Internationally-acclaimed artist and humanitarian KATHERINE FARNHAM, aka 'KOOL KAT' - has released a stunning and smoking-hot collection of songs on her new LP “Vintage”. Featuring Grammy-winning saxophonist Kirk Whalum, Latin Grammy winning flutist Nestor Torres and four-time Grammy-Nominated guitarist Denny Jiosa, Vintage also has a world- class production team that has worked with several legendary vocalists. “I feel deeply humbled and blessed to have the opportunity to work with such an incredible team. Nestor’s lines are insanely accurate and exploding with passion. Denny’s guitar danced, sang and cried and said a thousand words. And Kirk - what a human being. He embodies the qualities of focus, greatness and cool and somehow manages to make it all look easy.” The singer-songwriter-pianist has channelled her intense passion into an album combining elements of jazz, R&B, and adult contemporary.
Kool Kat's unique version My Funky Valentine proves that she is a world- class performer with a multi-octave voice that swoops, swirls and dances through this timeless melody. Her piano-playing is also ever-present in this fan favorite and she presents a solid solo, backed by upright bass and a steady SoulJazz rhythm.
With equal doses class and angst, rave reviews in three languages and a well-crafted portfolio of original material, the classically-trained artist creates music expressing deep longing, passion, adventure and a sense of mystery. Combining a multi-octave voice with world-class musicianship and a poet’s heart, Kool Kat possesses both charisma and substance
