"THE MOMENT" 

 featuring Cathy Segal-Garcia   

CD RELEASE PARTY

"Veteran art chick leads a jazzy outing that flies under the radar in left field. A subtle yet captivating feel that transcends the normal expectations of jazz."

Cathy Segal-Garcia has lived and worked in L.A. since the mid 70's. Over these many years, she's worked with hundreds of musicians, building musical and personal relationships. Known as a "musician's singer", one of her solid directions is in the modern jazz genre. The musicians in "The Moment" not only reflect her taste in that genre, but each commands huge respect amongst their peers.

This particular grouping came together at the beginning of 2012. Cathy and Gary Fukushima had performed many duo gigs together, finding it intriguing to combine each other's sense of rhythm (not on the downbeat!) and harmonic adventuring. This group has no bass player, and Gary plays mostly keyboard in it, not acoustic piano.

Add to that the Scofield-like guitar of Jeff Richman, the sought after, amazing and beautiful tenor sax of Chuck Manning. And then add in the crazy and delightful multi-percussionist Brad Dutz. Give everyone a form to play in, and then set them all to create in the moment. You get "The Moment"!
