Karen Listed Among Bay Area’s Best Jazz Artists
The Bay Area News Group, which includes the Oakland Tribune, the San Jose Mercury News, and The Times, recently published an article entitled “Bay Area jazz hit right notes in 2015,” in which correspondent Andrew Gilbert describes some of his favorite albums of the year.
Within the article, he writes this:
“Livermore vocalist Karen Marguth offers a minimalist vision on ‘Just You, Just Me.’ Clocking in at just 37 minutes (which was a respectable running time in the LP era), she performs a thrilling high-wire act backed only by bassist Kevin Hill. Focusing on vintage standards like ‘You’d Be So Nice to Come Home To’ and ‘Imagination’ and some wonderful oddball selections like Phoebe Snow’s ‘Harpo’s Blues’ and Nellie Lutcher’s ‘Baby What’s Your Alibi,’ Marguth navigates the songs with style and derring-do.”
