The Good, the Bad, the Awkward, Sally Whitwell
This title perfectly suits this new release from recent piano superstar, Sally Whitwell. From the very first track, performed on melodica you can hear that Whitwell is a musician strong in her own sense of self. I read the CD notes cover to cover I was so enthralled in the way she wrote and was strangely disappointed they were so short. The delicacy and delight in each track is apparent in her consideration of every note. These are works that are all featured in films, and as she says, ‘it’s all about how awkward people eventually can find their place in the world, can ultimately triumph.’ I believe that Sally Whitwell has triumphed on this recording.
