Called “the most gifted pure jazz singer of her generation,” Champian Fulton has become a world-class jazz pianist and vocalist with international acclaim. This young woman born in Oklahoma captivates audiences in New York’s finest jazz rooms and in concert halls around the world. For this release she performs as part of a trio with drummer Kristian Leth and bassist Hans Backenroth.
Somewhere over the Atlantic, en route to a two week tour of Scandinavia, Champian Fulton received news that Sweden was closing its borders and going into lockdown, drastically changing her plans. With some unexpected time on their hands, Champian and her Scandinavian Trio (Kristian Leth on drums and Hans Backenroth on bass) took their new tour-ready repertoire and headed into the studio. The resulting album, “I’ll See You in My Dreams” (Venus Record) showcases the trio with instrumental numbers such as the title track, Horace Silver’s “Opus De Funk” and Champian’s original composition “Happy Camper.” Standout vocals include the unearthed gem “Every Now and Then” and the swinging Ahmad Jamal-esque arrangement of “I Don’t Want to Set the World on Fire”.
