A very special CD for (and by) a very special musician. Trombonist Carol Jarvis is a fine and much in demand performer. Diagnosed in 2004 with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma at the age of only 26, Carol has fought through the disease with pioneering treatment and has maintained her position as one of the UK’s leading instrumentalists. In her own words; “a cancer diagnosis doesn’t have to be a death sentence. It can be a very dark and lonely place, but it also opens your eyes to the world. If anything, my life is so much better since that diagnosis as I don’t take anything for granted anymore and treasure even the smallest things.” The British branch of Divine Art is honored to be able to present this wonderful album for the benefit of Britain’s foremost cancer care charity; thanks are due to everyone who has contributed in any way. Carol is accompanied by a hand-picked orchestra conducted by Roderick Dunk.
