Album Notes
Passionate ... Personal ... Engaging ... Life-Affirming ... Joy Katzen-Guthrie's vibrant music and one-of-a-kind performances inspire and uplift with a message of insight, life experience, and worldwide unity and harmony from generation to generation.

Intimate acoustic cabaret and film/stage Standards, with thoughtful and moving new interpretations of classics from the American Popular Songbook, including selections by Frank Loesser & Burton lane, James Van Heusen & Jimmy Burke, Jacques Brel, Cole Porter, Jay Livingston & Ray Evans, Nora Bayes & Jack Norworth, Mack Gordon & Harry Warren, Duke Ellington, Sholom Secunda and Sammy Cahn, Herb Magidson & Carl Sigman, and more. Katzen-Guthrie's own intimate arrangements and interpretations of the complete (including introductory verses) songs from Vaudeville, Tin Pan Alley, Your Hit Parade, Broadway, and Hollywood in these Favorite Melody Volume 1 and Volume 2 compilations have been appreciated by individuals of every age. Hearing these songs for the first time or being reintroduced to them in a manner that breathes with the integrity of the music and lyrics has brought enormous enjoyment and special memories of these classic musical standards.

Performer and Recording Artist, Composer/Lyricist, Pianist, and Vocalist for 27 years, Joy uniquely weaves history and storytelling with traditional, contemporary, and original songs from pop, stage, film, and world genres that celebrate the human spirit. Says Donna Klein, founder of Tampa Bay's Women Musicians Alliance: "Joy is a marvel on the keyboard, making her playing seem effortless. Her compositions, as well as her adaptations of others' songs, reflect the summation that it is her life. When she sits down at the keyboard, starts playing, smiles that warm smile of hers and sings to your heart, well it's just inspirational!"

"Joy Katzen-Guthrie is a gifted musician who will absolutely astound you with her talent. Listening to her perform and watching how she brings all the elements of music and voice together often leaves me breathless She puts an energy into her music that can\'t help but thrill those who are listening. She is a fantastic performer." ~Robert Moffa, Composer/Arranger and Founder, American Ideals Foundation, Inc.

Joy's music is designed as an inner retreat and an outer celebration. Those who have heard her recordings and concerts have described the many ways in which her music has been beneficial - a portal to healing and creativity, joy, support, and renewal. Her own arrangements and interpretations of full (including introductory verses) classic songs from Hit Parade, Vaudeville & Tin Pan Alley, Broadway and film in her Favorite Melody Vol. 1 and Vol. 2 recordings have been loved by individuals of every age. Hearing these songs for the first time or being reintroduced to them in a manner that breathes with the integrity of the music and lyrics has brought enormous enjoyment and special memories of these classic musical moments. SoulStream has provided comfort, relaxation, and mental release to countless listeners who described sleepless nights and stress-filled days prior to hearing it. Passages and A Steadfast Bridge have been used in gatherings, worship, hospitals and hospices, at births, funerals, reunions, rallies for social action, in theatre and events of every scope. Her first 3 releases of Jewish liturgical, Israeli, and Yiddish music - Seasons of Joy, The Heart of Ancient Promise, and How Good and How Pleasant have been loved in homes, schools, hospitals, communal living facilities, synagogues and many non-Jewish congregations, as well as life cycle events of every kind by individuals of all faiths.

A Memphis, Tennessee native, Joy has made her home in the Tampa Bay area since 1981. Read much more about her work, study, recording studio, and programs at her Official Website. Her life has been devoted to writing, concertizing, speaking, and communicating the power of magnificent music.
