MOONSHINE IN NASHVILLE is Julia Rich's fifth full-length album for Cardinal Records, released March 14, 2009. Longtime girl singer for the Glenn Miller Orchestra, Rich included Miller's 1941 hit At Last on the recording, along with its seldom-heard verse. The album contains several standards from the '20s, '30s, and '40s; a couple from the '60s; and three Rich originals: Moonshine in Nashville, Halloween Birthday, and Good Things to Eat.
Tony Migliore's ever-fresh arrangements come off the page in the creative hands of Tony on piano, Jim Ferguson on bass, Bob Mater on drums and percussion, Denis Solee on clarinet, George Tidwell on trumpet and flugelhorn, Pat Bergeson on guitar and harmonica, and Rickey Woodard on saxophone.
The closing track, Over the Rainbow, was recorded in 2002 by Julia with Gary Weaver on piano and was rediscovered especially for this collection.
MOONSHINE IN NASHVILLE is a straight ahead recording featuring ace musicians and Julia doing what she does best...old-style!
