Irene Atman releases new CD titled "New York Rendezvous" with jazz greats Frank Kimbrough on piano, Jay Anderson on bass, Matt Wilson on drums, Joel Frahm on saxophone

It’s been quite a year for Canadian recording artist Irene Atman who recently relocated to New York City from her hometown of Toronto to record her latest CD titled “New York Rendezvous”. Irene follows her highly acclaimed self-titled debut of 2007 with this latest release, backed by the finest jazz musicians on the New York scene today - Frank Kimbrough on piano, Jay Anderson on bass, Matt Wilson on drums and Joel Frahm on saxophone.

The disc’s title “New York Rendezvous” is just that – the reunion of Irene Atman and Frank Kimbrough after a couple of dozen years along different musical roads. Now together in New York , with Frank acting as musical director and co-producer of the CD, Irene Atman is being hailed as “one of the finest singers around, gifted with a voice that allows her to reach high notes with ease, revealing a cool and enticing style that tenderizes the lyrics with a touch of class”. (All about Jazz)

In a recent interview with Jazz Review, Susan Frances says, “Atman has a voice that was divined to sing jazz just as assuredly as was Tony Bennett, Shirley Bassey, Vicki Carr, or any other vocalist born with the timeless elegance that Atman possesses. She enables audiences to feel the lyrics and become a part of the stories being told in the songs.”

Born in Toronto , Irene is also an accomplished pianist. Her love for classic jazz started early. “I always say, that my greatest inspiration came from my father’s fruit cellar,” she said. As a child, she brought up a box of old records from the basement and asked her father to play them for her. “Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Doris Day. All of the greats”, she recalled. “I just loved them”.


At 19, while studying history at the University of Toronto , Atman credits that time as the official start of her professional career. During those years in Toronto , Irene sang with the Stan Hiltz Orchestra, recorded with the Boss Brass, and performed with the legendary Tony Bennett. She has also performed with jazz luminaries Guido Basso, Dave Young, Terry Clarke and Peter Appleyard. Last year, Irene toured Australia and Japan where she performed at the Canadian embassy in Tokyo with Makoto Ozone and Holly Cole for a Tribute to Oscar Peterson.

Upcoming performances in ’09 will see Irene performing at New York’s legendary supper club Feinstein’s at Loews Regency on October 25th, where she will be joined by jazz greats Frank Kimbrough on piano, Jay Anderson on bass and Joel Frahm on saxophone

Jaijai, what a wonderful mission you've undertaken to create such a place for artistic minds to meet and share their hearts. A place to renew faded determinations, and revive lessened momentums. A place to display our wares and reconfirm to one another that we actually are on the right track.

I commend you, Jaijai, for caring so much that you created this castle of the heart for all of us. I want to share my praise for all of the new friends as well as old friends that I've met and will meet here in our castle. Here we can garnish the where-with-all, the strength, the conviction, and the selflessness through our symbiosis, to share our gift to the world with an unbiased agenda.

My mentor, Daisaku Ikeda says of art: "A beautiful flower delights and refreshes the hearts of all people equally, no matter what soil it grows in. That is the power of beauty. The same is true of great art. It is this spirit that the German poet Heinrich Heine sang of when he wrote that once the peapod bursts open, the sugar peas inside are for everyone to enjoy."

Let's be audacious, my friends!
