Late Night Parlour is a mix of Teresa Doyle’s own songwriting and tunes from the swing and Latin era. The title track takes you to the tropical sensuality of Tobago and a mountainside rum shack called The Late Night Parlour. Inspired by performing with Soca musicians at the rum shack, Teresa began writing songs from the langour of her beach chair. Her songwriting is sassy, sexy, danceable and fun. The Late Night Parlour is co-produced by Teresa and David Rashed.
Original tracks “You’re My Cup of Tea”, “Late Night Parlour”, “Dance Me Outside” and “Good Morning Man”, complement great classics like “All the Cats Join In”, “Foolin’ Myself ” and “No Moon at All”. The recording conjures up visions of steamy tropical nights, dancing, laughter and romance. “The Late Night Parlour is a delightful collection of jazz originals and standards, sung with spunk and finesse. With her gorgeous voice, impeccable pitch and phrasing, Teresa takes supreme ownership of whatever she sings. Music from the core of one of Canada’s finest, most versatile vocalists.”
