Except Sometimes is the debut studio All Night (Radio Edit) - Nastya Ko - All Night (File) of American singer-songwriter Molly Ringwald released on April 9,through Concord Records.
It is a jazz record that follows a tradition of the Ringwald family set by her father. Beginning at around age three I started singing with his band and jazz music has continued to be one of my three passions along with acting and writing.
I like to say jazz music is my musical equivalent of comfort food. It's always where I go back to when I want to feel grounded," Ringwald said in a statement. Ringwald dedicated this track "to the memory of J. Long before she became known as a Golden Globe-nominated actress, Ringwald was singing.
As much as I love traditional jazz, my real interest is more modern, more from the Great American Song Book. Ringwald has always wanted to release an album, but during the beginning of her career she felt the time wasn't right to release an album, as she felt no one would have been interested in the type of music she wanted to sing, so she decided to just focus on acting.
Plus, during the '80s, "I didn't think there was a place for the music that I was interested in," she says. I thought, I'll just keep singing with my dad and focus on my acting.
She felt people would have interest in her music at this time of her career and wanted to experiment with jazz music as that's what she grew up listening to. Speaking of the album's influences, Ringwald said, "I had quite the musical repertoire; it was pretty much traditional I Get Along Without You Very Well (Except Sometimes) - Molly Ringwald - Except Sometimes but there was some Bessie Smith and Helen Kanethe original Betty Boop.
Susannah's recordings have really influenced me. I think she was really special in her gifts of interpretation and how much humanity she brought to the songs.
The album received generally positive reviews. Jonathan Widran of Music Connection said, "Fans of the '80s teen icon, and skeptics alike, may wonder why she is suddenly turning her artistic attention to jazz, but Molly Ringwald has not only got it in her DNA—her dad, Bob Ringwald, is a notable pianist and bandleader—but she was recording with him long before she began acting.
Ringwald lends her cool, sultry vocals and strong instinctive phrasing to a colorful mix of standards, sweetly balancing the playful swing and gentle intimacy with the help of her ensemble of top musicians, led by pianist Peter Smith.
Jazz radio has rightly jumped first on her graceful twist on 'Don't You Forget About Me ', which infectiously blends her past and present and resonates emotionally beyond its inclusion as a nostalgic novelty. Deschanel punches above I Get Along Without You Very Well (Except Sometimes) - Molly Ringwald - Except Sometimes weight, vocally speaking, but Jonathan Lethem once wrote that the secret to good popular singing lies in the proper negotiation between your limitations and your aspirations.
Here, it doesn't even feel like Ringwald's punching; her signature tic is to start each line an eighth note or so too late, a technique that feels less effortless than lazy pregnant pauses do not constitute phrasing. Reframing the song with a jazz combo highlights the rather dopey lyrics, but that appears to be part of the joke.
