The Idea of North. Four stunning voices make their ABC Jazz debut on a smooth, velvety a cappella album, 'Here and Now'.
With a diverse range of songs, including Michael Jackson's 'Man In The Mirror', Sting's 'Fragile', Gershwin's 'But Not For Me', and Randy Newman's delightful ballad from 'Toy Story 2', 'When She Loved Me', this album will appeal to music lovers of all ages.
Many of the songs on the CD are arrangements by members of the group itself – Trish Delaney-Brown, Naomi Crellin, Nick Begbie, and Andrew Piper – and all the sounds you hear on the recording are made with the voices or bodies of The Idea of North!
Australian Jazz sensation James Morrison has said of the group, "The Idea of North is the best contemporary a cappella group in the country and is quickly becoming recognised as one of the top groups in this genre in the world."
This is music that will open your heart and touch your soul.
"The range of different songs on the album keeps the listener interested and surprised throughout."
