The Lady in the Gown made it on Jim Wilke's Top ten albums of 2019, Greg Feingold, Cole Schuster, and Max Holmberg
I am so pleased and proud of being to be named one of Jim Wilke's top ten albums for 2019, it is a tremendous honor to be among such a talented group of human beings.
Lady in the Gown was released in 2018 that contained a new sound and feel. The title track is my first original song that has met some outstanding national acclaim.
This project has 14 jazz tunes with one original title track. The name was inspired by the NPR/KNKX interview from 2016 where she was then labeled the Lady in the Gown. Tabor was looking for a fresh sound and decided to collaborate with the wonderful 200 Trio. Max Holmberg on drums is an inspiration to rhythm and brings coolness and savvy more seasoned musicians yearn to obtain. Greg Feingold is a bass playing purist meaning one who can play without electronic amplification.
The strength of his strumming is tremendous and subtle at the same time. He commands the stage but allows all around him to shine. Cole Schuster is a beautiful guitarist who keeps a very cool customer look on his face while playing monster licks that move your heart and make your mind think. These men have really created a space for Tabor to broaden her song list with great support and respect. The Lady In the Gown will be released and heard for the first time live on KNKX June 5th, 2018 while interviewed by KNKX DJ Abe Beason.
