Rebecca Martin will celebrate the release of her “exquisite” (NPRs Weekend All Things Considered) new album When I Was Long Ago (Sunnyside Records) on Thursday, December 16 at the Jazz Standard, 116 East 27th Street, New York, NY. Sets are at 7:30 and 9:30, and tickets are $20.00. Reservations can be made at 212-576-2232 or via Ticketweb.com
Martin will be accompanied by bassist Larry Grenadier (Brad Mehldau Trio, Pat Metheny) and saxophonist Bill McHenry (Guillermo Klein, Paul Motian), who are also featured on the album.
When she set out to record her new album of standards, Martin resolved to seek out each songs original vocal read and to unearth their original arrangements and lost verses.
The resulting collection of eleven songs is most extraordinary, absolutely delightful and thoroughly unforgettable, (All About Jazz) and a perfect showcase for Martins warm, unguarded voice (New York Times).
In his four-star review of When I Was Long Ago in renowned French magazine Telerama, critic Michel Contat writes that Martin raises the bar with this album, and praises her voice, which he pronounces as expressive as Joni Mitchells.
