Latest release: “Three Days of the Condor”

“Three Days of the Condor” released June 26, 2019. “Three Days of the Condor” packs a musical punch with modern appeal. The song is an up-to-the-minute interpretation of the classic movie title track composed by ten-time Grammy Award winner Dave Grusin for the 1975 spy thriller starring Robert Redford and Faye Dunaway.

With vocals by award-winning jazz composer and singer Kathy Sanborn, “Three Days of the Condor” features MASA on guitar and strings, Vahagn Stepanyan on rhodes, Glenn Welman on drums and percussion, Jackie Bertone on percussion, Hector Ruano on bass, and Marcus Mitchell and Douglas Lira on saxophones. Produced by Matthew Shell, “Three Days of the Condor” will introduce a new generation to the music of Dave Grusin while entertaining listeners with its infectious jazz grooves and cutting-edge arrangements.

“Love Will Light the Way”

“Love Will Light the Way” released September 1, 2018. The optimistic song is a collaboration with Grammy nominee guitarist MASA and acclaimed producer Matthew Shell. Guest musicians include Vahagn Stepanyan on keyboards and upright bass; Glenn Welman on drums; and Matt Veirs on electronic percussion.

The critics say . . .

“Even before putting this on the player one can’t help but be impressed by the lushness of the presentation. This digipak contains a lot of information about Kathy and her producer Keerthy Narayanan (who also is her arranger), commentary by multi-Grammy & Latin Grammy award winner Kabir Sehgal, photos and information on all the musicians involved, and a booklet containing all the lyrics. One gets the impression that this is a release of quality, and that is only reinforced as the music comes out of the speakers. This is Kathy’s eighth album, and unlike many other artists she isn’t revisiting songs from times gone by, but instead is presenting an album of originals, all her own work.

This is cool jazz, where the mood is reflective and cozy, where each note and nuance has an important part to play and where the vocals are never forced and at times are almost languorous

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
