Inspired by melodies written by jazz pianist Bert Seager, Anita Diamant asked if she might try writing lyrics for a few of his songs. His “yes” led to a wonderful collaboration and the release of Requited.
The CD is a jazzy mix with elements of gospel, art song, and Broadway, and lyrics full of honest emotion and grown-up turns of phrase. The disc features an all-star five piece band, fronted by vocalist Rebecca Shrimpton.
Requited means “given in return,” “completed,” or “made whole.” Says Diamant, “Requited is a word that describes how I felt working with Bert.”
