"Dudley's debut, "Close To You" offers sophisticated takes on standards, diva pop and scattable bebop". Bill Levine, Nashville Scene Sandra shows off her amazing voice and scat chops with a collection of songs creatively arranged by husband/pianist Bruce Dudley. The album is a mix of energetic septet tunes and heartwarming duo selections.
Bruce and Sandra's award-winning song "Billie" is also featured along with a compelling version of Bacharach's "Close To You". Sandra and Bruce are joined by some amazing Nashville musicians: Jim White, Roger Spencer, Denis Solee, Barry Green and George Tidwell.
