Beckie Menzie
Heart and Soul, Real Emotional Girl

"Heart and Soul was the first song I ever learned to play on piano, but it wasn't until years later that I even knew of the incredible Hoagy Carmichael lyrics or was able to understand what they really meant."

And lyrics are the focus of Beckie's album. Each song tells its own story . . . each song is her heart and soul.

"Heart & Soul" is distributed nationally by Original Cast Records.

Bob Moreen

Paris in the Jazz Age

Bob Moreen sings at the keyboard, Patrick Holland shares the ivories and cabaret singer Claudia Hommel is sometimes on top of the piano, as we follow the love affair between American jazz performers and the jazz-crazy public of Paris.

Storm in with James Reese Europe's 369th Infantry Hellfighter's Jazz Band, strut the cakewalk, shake the shimmy with Bricktop, dance the Charleston with Josephine Baker, swoon with Mistinguett and Maurice Chevalier, croon with Cole Porter, sing the blues with Duke Ellington, go avant-garde with Darius Milhaud, Francis Poulenc, and Kurt Weill, and swing with the French "zazous". It's the "crazy years" between World Wars in jazz hot Paris.

Claudia Hommel
The Jazz Fauré Project: au bord de l'eau

French Impressionism meets American Jazz and Claudia Hommel, Sean Harris, Dennis Luxion and Bobby Schiff are giving seventeen 19th century hit-tunes of Gabriel Fauré the velvet treatment—from swing to bossa, from wistful ballad to snappy joie de vivre.

All lyrics and translations included.

Neil Tesser writes: "In this ambitious and fascinating project, Fauré's melodies now fit comfortably in a 21st-century cabaret or jazz club. "Spleen" (a.k.a. "Melancholy") becomes a bluesy torch song, just waiting for Diana Krall or Madeleine Peyroux. And when you hear some more familiar tunes wending their way through the program - "Les feuilles mortes" (better known as "Autumn Leaves") or "La mer" (which Bobby Darin made famous as "Beyond the Sea") - rest assured that these standards belong here as well."

Dennis Livingston
The Stories In My Mind: The Songs Of Dennis Livingston

The debut CD of original songs by Dennis Livingston, recorded live at New York's Metropolitan Room, is rooted in the sophisticated lyrics and story-telling tradition of American Songbook standards. A touch of jazz, a deeply felt ballad, the sudden breakout of a samba or bossa, an unexpected gospel tune, a chorus that echoes the 19th century art song – you never know what’s around the corner. The cast features Julie Reyburn (4 time MAC, 2 time Bistro awards), Scott Coulter (Director) (4 time MAC, 4 time Bistro, 2 time Nightlife awards), Kenneth Gartman (Music Director), Christina Connors and Alex Goley, along with Matt Scharfglass on bass and guitar.

KT McCammond
Finding My Way Home

KT MC Cammond’s debut CD, Finding My Way Home, (dedicated to her late husband, Mac,) offers up a smorgasbord of well-delivered tunes in genres ranging from jazz to pop to cabaret. In C’est Si Bon, McCammond honors well her frequent muse Eartha Kitt, yet with a sensuality that is distinctly McCammond’s. Mc Cammond’s voice is supple and she can trade eights with the best of ‘em in the jazz tracks. That said, where this collection glows is in the less arranged, more simply delivered tracks. Natural Woman, with harmonies added by Beckie Menzie, mixes power and gratitude in a well-sung interpretation. Emily Remembers (by Shirley Eikhard) is arguably the best track. McCammond shares Eikhard’s message in a way that is far more loving than sorrowful. One cannot help but be moved. Finding My Way Home should find a good place in your home.
