At Last

Lora coverArctic Siren Productions, Inc. is happy to announce the release of AT LAST by Lora Mahaffey. Featuring some of Anchorage’s finest players, AT LAST features Kevin Barnett on piano, Kerry Maule on trumpet, Jim Davis on saxophone. Dirk Westfall on bass and John Nyman on drums.  

 

At Last is both a poignantly aching and vibrantly alive recording of jazz standards that achieves the near impossible—it makes these classic songs sound fresh and new again. Evocative and expressive, At Last is a stunning achievement in a debut album.

 

In At Last, we have the wonderfully sly and wry “In These Shoes,” filled with a good-natured sense of play. We have the sinuous and sensual performance of “Black Coffee” that twists through the emotionally intricate lyrics and ends on a snake-like rattle. We have the mournful cry of “Stormy Weather,” that presents an upbeat face over a dark and painful loss. We have  the powerful and heartfelt “At Last,” a blues- and gospel-tinged anthem to redemption and promise.
