Retta Christie was an Oregon farm kid who learned to square dance and to accompany family members and her own singing with her guitar. She loves bristling Western swing, good Dixieland, cowboy movie music and clever song-stories by composers such as Floyd Tillman and Dave Frishberg. This is not eclecticism for it's own sake-Retta has heartfelt reactions to a variety of songs and singers and she expresses those feelings by telling-singing-each story her own way. David Evans began playing sax and clarinet around Alabama in his 'teens. He moved to New Orleans and wound up playing with everybody in the Crescent City. His resume contains names such as Nicholas Payton, Pete Fountain, B. B. King and recording artists reflecting every facet of popular music. Dave Frishberg is held in high esteem around the world as composer, lyricist, pianist and singer. Happily for Retta, and for us, he also enjoys the less conspicuous role of piano-playing sideman and accompanist. His star-studded gig history includes Al Cohn, Bobby Hackett, Ben Webster, Irene Kral, Anita O'Day and Jimmy Rushing. You won't hear Dave sing here, but you will hear Frishberg the songster at work in the sensitive touches he employs to back Retta's vocal work. "...straight ahead, no-tricks sweetness that defies pigeonholes." Doug Boynton, "There is something absolutely charming about Christie's straightforward, sweet delivery...her style is simple and melodic." Kyle O'Brien, Jazz Society of Oregon "A singer with great technique...possessing a seemingly casual grace." Maxwell Chandler "Christie does music she enjoys, with some great chops at the ready to swing along." Chris Spector, Editor, Midwest Record "Christie's calm, clear voice is a throwback to simpler times..." Barbara Mitchell, Portland Tribune "Retta brings a rare tenderness to her material." Michael Steinman, Jazz Lives.
