WOMAN IN BLACK


composed for Sasha Strunin

The material contained on this album is a musical tale straight from classic  ‘noir’  style.

This is a story of change from a girl to a self-confident young woman and great performing artist.

The classic vocals of Sasha and brilliant arrangements of Gary Guthman are a combination of Rhythm& Blues, Jazz and swing

with a modern sound. In fact, this is a musical spectacle, perfect for large concert halls to moody jazz clubs
