Review By Southern Cross (written by Craig Schwarze)
5 stars By Mr Jazz, Oct 07 2009
Steve Morrison is well known in local circles, both as an Anglican minister as well as an accomplished Jazz musician. His last album, Silently, was well received in musical circles. His new album promises to bring his music to a broader audience. 

In So Quiet, Morrison covers a number of classic songs. The style is a combination of beautifully mellow swing and silky soft Latin. This album is so cool you could chill beer on it. 

Vocals are provided by veteran singer, Jeff Duff. Glenn A Baker has suggested that Duff would have been as famous as Lou Reed if he had been born in America. Morrison must have been thrilled to secure him for this project. Needless to say, Duff's performance is superb, absolutely confident. 

The first track is the oft-covered Billie Holiday classic, God Bless the Child. It's a good choice that reflects the understated spirituality of the album. Morrison is here to play, not preach, but his faith is not hidden from view. 

The album follows with a number of well known and well loved songs - Mr Bojangles, Sway, Mercedes Benz , The Girl from Ipanema and more. If the titles are not familiar, the tunes will be. A personal highlight for me was the coolest version of Somewhere over the Rainbow you will ever hear. 

The challenge with such famous tracks is to bring something fresh to them, without being obvious or gimmicky. I think Morrison has succeeded here.
