Rebecca Martin’s Collaborative Group with Guillermo Klein Called UPSTATE in New York Times.
UPSTATE in Today’s New York Times Arts & Leisure Section.
“BACK IN TOWN WITH TRICKY TUNES: A composer doesn’t necessarily mean a songwriter, especially in Jazz. Guillermo Klein, originally from Argentina, who has written brilliantly for his jazz groups in New York and Barcelona since the mid-90’s, never made a distinction. He creates pieces full of tricky counterpoint and canon, but h also writes emotionally direct, harmonically complex, circular songs to bee sung by himself and others….Not long ago, Mr. Klein moved back to the New York area and started collaborating with the singer Rebecca Martin and the bassist Larry Grenadier. The idea was to put lyrics to Mr. Klein’s compositions, but the repertory expanded to include other composer’s work, too. At the Rockwood Music Hall on Wednesday’s in February.”
The group is set to record in May of 2015 joined by the drummer Jeff Ballard. Recorded and Produced by Pete Rende.
