More concerned with the essence of a song than idiomatic limitations, vocalist Kate McGarry and guitarist Keith Ganz have managed to attract the attention of the jazz fans of tomorrow. Beyond their obvious affinity for swing, their eclectic repertoire ranging from Irving Berlin to The Cars, and her signature contralto convey a message with a crystal clarity that precludes the need for gimmick or effect. All that is left is undeniably honest music that transcends the boundaries of age or genre. With six records including the Grammy nominated, If Less Is More Nothing Is Everything, as well as the critically acclaimed Girl Talk, she has established herself to contemporary jazz as one of most moving and enigmatic voices. Ganz brings the same authority with his guitar.
