ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Pianist, vocalist, composer and arranger Amy K Bormet’s debut CD, Striking, blends melodically-driven jazz pop with spontaneous and creative improvisation. The quintet features versatile players active in jazz, gospel, and indie rock, yet firmly commited to exploratory music. Bormet’s compositions are influenced by the performers she surrounds herself with, filled with surprises and innovative arrangements.

“We have been tracking her career as she has been making her way, as her star is on the rise...Amy Bormet’s Striking is the name of her group, and an apt description of Bormet herself.” - Kevin Struthers, Director of Jazz Programming at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts

“On her debut solo release, Striking, pianist and vocalist Amy K Bormet blends elements that don’t often come together: Original songs that have a distinct pop sensibility mesh with considerable jazz chops from Bormet and her fellow instrumentalists...” -CapitalBop

“Bormet performed a lovely set of original music with her “Striking” quintet, and often doubled on vocals in a high voice evocative of 1930s jazz singers."
-Jazztimes review of Mary Lou Williams Jazz Festival performance at the Kennedy Center

“If you know your D.C. jazz, you almost certainly know pianist Amy K. Bormet. She's the backbone of the Bohemian Caverns Jazz Orchestra; the architect of (the) Washington Women In Jazz Festival; a favorite accompanist for a variety of leaders, bands, and styles; a surprisingly accomplished singer; and one of the funniest people in town. What you may not know is that she's a formidable composer and arranger, too. That's certainly what you'll find if you give a listen to her new self-released album, Striking: It's an expertly played, handsomely sung record of mostly her own work (and a few standards) that shows not only her technical chops but a remarkable ear for harmony—and, more subtly, a delectable rhythmic sense and precision.”- Washington City Paper
