ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
So, there was this gig where a five-piece band was booked to play for three hours. No big deal, right? Only thing was, the bassist and vocalist were the only two to show up.
The show must go on, and all that, so they forged through and at the end looked at each other and said, "Damn, we should have recorded that."So into the studio they went to try and capture a bit of what had happened, and the result is this album.

Eleven tunes, all duos with just bass + vox, featuring bassist Kevin Hill and vocalist Karen Marguth.

Critic John McDonough, of DownBeat and NPR, writes this about the album: "It will fall to others to allot their own official praise to this, Karen's newest and perhaps most courageous work. I say that only because it takes a rather spunky singer to go into the world with only an acoustic bass man - the redoubtable Kevin Hill - at her side. But unlike Mary Tyler Moore's crusty old editor-boss, Ed Asner, I like spunk. Karen's has the benefits of voice, technique, and taste. They are the kind of refining influences that turn common spunk into high art."

The album covers an impressive range of material, from Cole Porter and Duke Ellington, to Phoebe Snow and Nellie Lutcher.

Take a listen, and discover why Jazz Magazine of France named Karen "one of the essential chanteuses of all time," and Cadence Magazine called her "indeed, a REAL jazz singer, with pinpoint intonation and a supple voice allowing her to phrase and scat with audacity."

You can also hear Karen's voice on Sirius XM's Real Jazz Channel, where several tunes from her last two albums are in steady rotation.
