Jazz Standard, New York, NY
Kate McGarry is one of her generation's most individual and influential singers, one who “embraces jazz’s freedom yet points the genre toward a future that’s as fresh and thrilling as its past." (The Nashville Scene) With Girl Talk, her fifth Palmetto Records CD due out 4/10, she pays homage to some of the great women of the jazz vocal tradition, including Betty Carter, Sheila Jordan, and Carmen McRae. Here Kate puts her own inimitable spin on such classic songs as “We Kiss In A Shadow,” “The Man I Love,” and (in a dream duet with Kurt Elling) the Brazilian classic “O Cantador.” Kate McGarry says: “Starry-eyed admiration and gratitude for our strong lineage of visionary jazz women is what fueled the making of Girl Talk…These icons were co–creators of the great art of jazz singing at a time in our nation's history when women's voices and dreams were so easily silenced or devalued.”
