The recording features a mix of standards including Ringwald's take on "The Breakfast Club" classic, "Don't You (Forget About Me)." The singing actress will play the Manhattan nightspot 54 Below Jan. 15-16. Additional tour dates are expected.
"Except…Sometimes" was produced by Peter Smith and features Clayton Cameron on drums, Allen Mezquida on alto saxophone, Peter Smith on piano and Trevor Ware on bass.
In a statement Ringwald said, “I grew up in a home filled with music and had an early appreciation of jazz since my dad was a jazz musician [pianist Bob Ringwald]. 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."
