Running On Faith
Two-time Grammy-winning vocalist/pianist Diane Schuur shakes out new versions of songs for which she has a deep-rooted affection. On her latest recording Running On Faith, Schuur arranges music by some of her favorite performers and songwriters; from Miles Davis to Percy Mayfield to Paul Simon, all with her distinctive, jazzy charm. According to Schuur, Ive been focusing on the condition of our world and selected songs that make a statement about what is, along with songs of hope, about what can be. Showcasing music from Running On Faith, Schuurs performance will include blues, straight-ahead jazz and a few tunes that defy categorization. The artist adds these familiar compositions to her expansive body of work to create a musical blueprint of her current place in time.
Schuur is playfully salty and intimate throughout Running on Faith
A.D. Amorosi / JazzTimes Magazine
A marvelously mature, swinging after hours record where Schuur takes the wheel with Ernie Watts at her side, this is as close to a civil rights jazz record as a white girl can come.
Chris Spector Midwest Record Entertainment Reviews, News and Views
Schuur digs deep on songs as close to her as skin…Deedles continues to be a force of nature in jazz. A very welcome one.
C. Michael Bailey / All About Jazz
This is, remarkably, Dianes most personal record to date a by-turns angry, joyous, mournful, optimistic and spiritual mediation on the world we find ourselves in today.
