by The Tierney Sutton Band



Tierney Sutton, a leading figure in vocal jazz for nearly a decade, maintains that the obsession with fame and material things – a phenomenon that has been accelerated and amplified in this media-centric new century – is wasted energy. Worse yet, it comes with a dark aspect that can infect the soul. Such is the premise of Desire.

While the songs in this eleven-track set are mostly jazz standards, they are framed by opening and closing tracks that are embellished with lyrics lifted from sacred religious and spiritual texts. “To me, this record is about stepping back and recognizing the difference between the voices we hear that are not our own and the ones that are truly within us,” Sutton explains, “and discovering that the material things that we want or desire are not usually a path to happiness, and are not usually a path to ourselves.” From the Label
