Product Notes

Everyone knows that jazz is a cool, intellectual and rarified art form that can only be appreciated by true devotees. Or not. For ROSEMARY LOAR, jazz is a smorgasbord, a feast of incredible tastes and textures. In The Quando Swing, she makes it her business to give her listening audience the opportunity to sample each and every one of those exotic flavors. Rosemary can flit into a light and bouncy swing that includes a "word-scat" a la Annie Ross, lay back, soulful and sultry ("I Ain't Got Nothin' But the Blues"), or hypnotize you with a sublime version of a classic balled ("Prelude To A Kiss"). Rosemary also introduces us to some great new standards for our time: The "Wrong One" by David Friedman, the haunting "Remember" from Irish singing duo Zrazy, and Annie Lennox' brilliant "Cold." She gives us memorable arrangments of classic jazz standards, but is not afraid to turn our expectations on their heads. Rosemary adds one more flavor that is uniquely her own - a quirky and spontaneous sense of humor, seen in her rendition of Nellie Mc Kay's "I Wanna Get Married," and in where she takes Giaccomo Puccini's "Quando Me'n Vo," from the world famous opera La Boheme. Rosemary Loar fell in love with jazz the first time she heard Billie Holiday sing on a scratchy old 78 LP. And sing jazz is what she did when she first came to New York, working in many of New York's legendary downtown jazz spots. Now, five Broadway shows and numerous national tours and regional productions later, Rosemary returns to her first love. The Quando Swing is Loar's fourth CD. She is backed by music director/pianist, Frank Ponzio, accoustic bass player, Peter Donovan, (Audra Mc Donald, Barabar Cook), and drummer, Vito Lesczak (Andy Bley). Rosemary Loar was featured vocalist for the PBS production, New Year's Eve with Guy Lombardo, and has performed with the North Carolina, Orlando, Nelson Riddle and Peter Duchin Orchestras. She was the creator and co-producer of the Alternative Torch concert series of the New Voices Collective at New York's Symphony Space, which ran for three seasons. Rosemary is also a rock/pop composer/songwriter and has released three CDs of her original music : Alternative Torch, Through Women's Eyes, and Water From The Moon (which is also the score for her original musical of the same name and for which she wrote both the book and music.)
