The level of excitement is palpably high round the studio this week: from October 10 through October 18 we are thrilled & honored to air the world premier of Kitty LaRoar & Nick Shankland’s new work – Kitty at Abbey Road. Always divinely turned out for their gigs, this duo presents a rare, delicious combination of sophisticated charm & virtuoso chops.
They put their sublime stamp on Skylark, Around the World, & Mood Indigo in covers showcasing Mme. LaRoar’s exquisite pipes (cognoscenti will recognize her signature brush work), and M. Shankland’s formidable keyboard skill. Their signature stylings here range from true & clear to silken, swinging scat. Nemo, a Shankland composition, is an elegant, bluesy ballad – a cashmere & velvet tone poem.
Join us and be delighted as this posh jazz chanteuse & swank stride master put their fabulous gifts to work!
