As a featured soloist and ensemble singer, Fred Farell has made a name for himself as a preeminent pro jazz voice. Across five decades and at venues like Avery Fisher Hall, the Brooklyn Academy of Music, and the Museum of Modern Art, Farell has demonstrated inspired interpretive abilities to go with his sweet pipes. Distant Song, his debut for Whaling City Sound, is a deep experience, thanks in part to composers & loyal accompanists Dave Liebman and Richie Beirach. Farell’s lyrics require incredible patience and passion on the microphone. Songs unfold gently, religiously, and deftly. Infused in part with gospel messaging, Distant Song is a heartfelt project, produced with happiness and love by a veteran talent clearly confident and at peace with himself and his abilities.

"Fred Farell's new CD is rewarding on several levels. His lyrics for the songs of Dave Liebman and Richie Beirach show that the instrumental pieces are surprisingly singable, adding to the Jazz Vocal repertoire. His singing is warm, quietly expressive, and really gets into the messages of each song. And the playing of Liebman and Beirach is as creative as ever. Their fans will find much to enjoy on this rewarding set." SCOTT YANOW, Jazz Journalist/Historian; Author of "The Jazz Singers"
