Make Sure You "Please Leave Your Light On" For Paul Kelly & Paul Garbowsky

Australia's premier singer/songwriter Paul Kelly has teamed up with award-winning composer/pianist Paul Grabowsky for the new release titled "Please Leave Your Light On." The album features a dozen tracks, most of which have already existed in the Paul Kelly catalog, but are newly redone live in the studio with just a piano and vocals. The album tries to capture the magic of other essential collaborations like Frank Sinatra & Nelson Riddle or Tony Bennett & Bill Evans.

The album begins with the love song "True To You" and the graceful melody of "Petrichor," as you begin to ease into this collection of emotional numbers. Grabowsky's piano work supports Kelly's poetic lyrics of "When A Woman Loves A Man," while the classic jazz appeal of "Young Lovers" leaves you wanting a swinging rhythm section to be added to this song. The duo pay tribute to Cole Porter with the slow, peaceful telling of "Every Time We Say Goodbye," before finishing their new album with the heartfelt ballad "You Can Put Your Shoes Under My Bed" and the honest prayer for forgiveness with "If I Could Start Today Again."
