The Abramson Singers

The Abramson Singers (independent)



Though it may sound like The Abramson Singers could pack a room like the Von Trapp kids, really it's only Leah Abramson and her angelic voice singing most of the parts, accompanied by her Vancouver jazz musician friends. Abramson recorded her a cappella vocal pieces in organza-like layers---the harmonies build and then dance away in oh-so pretty ways. Opener "Take a Camera" is a cheerful observational ode, a sharp contrast to the darker moments in "Fool's Gold," which recalls the quietest moments in Julie Fader's latest, while "Un Jeune Malade" carries the pluck like Christine Fellows. Abramsom plays IDOW Friday night at The Company House.
