Grace Haggerty : What A Wonderful World Review

grace-haggerty-cdVocalist Grace Haggerty is a newcomer to the jazz scene, but one that will undoubtedly turn heads. In early 2021 Haggerty released an LP, My Funny Valentine. The album featured some of the most enduring standards of our era; as the writing is so timeless, the songs continue to have relevance in this modern era. The album features arrangements by Angelo DiPippo and an all-star cast including John Fedchock, Jennifer Warton, David Finck, Tony Tedesco, and more.  


In time for the holiday season, Haggerty is releasing a single “What A Wonderful World,” once again teaming up with renowned conductor/arranger Angelo DiPippo and producer/engineer Fred Guarino. Featuring an orchestra anchored by a trio featuring Tedd Firth on piano, David Finck on bass, and Tony Tedesco on drums. 


“What A Wonderful World” has quickly become a new holiday go-to. The positive lyric of hope fits nicely among the classic chestnuts. Haggerty has an unadorned vocal style. Her classic style is in service to the honest and heartfelt lyric it represents, not trying to reinvent the wheel. Haggerty instead focuses on the beauty of the timeless song and its meaningful message by honoring its intended style. Each musician in the ensemble and orchestra is a sincere additive to the overall enjoyment of the track, not to mention the superb sound that fills each crevice of the sonic palette, a must-add to your holiday playlist. “What A Wonderful World” is as sweet as its title, and it’s meant to be savored.

About The Author
Shannon Smith
A fan of music my entire life. Should that be enough, well it is for me. Who buys music, the fans. Who listens to music, the fans. Like me, there are many like-minded individuals that daily search for meaningful and new music to add to their playlist, their soundtrack of life. A life without music would Bb. Yes, I have seen that saying floating around for years, and truth is, its #truth. So, may I introduce you to Shannon Smith (me). I am the editor. A music junkie that can’t get enough music in my life. A nerd (proudly), with some mad love for technology and design. It is that desire that sparked Sound in Review. Life is busy, the reviews are meant to ultimately introduce and briefly talk about the music. We have a section called SIR Quote: this is my way of saying thank you, to the countless artists making the world a place of expression. Show yours by rating each artists album, just as we have (collectively as writers), to show your support for your favorite artist.
