If we can judge the character of an individual by the company they keep then vocalist Ellynne Rey is in mighty fine company on her new CD “A Little Bit Of Moonlight”. Her taste is further enhanced by her excellent choice of material too, showcasing fifteen selections from the jazz canon and the Great American Songbook. As the noted jazz critic and author Will Friedwald states in his liner notes; “ I’m allowed to have favorites - the same as anyone else - and for me, the standout tracks on this album are the duets and the occasional trios. The numbers with full rhythm section are also excellent, but it’s the more minimal and intimate numbers, in which singer Ellynne Rey works with just with the master guitarist Gene Bertoncini, and / or the veteran bassist Paul Beaudry, that most caught me personally. ”

The selections on “A Little Bit Of Moonlight” explore matters of the heart, love, loss and joy and songs by legendary jazz piano players too; McCoy Tyner’s “You Taught My Heart to Sing”, Thelonious Monk’s “Ruby My Dear,” Mal Waldron’s “Soul Eyes” and “Blue in Green” by Bill Evans. Accompanied by some of the most talented musicians on the New York City jazz scene Gene Bertoncini (Benny Goodman, Buddy Rich, Tony Bennett), Paul Beaudry (Clark Terry, Grady
Tate, Jimmy Cobb), Tony Jefferson (Eddie Harris, Kenny Drew Jr., Lonnie Smith), Bennett Paster (Wallace Roney, Kurt Elling, Rufus Reid), Daniel Sadownick (Beyonce, Michael Brecker, Pat Martino). By devouring classic jazz recordings of the instrumentalists and singers from the 1930’s - 1960’s, Ellynne developed a love for the rich American musical tradition we call jazz.

Ellynne Rey, a Connecticut native, has had the chance to meet, study, and work with some of the 
best jazz musicians and singers worldwide. Here is what the critics have said:

“...Not only does she make it work [singing with just guitar and bass] she makes it magical.
It just goes to show if you have the voice and the material you don’t need 
all that lavish production.” —Jack Goodstein/Seattle PI

“The singer works the crowd with her witty lyricism, upbeat vibe, and joyous overtones .
She also uses wonderful diction to complement her silky voca lcords and
acute dynamic sense... Ellynne’s style and delivery loom as a high point...”
—Glenn Astarita/AllAboutJazz

Ellynne is a gifted lyricist, composer, and performer. She composes with a sophisticated understanding of harmony and can rejuvenate songs written decades before
she was born.  She is a true artist.
