Lyn Stanley To Perform At Vitello’s Jazz Club Friday, December 6th
Los Angeles, CA- Critically-acclaimed debut Jazz Vocalist Lyn Stanley will be performing with her quintet at Vitello’s Jazz Club in Studio City on Friday, December 6th, at 8pm. Stanley’s performance will feature songs from her recently released CD, Lost In Romance. Accompanying Stanley will be Bill Canto on piano, Kevin Axt on bass, Kendall Kay on drums, Rickey Woodard on tenor saxophone and Grant Geissman on guitar. 1946 – 1959
Lost In Romance was released August 20th to widespread critical acclaim and airplay both across the country and internationally. A passionate ode to the music and romance of another era, Lost In Romance is also a tribute to not only the Great American Songbook, but Stanley’s friend and mentor, the late legendary world-class jazz pianist Paul Smith, whom she credits with launching her career as a singer. The CD is a favorite of Los Angeles radio station KKJZ’s deejay Bubba Jackson, and Stanley is supporting the station with various fundraisers and promotional giveaways throughout November and December.
Featuring 15 songs that trace the arc of romance, the idea behind the selections, said Stanley, “Is to create a storyline via the song list and integrate elements of my background as a ballroom dancer through rhythms, tempos and lyrical themes. Beginning with Irving Berlins’ classic “Change Partners” which sets the stage and ending with “The Last Dance” by Sammy Cahn and Jimmy Van Heusen, almost every song on the album has a related dance rhythm and tempo for dancers.
Featured players on Lost In Romance include Kevin Axt, Gilbert Castellanos, Jim DeJulio, Bernie Dresel, Jeff Hamilton, Tamir Hendelman, Trey Henry, Paul Kreibich, Mike Lang, Llew Matthews, Bob McChesney, Thom Rotella and Bob Sheppard – all of whom perform in various configurations on the album in line with the artist’s belief that the songs would benefit from an ever-changing combination of different player’s interpretations. Lost In Romance was engineered by Tommy Vacari, mixed by 22-time Grammy Award-winner Al Schmitt and mastered by the legendary Grammy-winning Bernie Grundman. In fact, it was Grundman who suggested the 180gram/45RPM LP vinyl pressing which ensued at Pallas in Germany..
Tickets for the show at Vitello’s are $20.00 each with a 2-drink or dinner minimum. For reservations, please call 818-769-0905. A portion of Lyn’s proceeds from the show will benefit the Holiday Humane Society Clinic, a nonprofit animal clinic in North Hollywood.
