After a decade of collaborative, and superlative, releases with large ensembles such as the WDR and Bob Mintzer Big Bands, the New York Voices return to their roots marking their 30th Anniversary with one of the most ambitious, accomplished undertakings in their esteemed catalog. Peter Eldridge, Lauren Kinhan, Darmon Meader & Kim Nazarian worked with revered producer Elliot Scheiner, applying their stamp to standards by Cole Porter & Al Jolson, modern jazz gems from Chick Corea & Fred Hersch, a deeply personal swing-era classic from Duke Ellington, songs by the Beatles & Ivan Lins, and a pair from Cuban classical composer, Ignacio Cervantes. Opening is a tour-de-force rendition of Al Jarreau’s lyrical contribution to Brubeck’s “Blue Rondo à la Turk,” which includes a new vocalese section based off Dave Brubeck’s and Paul Desmond’s original solos, with lyrics by Lauren Kinhan. Reminiscing in Tempo finds the quartet’s individual chops and their collective chemistry to be as powerful as ever, foretelling yet another creative and significant span for this landmark group.
