About this show

Marilyn Harris and Wrightwood Records presents a CD release party for her third solo effort, Round Trip, a new album with original jazz songs, kicking big band charts, killer solos and swingin' vocals. Inspired by the music of Count Basie, Maynard Ferguson, Neal Hefti, Buddy Rich, Billy May, Nelson Riddle, Hank Mancini, Johnny Mandel, the Tonight Show Band and Don Sebesky, this release features the L.A. Jazz All-Stars Big Band. The instrumental solos are by some of Hollywood's finest jazz musicians, including Bill Watrous, Pete Christlieb, Dan Higgins, Don Shelton, Jim Fox, Warren Luening and Andy Martin. Also featured is jazz legend Bob Dorough in a vocal duet with Marilyn. Round Trip features 12 songs, including: "Bebop High," Harris' name-dropping ode to the seminal music of the 40s and 50s, written with another noteworthy singer and songwriter, Mark Winkler...the gorgeous Marian McPartland melody "Twilight World," to which the legendary Johnny Mercer later added lyrics to create an underworked gem...and "Cool," which fits the grizzled tones of Bob Dorough so neatly that you can't believe he didn't write it himself...
