Marianne Matheny Katz CD Release at Blues Alley
Baltimore vocalist Marianne Matheny-Katz will perform tunes from her latest CD, Somewhere in Paradise. The album features fresh and engaging arrangements of familiar standards from the Great American Songbook. Jazz critic John Murph calls Matheny-Katz “a captivating singer [who] possesses a quintessential jazz voice, which she enlivens with lissome, conversational phrasing.”
Tunes include an ingenious update of George and Ira Gershwin’s “Our Love Is Here to Stay,” with references to Facebook and iPhone. Kerns & Fields' “The Way You Look Tonight” also gets a make-over with an intricate arrangement by acclaimed bass clarinetist Todd Marcus.
Ms. Matheny-Katz will be accompanied by an all-star band of performers with large reputations in DC and beyond
Blues Alley, 1073 Wisconsin Avenue NW
