The Jazz Chamber

At the urging of her champion Dan Davilla, Cathy recently fulfilled a goal long on her bucket list: recording with a chamber orchestra... The project gave Cathy an opportunity to sing duets with three of her favorite singers and musical friends. The result is a continually intriguing set that stands out among her 11 CDs as a leader. -Scott Yanow
