12:00am [12:00am] LEFTOVER DREAMS (cont.)
Description:
“Swingin’ Jazz”

Tony Marcus - guitar/ vocals
Patrice Haan - vocals
Jeff Sanford - sax

Tony Marcus, a longtime regular on the Bay Area music scene, is perhaps best known for his work with R. Crumb & the Cheap Suit Serenaders and Cats & Jammers. He toured Japan in April 2004 with Geoff Muldaur, on whose most recent CD he also performs. Musically, Leftover Dreams performs standards (and not-so-standards) of the Great American Songbook combined with witty and imaginative vocal arrangements featuring Patrice Haan's sultry and seductive voice. Marcus plays guitar and sings as well, and the combination creates an intriguing mix of moody ballads, jumping swingers and unabashedly romantic love songs. Added to the brew are the occasional quirky originals, which spring from the same tradition but take a left turn somewhere.

Patrice Haan has an ear for melody, a heart for feelings and a gift for lyrics. She combines it all into beautiful music, whether singing and playing her own songs or interpreting others' creations.

The vocal harmonies and sparse but memorable accompaniment have drawn praise from such as Richard Hadlock, author of Jazz Masters of the 20s and host of the radio show The Annals of Jazz, who says " Singers Patrice Haan and Tony Marcus (also an ace guitarist) do something unusual: they treat often neglected popular songs with respect, restraint and unerring good taste ". Recently the group was featured on NPRs All Songs Considered, where its rendition of Teach Me Tonight won the weekly listeners poll.
