Grammy nominated vocalist KATE McGARRY celebrates the release of her debut trio album The Subject Tonight Is Love feat with guitarist Keith Ganz and pianist Gary Versace. For their early Valentine’s CD release celebration, the acclaimed trio reimagines beloved standards, sets music to the words of 14th century Sufi poet Hafiz, and mines the depths of McGarry’s soul-stirring originals. The result is a fresh, cinematic approach to jazz that invites listeners into the music through unexpected doorways.
The formidable talents of these GRAMMY nominated musicians are in full bloom on this ambitious outing. Ganz shines on nylon, steel, electric and bass guitars while Versace moves masterfully between piano, electric keyboard, organ and accordion. Together they create a richly nuanced sonic canvas. McGarry’s voice rings true throughout, painting pictures that penetrate and illumine the human journey.
As an educator she has taught at New England Conservatory and currently serves on the faculty of Manhattan School of Music. In July of 2016 DOWNBEAT MAGAZINE 64th Critics Poll named McGarry the #1 Rising Star Female Vocalist.
