Tony Quarrington and Zoey Adams make up the prolific and eclectic musical duo, Q&A.
He is an accomplished jazz guitarist, composer and songwriter, and hundreds of credits on recordings in all genres. She brings to the duo her vast experience in theatre, movies, radio, and corporate entertainment. They are now co-writing and performing the original tunes that are the core repertoire of Q&A.
Their latest release on Sonic Peach Music is an ambitious project consisting of 15 original tunes, being released on three EPs. They enlisted the help of some truly accomplished musicians to accomplish this dream – Stuart Laughton, Burke Carroll, Martin Worthy, Jeff McLeod, Steve Lucas, Chris Robinson, Paul Tarusov, Rebecca Campbell, Amy Laing & Shelley Coopersmith.
ONE MORE POP THING, the final EP in the trilogy, features more original songs in 40s and 50’s style pop, and pretty much remaining in that simpler, melodic part of the 20th century.
ONE MORE THING (3:55) Up-tempo Swing/Rock A wacky upbeat lament led by harmonica and electric guitar. This title track features strong he/she vocals and harmonies, and a synth sound like a rubber elephant.
LINGER, LINGER, LINGER (4:40) Up-tempo Swing/Dixie With the feel of a 50’s novelty number, the sassy vocal is augmented by solos on Les Paul-like guitar, followed by piano and trombone and a free-flying Dixieland jam featuring clarinet, trumpet, and trombone.
WHEN I THINK ABOUT YOU (3:43) Up-tempo Swing Vocal trades with trombone. Trombone trades with guitar. Spoiler alert – trombone has the last word!
END OF THE BEGINNING (5:08) Medium-slow 50’s Rock Ballad A 50’s slow-dance – an emotional vocal duet that features pedal steel, Duane Eddy-style twangy electric, and throbbing rhythm piano. Snowball!
MISS ME A LITTLE (5:26) Medium/up Swing A peppy, cheeky vocal with light harmonies, supported by great piano and multiple hot guitars.
