ENGLISHRecorded live at Rockwood Music Hall in December 2012, Gretchen Parlato 'Live in NYC' features repertoire from the Jazz chanteuse's critically acclaimed albums, 'The Lost and Found' and 'In a Dream'. The release also contains a bonus DVD of video footage from the performance.
After the success of her last studio album 'The Lost and Found', Gretchen Parlato releases her first live album on CD and DVD. The celebrated singer explains the process behind this album which she produced herself:
"I've always wanted to capture and share the magical energy, connection, and interaction of a live performance, singing with Taylor Eigsti, Alan Hampton, Burniss Earl Travis, Mark Guiliana, and Kendrick Scott has uplifted and inspired me, each of them supporting and challenging me as a singer.
Over these years of touring together, two specific bands have stood out to me: Taylor-Alan-Mark, and Taylor-Burniss-Kendrick. Each band has their own unique dynamic and approach to the music. I knew I had to feature both on this live CD/DVD. "
Personnel: Gretchen Parlato (voice, percussion), Taylor Eigsti (piano, keyboard), Alan Hampton, Burniss Earl Travis II (bass, voice), Mark Guiliana, Kendrick Scott (drums)
