Starry Starry Night is a collection of cover versions of mainly familiar material by drummer Paul Clarvis and pianist Liam Noble, two characterful lights of the British jazz scene. The tunes range from classic standards like Duke Ellington's "Mood Indigo," the Gershwins' "Embraceable You" and Scott Joplin's "Maple Leaf Rag," through to more recent treasures like Gillian Welch's "Dear Someone," Don Maclean's "Vincent (Starry Starry Night)" and Moondog's "Paris." The album is as intimate and seductive as the source material and instrumentation promise – Clarvis and Noble are respectful of the composers' original intentions, rarely straying far from the top-lines or basic changes – but the duo bring fresh fascination to even the most well-worn item.
