Portraits, a band born of impromptu jazz sessions at a coffeehouse in Sedona, Arizona, is releasing their first album. The recording captures the energy and feel of those hot summer evenings, when a cafe with room for twenty five was overwhelmed fivefold. The powerful and sultry vocals of singer-songwriter Adalia Tara are accompanied by David Vincent Mills on keyboards, Fitzhugh Jenkins on guitar, Zac Carson on bass, and Mark Rownd on drums. The album includes classic standards such as At Last, Autumn Leaves, and Summertime, a creative interpretation of George Harrison's While My Guitar Gently Weeps, as well as an emotional and intimate performance of Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah.
