Kyle Cox’s 3rd full-length album, Perhaps One Day is an ode to the jazz vocal groups of the 30’s and 40’s. His first self-produced effort seeks to embrace the sounds of The Mills Brothers, Billie Holiday, and the Ink Spots - to write a tribute to the genre and a love letter to the era. What became of it is his most focused and well-crafted collection of recordings yet.
With assists from some top-tier players, Paul Defiglia on bass (The Avett Brothers, Langhorne Slim, Charles Bradley), Matthew Wright on keys (David Ramirez), and Robert Gay on trumpet (Natalie Prass, Jim Lauderdale), Kyle Cox has brought us an elegant listening experience; distinct, yet instantly familiar. From the first sultry note of the ascending trumpet riff on the album’s opening track “No Matter How Far”, you are immersed into a world where sentimentality meets sincerity. Three part harmonies, twinkling keys, and muted trumpet all support veteran songwriting, crafted without a hint of cynicism or irony and a deep respect for the genre.
