Nancy Goudinaki, Ariadne’s Lullaby Review
Guitarist, vocalist and composer, Nancy Goudinaki also known to many as simply Nancy G, from the tender age of eight knew her ultimate pursuit in life would be music. She began that journey with classical guitar. She received her B.A. in Music/Fine Arts in 2007 from Aristotle University in Thessaloniki, Greece. Upon moving to New York City, she began to pursue her studies as a jazz vocalist. Studying with JD Walter, jazz composer and lyricist Miles Griffith, Cynthia Scott (The Raelettes), and Barry Harris (recipient of the 1998 Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award). Her debut album I Wanna Be Your Star (2014) featured a cabalcade of jazz heavyweights, including: pianist Orrin Evans, bassist Dwayne Burno, saxophonist JD Allen, and drummer Rudy Royston, featuring special guests- vocalist Miles Griffith, bassist Richie Goods and percussionist Daniel Sadownick. Goudinaki’s latest single “Ariadne’s Lullaby,” is a beautiful tribute to her niece, recently born.
Ariadne’s Lullaby (single)
Release Date: September 30, 2019
A beautiful elastic sound that ruminates the renewal of a newborn, and the nimble dexterity of Goudinaki on the classical nylon strung guitar. An added bonus is the heartwarming coos and laughter of niece Ariadne.
