Album Notes
"A masterpiece of artistic riches, ensemble collaboration, and interpretive wisdom...the centerpiece of this wonderful world is Kate McGarry." ~ Jazz Police

THE SUBJECT TONIGHT IS LOVE is the debut trio album of critically acclaimed musicians and longtime friends Kate McGarry, Keith Ganz, and Gary Versace. The trio re-imagines beloved standards, sets music to the words of 14th century Sufi poet Hafiz, and mines the depths of McGarry’s soul-stirring originals. The result is a fresh, cinematic approach to jazz that invites listeners into the music through unexpected doorways.The formidable talents of these Grammy nominated musicians are in full bloom on this ambitious outing. Ganz shines on nylon, steel, electric and bass guitars while Versace moves masterfully between piano, electric keyboard, organ and accordion. Together they create a richly nuanced sonic canvas. McGarry’s voice rings true throughout, painting pictures that penetrate and illumine the human journey.

"...evocative lyricism, superb control and ample vocal and emotive range. Her voice would be iconic in any genre." ~ LA Weekly

“Ganz' virtuosity is undeniable, but there is no hint of pyrotechnics...knowledge never eclipses emotion.” ~ City Salvage Records

“Versace is endlessly inventive...he really has an extraordinary talent.” ~ Marian McPartland, Piano Jazz

"No matter how many liberties she takes with meter and interpretation, she exercises a fidelity to the meaning of the song....McGarry has the pure untrammeled voice of an ingenue who finds wonder in the simplest things." ~ Downbeat

"An exceptionally appealing blend of folk and jazz." ~ The Wall Street Journal

"Absolutely enchanting, lyrical and true from the first note to the last" ~ Ottawa Citizen

Ein Trio aus einem Guss!
Die Sängerin Kate McGarry ist längst arriviert. Doch noch immer favorisiert sie für ihre tief berührenden, und immer äusserst nuanceneichen Vokalisen Entourage und Rahmen einer kammermusikalischen Begleitformation. Ihre neueste Einspielung umkreist das ewige Thema "Liebe“ in einem tiefgründigen musikalischen Kaleidoskop von 12 Songs, sekundiert in Minimalbesetzung von ihrem Ehemann und Gitarrist Keith Ganz und dem hochtalentierten Tastentausendsassa Gary Versace (Piano, Keyboards, Orgel, Akkordeon). Eine bewegende, von A bis Z gelungene Einspielung!
