ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
On July 14, 2014 Eugene Marlow’s MEII Enterprises indie label launched the first in a series of digital only, mini-albums under the umbrella “In Their Own Voice” title. The first album in the series features French lyricist/songstress Amelie Cherubin (see bio below) on three tracks with original music by composer/producer Eugene Marlow (see bio below). Marlow’s Heritage Ensemble is featured. The July 14, 2014 release date for this first mini-album coincides with Bastille Day, the equivalent of France’s Independence Day, an annual event celebrated in several parts of the world, including many cities in the United States. The “In Their Own Voice (Vol. I)” series marks the first time composer/arranger Eugene Marlow has collaborated with a lyricist/vocalist, such as Amelie Cherubin (Paris, France).

Under his indie MEII Enterprises label, he has previously produced eight CDs of original compositions and arrangements. He is the leader (piano) and founder of The Heritage Ensemble, a quintet that performs his arrangements and original compositions of Hebraic melodies in various jazz, Afro-Caribbean and Brazilian styles.

Three of Marlow’s big band charts appear on several Grammy-nominated albums. “El Aché de Sanabria” appears on Bobby Sanabria’s Grammy-nominated album “Big Band Urban Folktales” (2007 Jazzheads). His reconstruction and arrangement of “Me Acuerdo De Ti,” originally recorded by Tito Puente and Celia Cruz, appears on the Latin-Grammy nominated “Tito Puente Masterworks Live!” recorded by the Manhattan School of Music Afro-Cuban Jazz Orchestra (Jazzheads 2011). “Broken Heart” appears on the 2012 Grammy-nominated “Multiverse” album, also from Maestro Sanabria (Jazzheads 2012). “Let There Be Swing” appears on the recently released “Que Viva Harlem” album featuring the Manhattan School of Music Afro-Cuban Jazz Orchestra (Jazzheads 2014). This album received 4 ½ stars from Downbeat.

His three pieces for flute, viola, and double bass were premiered by the Bateira Trio in late 2013. His string quintet entitled “Undiminished” was premiered by the Bleeker Ensemble in April 2014.

Amelie Cherubin, Lyricist/Vocalist

Amelie Cherubin (lyricist/vocalist) is a warm, inviting French singer/lyricist who charms audiences with her sweet, velvety voice. Classically trained in her native city of Paris, France, Ms. Cherubin continues to expand her repertoire by working and performing with musicians in pop, electro, experimental, chanson, jazz, and contemporary music. She is currently a member of the jazz scene, performing in jazz clubs in Paris after three great years in Manhattan. She performed with her friends Cyrille Aimee and David Reinhart who introduced her to the authentic gypsy jazz spirit. Singer/lyricist Marie Busato and her beautiful song writing led Amélie to the heart of French chanson. Encouraged by Michelle Hendricks as well as Claudia Solal, she devotes her heart and soul to the art of singing and its various aspects.

In Paris she has performed at: Rendez-vous des amis, Zic Zinc, Café K, Chez Cosette, La Mer à Boire, Le NUmide, Les trois Chapeaux, Le Franc Pinot, Hop Hop Hop, Ailleurs Studio, La Boule Noire, CUIP, Madelaine Bastille, Le Canapé, Centre Social Belliard, and Jazz Experience (with pianist Thuryn Mitchel).

In New York (2008-2010) she performed at: Caffe Vivaldi, Bowery Wine Bar, Kyon, Cupping Room (with Cyrille Aimée), and Smalls Jazz Club.

In addition to the three compositions created and recorded with composer/pianist Eugene Marlow in 2010, Ms. Cherubin has recorded an album with Lady Chatterton (2008), a demo album jazz with pianist Thuryn Mitchell (2008), an experimental project with Thuryn Mitchell (for the Ecole d’art comtemporain de CergyPontoise, 2008), and an experimental piece of electro-accousmatic music for the Conservatoire du Blanc-Mesnil (supervised by Philipe Leroux, composer and researcher at IRCAM, Institute of Musical Research, 2005).

Ms. Cherubin earned a bachelors degree in French literature from La Sorbonne Nouvelle, Paris III in 2000, and a master’s degree in literature and cinema from La Sorbonne Nouvelle Paris III/ Université de Rouen in 2002
