More concerned with the essence of a song than idiomatic limitations, Grammy nominees Kate McGarry and guitarist Keith Ganz have managed to attract the attention of tomorrow’s jazz fans. Beyond their obvious affinity for swing, their eclectic repertoire ranging from Irving Berlin to The Cars, and her signature contralto convey a message with a crystal clarity that precludes the need for gimmick or effect. All that’s left is undeniably honest music that transcends the boundaries of age or genre. Hailed as, "Astute and sensitive"by the New York Times, and "An exceptionally appealing blend of folk and jazz" by The Wall St. Journal. Not to be missed!

"This duo has figured out how to create jazz arrangements of songs by Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan, Stephen Stills and Ric Ocasek without compromising either the jazz or the rock'n'roll. The substitute chords, elasticized rhythms and deconstructionist solos make this satisfying jazz, while the lyrics are delivered with such forceful urgency that it's still satisfying rock'n'roll. The songs are transformed but never obscured."     ~ Geoffrey Himes, Downbeat

McGarry’s unique musical gift is her ability to broadcast emotional transparency with undeniable and artless force. The singer one hears in McGarry’s work is gracious and endearing; she is vulnerable yet unbroken; she is always rapturous. With her musical and life collaborator, the guitarist Keith Ganz, McGarry has been forging a signature approach to standards and new compositions that is immediately fresh and very personal.   ~ Kurt Elling, Jazz Times Magazine
