Cathy Segal-Garcia & Yoonseung Cho – BohemianMarch 6, 2012 / No Comments / Tags: Bohemian, cathy seagal-garcia, thejazzpage.com, Yooseung Cho
Singer Cathy Segal-Garcia and pianist Yoonseung Cho weave a wonderful tapestry of sound on Bohemian. The duet recording has a ‘live art’ feel to it and not the sometimes overly-polished sound that you hear on similar collaboration these days. There’s a rawness to the effort, along with the vibe of two people who clearly are a good pairing. Segal-Garcia delivers a lyric beautifully on a project that is a mix of sweet ballads and some gentle swinging compositions. Cho’s playing manages to resonate quite clearly as an equal voice on the project, not simply an accompanist. The song selection here is a nice balance of originals and wonderfully re-worked tunes by composers such as, Pat Metheny, Bob Moses, Sting and others. Listening to the project is like being an ear witness to the beginning of a beautiful musical friendship.
