Album Description

On October 29th, 2011, five amazing Jazz musicians took the stage for a benefit concert and the recording engineer captured it all in one single concert performance. The Halloween show was an absolute hit with the audience, as is evident by the hearty applause and Halloween fun that can be heard on this Live concert recording. This CD is the real deal without over-dubs commonly used in live recordings. "Marti assembled an outstanding group of supporting musicians. George Mitchell is a Portland native who has worked with Richie Cole, Sonny Stitt, Eddie Harris and Jon Hendricks. For the last two decades, he has been Diana Ross’ first-call pianist. Bassist Scott Steed has performed with Diane Schuur, Dawn Clement and Nancy King. Todd Strait was Karrin Allyson’s percussionist for many years, and he has performed on over 100 albums, including discs by Bill Charlap, Mike Metheny and Jay McShann. Together, these fine musicians offered a cohesive group sound behind Marti’s featured vocals. The creative team behind the final mix included recording engineer Steve Branson. Steve has a lengthy resume of audio mixing for live concerts and recordings. Steve has mixed for Sonny Rollins, Chick Corea, Don Cherry, toured with Dion and Donna Summer, Frankie Valli, Curtis Salgado and Robert Cray. Steve was the audio engineer who recorded the Grammy-nominated Robert Cray concert, Live From Across the Pond at the Royal Albert Hall.” - Tom Cunniffe This is Marti’s first CD as a leader, and it is a mark of her confidence that she opted to release a live concert as her debut album. Yet, the musical quality of the recording proves that she was right to do so. Let’s hope that this album marks the beginning of a bright career for Marti Mendenhall. Also featuring Aliyih Bristol on backup vocals.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
