On 2014's Grammy-nominated Paris Sessions, called "a bare-bones journey into the depths of musical intimacy" by AllMusic. Com, vocalist Tierney Sutton forged an indelible chemistry with classically-trained Parisian guitarist-arranger Serge Merlaud. Now husband and wife, the two take their musical connection to even deeper levels on Paris Sessions 2. "We got married at the end of 2019, had a ceremony in Paris in October and another in L. A. at the end of December," Sutton explained. "This turned out to be lucky timing because once COVID shut everything down, only people legally married to citizens of France or the United States could travel freely. Which we did, back and forth on empty planes. " While Paris Sessions was recorded over two days at Val d'Orge Studio in the City of Lights, Par-is Sessions 2 was recorded during lockdown at L. A. 's Tritone Studios. Acoustic bass guitarist Kevin Axt, a member of the Tierney Sutton Band since 2005 and a key component of the first Par-is Sessions, is back on board for Paris Sessions 2, providing resounding bass lines and all-important chordal work behind Merlaud's lyrical guitar solos. Legendary flutist Hubert Laws, who recorded remotely from his home studio, blends beautifully with Sutton's crystalline voice on five songs. The results are as entrancing as they are invigorating.
