Product Description

When Kim Stockwood met with jazz great, Bill King, in 2016, she had already sifted through dozens of old standards and had a handful of songs she wanted to explore with him. As the pair spent time together, Kim’s vision for a record of standards developed, yet she still struggled with a couple of songs. Songs that weren’t standards that she felt should be. Songs that she wanted to sing and that she wanted the world to hear.

With the passing of her mentor, Ron Hynes, Kim decided that she must take the plunge, and she recorded Ron’s “Sometimes The Moon”. Kim’s relationship with Ron began when she first started singing in St. John’s in the early ‘90’s. Out of the blue, Ron called her and invited her to demo the song. It was a memorable moment for the new singer. She’d never met Ron but she was already in awe of his talent. It was the beginning of a long and close friendship. Ron never released “Sometimes the Moon” but Kim and Ron often performed it together. On one of these occasions, it was recorded live. Ron’s resulting guitar track anchors the new recording, allowing them to perform it one last time together. Kim’s desire to do Ron’s song justice compelled her to ask Ben Mink to play violin on the song and the result is a stunning version of “Sometimes The Moon” that Ron would be proud of.
