Album Notes
Read below for the story as to why this lovely track was NOT included on the CD "Wild Women of Song: Great Gal Composers of the Jazz Era" by Pamela Rose

Gender/Bender – or Why You Shouldn’t Rely on the Internet
by Pamela Rose

In the early months of research while recording “Wild Women of Song: Great Gal Composers of the Jazz Era”, I came across an online list of “Women Jazz Composers”. The other cited many names I knew, but some I didn’t, such as Marcy Klauber.
Michael Feinstein generously sent lead sheets of some of the unfamiliar titles to my producer, Leslie Ann Jones. When we played through Marcy Klauber’s “I Get the Blues When it Rains”, Leslie had the inspiration to give the song a closely harmonized vocal part (a la Hi-Lo’s or Mel-Tones). Arranger Matt Catingub quickly seized upon the idea, and the result was a track that made all of us smile when we heard it. The tight, close harmonies, sung and doubletracked by Matt Catingub and vocalist Gayle Wilhelm, just soared.
It was one of my favorite tracks.
The day before we sent the finished, sequenced and mastered CD and artwork off to be manufactured, I received an email from pianist and music historian Peter Mintun. I had sent him an advance copy the week before. After some polite words about the songs and CD, he added: “Marcy Klauber’s family will be no doubt surprised to find that he is a woman”.
A bad day of furious fact checking confirmed this fact. But it wasn’t easy – every article about him was entirely gender non-specific (and filled with many inaccuracies about this screen play and song writer). The song was yanked, the CD re-sequenced, mastered and the artwork changed.
I still love the arrangement and the vocals. If you’d like to buy this track, here’s your big chance!
