the time was right to release a properly produced CD of Kenny playing piano of songs made famous by Petula Clark and Matt Monro.

The first song to be recorded that day was "A Portrait Of My Love" which reduced Kenny to tears as he has such wonderful memories of working with Matt. He misses Matt very much. Kenny arrived at the studio with no sheet music and played straight from the heart - the sound engineer commented that day that a pianist of Kenny's calibre is extremely rare.

Recently Kenny was thrilled to find that the Matt DVD "One Voice" featured himself as Matt's MD. What a find!

The Petula songs featured on the album are very much part of what Kenny does today and has been doing since 1962. Currently Kenny is in America with Petula and Andy Williams at the Moon River Theatre performing in a series nightly concerts for 6 weeks.
