ABOUT THE PROJECT…
DREAMSVILLE is a true musical collaboration between three accomplished artists. Cathy Segal-Garcia is a prolific recording artist, an exceptionally creative singer and a linchpin on the Los Angeles jazz scene. She’s also a singer who’s not afraid to take chances.
On DREAMSVILLE, her twelfth CD as a leader, she’s teamed up with two of the busiest, most sought after musicians on the Southern California jazz scene: guitarist Larry Koonse and pianist Josh Nelson.
The recording is replete with rich textures of sound as Segal-Garcia’s warm, dark vocals float over the lush guitar and piano accompaniment. The CD comprises a mix of standards, originals, and gems that are certainly off the beaten track, such as “Scarlatti Sonata in B Minor L33,” which was written by the Italian composer Domenico Scarlatti in the 18th century, as well as two tunes penned by Segal-Garcia.
The music on DREAMSVILLE is truly a dialogue between voice, piano, and guitar. The open, airy arrangements invite us to listen in on the conversation. There is no shouting, no grandstanding. There are only Cathy Segal-Garcia, Josh Nelson, and Larry Koonse, three sensitive musicians with the performance chops and profound connection to the music that transport us to a place of great emotional depth and beauty.
