Exquisite jazz vocal wizardry Cathy Segal-Garcia – Dreamsville

Exquisite jazz vocal wizardry Cathy Segal-Garcia – DREAMSVILLE:  My most recent review of Cathy’s exquisite jazz vocal wizardry was for her “The Jazz Chamber” album, which got very high marks from my ears… in fact, in order to get to know her just a bit better, watch this great trailer for that album…

…you will want to be sure to SUBSCRIBE to Cathy’s YouTube channel, where you’ll find many exciting videos of her live performances, vocal workshops and much, much more… I did.

On the new album, I was especially impressed with her rendition of an old Horace Silver tune, “Lonely Woman” (with Leonard Feather’s lyrics)… Cathy’s players, Josh Nelson on piano, and guitarist Larry Koonse, compliment her intriguing vocal in most magical fashion!

The intro to the classic “September In The Rain” features a fantastic duo between Josh & Larry, and when Cathy sings her vocal, you’ll hear why I consider her a vocal master, to be sure. There’s a lighthearted tone from all the players throughout the piece.

Of the eleven stunning tracks Cathy offers up for your aural enjoyment, it is (clearly) the opener, “Dreamsville“, by Henry Mancini, that won my vote for personal favorite…. if you’ve never been in “dream state” – you WILL be as you listen to Cathy performing this magic piece of music!

I give Cathy and her fellow players a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED rating, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) rating of 4.99 for this stunning jazz vocal album.    Get more information on Cathy’s website.           Rotcod Zzaj
