Featuring Cathy Segal-Garcia, Josh Nelson on piano, and Larry Koonse on guitar.
“This trio setting, comprised of Voice, piano and guitar creates an openness and spaciousness in the arrangements which commands the listeners attention, not by an onslaught of sound but by the breathless expectation of what will happen next. Each instrument plays an integral part in filling out the soundscape yet the playing is imbued with a generosity of spirit which is more a conversation than the usual architecture of band and singer. ” ~~ Talley Sherwood, engineer

Cathy Segal-Garcia, Larry Koonse, Josh Nelson appearing at the Segerstrom Arts Center in O.C.
We are the main artists: 8:00 – 9:00 600 town center drive, costa mesa, ca 92626 ALL ABOUT JAZZ:
Cathy Segal-Garcia, Larry Koonse & Josh Nelson Dreamsville Dash Hoffman Records 2019 Following up her The Jazz Chamber (Dash Hoffman, 2018), singer Cathy Segal-Garcia pares things down to a trio, with guitarist Larry Koonse and pianist Josh Nelson, for Dreamsville. Segal-Garcia, a rarified vocalist in any format, finds a plush comfort zone with these two singular players. This is a gentle recording that lives up to it somnolent title. There are no fireworks to be found among these beautifully disparate songs, only quiet ruminations, thoughtfully sung and performed by this obviously empathic trio. In the title song, Koonse and Nelson establish a method that expands throughout the eleven selections of the disc. While Koonse plays palm-muted single-note figures, Nelson summons the melodies from the compositions, with occasional forays into clever counterpoint between guitar and piano. This method is also demonstrated in an ebullient performance of “September in the Rain.” The trio extends its counterpoint study to a logical conclusion on a vocalese performance of Domenico Scarlatti’s Keyboard Sonata in B minor (L. 33). The performance is a pensive one, weaving together patches of Baroque precision and subtle impressionism. Segal-Garcia also courageously covers Horace Silver’s “Lonely Woman” (complete with Leonard Feather lyrics) as a drifting ballad, devoid of any hard bop undertones. The singer proves a master of direction when casting songs on the whim of her fertile creativity. The guitar-piano combination is provocative and effective for Segal-Garcia’s project. Writers like to call Segal-Garcia a “singer’s singer.” I can think of nothing better.

Thursday July 25th is Cathy’s residency at the L.A. Athletics Club
The 4th Thursday of the month features Cathy & the great jazz musicians (usually Mark Massey, Dave Ross, Nolan Shaheed, Ricky Woodard) and the creator of the “Living Jazz Legends”, Linda Morgan, who will be giving a”Living Legends Award” to one or two of our jazz treasures…TBA.

Workshop for Vocalists & Instrumentalists:
Judy Wexler – MAKING & MARKETING YOUR CD: KEYS TO SUCCESS
11:30 AM 3:00 PM -Granada hills, CA 91344
FEE: $60
MAKING & MARKETING YOUR CD: KEYS TO SUCCESS
You’re making a CD because you’re an artist who wants to share your vision. You’re ready to invest a lot of time, energy, heart and soul — and MONEY — in your project, and you want to make sure it gets the maximum possible exposure. The fact is, making and distributing a CD is both an artistic venture and a business. YOUR MARKETING PLAN BEGINS THE MOMENT YOU COMMIT TO MAKING A NEW CD. In this seminar, we explore the CD business from soup to nuts and the choices you can make right from the start to make sure your project is successful. We’ll discuss topics like budgeting, choosing a repertoire that’s both artistically and commercially viable, working with a producer, the benefits and drawbacks of using a record label, CD package design (do’s and don’ts) the ins and outs of publicity & radio promotion, social media marketing, Spotify playlists, and much more.
Judy Wexler has headlined jazz festivals performing arts centers and major clubs nationally and internationally. She has released five CDs which have all topped the national JazzWeek radio charts as well as garnering critical acclaim in DownBeat and JazzTimes and a profile on NPR.
