DARYL SHERMAN with HOUSTON PERSON and JAY LEONHART Wednesday, September 26th Sets 8 & 10 PM JAZZ at KITANO

Manhattan's venerable singer-pianist Daryl Sherman teams with her two illustrious longtime colleagues Houston Person, tenor sax and Jay Leonhart, bass for a fun-filled, high spirited autumnal songfest. She'll also include material from her highly praised new CD "Lost In A Crowded Place."

Lost In A Crowded Place
(new summer 2018 release Audiophile 357)

"I would have singers study her phrasing on this disc- that wonderful science of balancing song and conversation, adherence to the melody and improvisation. How she does it from song to song, from chorus to chorus …making each song its own complete emotional and intellectual statement like an aural short story…is something quite remarkable." - Michael Steinman, JAZZ LIVES

"Daryl: I listened to your album today and enjoyed it very much, all elements. Particularly the first track, your remarkable song, 'The Land Of Just We Two.' Lovely piece. Congrats all around."- Dick Hyman

"Unique choice of tunes, musicians are super, musical joy…congrats on your 5 star recording!"
- Frank Wilner, WNHN FM

"Lost In A Crowded Place' is a marvelous CD. Daryl is in top form, the band sounds great, and the songs she selected are lovely too, some quite rare..the equivalent of 18K gold. Congratulations!" – Carol Sloane

"In addition to being a fine singer who knows how to extract the essence of each lyric, and a wonderful jazz pianist, Sherman is also adept at creating appealing melodies and literate lyrics. "The Land Of Just We Two" is a charmer and her hip lyrics for the Turk Mauro tune "Turkquoise" should find homes in the repertoire of other jazz-oriented vocalists." – Joe Lang, Jersey Jazz Magazine

"Ms. Sherman is very much in prime form throughout. She performs superior mostly little-played standards, forgotten gems such as Barbara Carroll's title song and Louis Armstrong's "If We Never Meet Again". Her tender yet quietly expressive voice sometimes hints at Mildred Bailey or Lee Wiley but sounds very much like herself while her piano playing is fluent and creative swing. This highly recommended set is *****!"
- Scott Yanow, LA JAZZ SCENE
