All twelve songs on Love for Connoisseurs feature Canadian Angela Verbrugge's original lyrics to either new or existing jazz compositions by modern-day composers. Her vision for this project was to create new vocal jazz repertoire by collaborating with composers that write innovative, yet catchy, melodies in the style of the classic jazz standards. Angela selected songs that would be a fit for both her storytelling style as a lyricist and vocalist, and engaged a quartet of the very top Canadian jazz musicians to accompany her and bring the songs to life. She composed three of her own tunes, and translated the title track from her first album into French. The six composers she teamed up with are some of the best bebop-oriented jazz musicians on the scene today: New Yorkers Ken Fowser, Nick Hempton, Ray Gallon, and Neal Miner, and Vancouverites Miles Black and Saul Berson. Angela's dream is that these songs could become enduring and modern additions to jazz standards' songbooks.
