Eleanor Dubinsky: Soft Spot Of My Heart Album Release
Joe's Pub, April 10, 2018 Doors at 6 pm, Show at 7 pm
Eleanor Dubinsky has found the tender edge where jazz, world, and pop sensibilities meet emotionally forthright songwriting. In this highly anticipated CD release concert, Dubinsky presents her new album Soft Spot Of My Heart, laid down in studios in Lisbon, Portugal and NYC over the course of 2017. A globally savvy collection of songs highlighting Eleanor's potent vocals and embracing the musical colors and influences of a diverse group of collaborators from Portugal, NYC, Cape Verde and Brazil, Soft Spot Of My Heart draws from a variety of musical influences including gospel, folk, jazz, Latin and Luso-African. To underline her uplifting message, Eleanor welcomes special guests from Brooklyn based contemporary gospel ensemble Greg Stamper Stamper & Soul21, who also make a noteworthy appearance on her new record.
"Soft Spot Of My Heart is a cerebral, thought-provoking and enchanting album that has the capacity to captivate. It is full of melodic and memorable music which Eleanor Dubinsky delivers against a series of carefully crafted and polished arrangements...poignant, powerful and thought-provoking." - Derek's Music Blog
“Then the voice - simple direct and honest. Its melody lifted me right out of the funk I'd been in. Eleanor's music reminds me of the best of Sting. Great production, spacious grooves and deep feeling all around!” - Steve Sandberg (Pianist, 3X Emmy nominated composer)
