A Summer Place
Like most of the greats, Sydney-born, London-based saxophonist Amy Dickson started out young. She began taking lessons at age 6; by 18 she was recording with famed violinist and conductor John Harding and the Sydney Symphony Orchestra. Dickson’s career has continued to blossom, and her latest album, A Summer Place, showcases her distinctive tone and thoughtful phrasing in 10 tracks that evoke the style and sophistication of summer in the ’50s, ’60s, and ’70s.
Dickson tugs on heartstrings with her rendition of “Moon River,” from the 1966 classic Breakfast at Tiffany’s, and delivers an emotional performance of the Burt Bacharach–penned “What’s It All About Alfie?” from the film Alfie. She puts a Latin spin on “Take Five,” made famous by the Dave Brubeck Quartet, and closes the album with a lyrical version of Simon & Garfunkel’s “The Sound of Silence.”
