Marcus Goldhaber Says Take Me Anywhere With New CD

Marcus Goldhaber takes a variety of classic and original jazz tunes and turns them into gold on his new release Take Me Anywhere. As the title suggest the sounds on the new album can literally take you anywhere at any time. This timeless music with the sounds of traditional jazz backed by smooth and reflective vocalizations is reminiscent of early Frank Sinatra and Harry Connick Jr., As Marcus was growing up, his mother would call him over to the piano to teach him a new song every night. During this time he listened to a wide range of music that included Robert Smith, Jim Morrison, Sarah Vaughn, Elton John, Claude Debussy, Eddie Vedder, and Chet Baker, but at night he'd always go right back to the piano with his mom after dinner.

Because of his exposure to music at an early age and the ability to learn the songs on the piano, today he is right at home with jazz and feels a kinship with genre interpreting the songs of Dorothy Fields, Sammy Cahn, Harold Arlen, Jimmy Van Heusen, Sammy Fain, and many others.

Marcus Goldhaber offers listeners the perfect blend of yesterday and today, yet with a modern approach that stays true to the style of his music.

Take My Anywhere comes with promise of bringing these great tunes back to the younger generation so they too can enjoy their timelessness and pass them on the their families.

"What a wonderful straight-ahead jazz vocalist from Buffalo; part Chet Baker meets a breathier Bobby Darin. Strong arrangements of some jazz standard classics and plenty of strong originals, especially the swinging lilt of "Take Me" with Hendrik Meurkens's tasteful harmonica solo. Jon Davis and his trio play with just enough sauce to keep the songs from dragging." -Culture Catch on "Take Me Anywhere" by Marcus Goldhaber and The Jon Davis Trio.
