Marlboro, NY: “It was on my bucket list to work with Guillermo” Rebecca Martin confides. “For a decade, I was just waiting for the right project”
In early 2014, the notable Singer/Songwriter Rebecca Martin and acclaimed composer Guillermo Klein started their journey together.
“Rebecca’s voice, her tone and the way it feels – beautify present on every project of hers that I heard.” Guillermo Klein says. “When she reached out on her idea of a collaboration, I couldn’t have been happier.”
“I would send him my songs and he’d send his too. Eventually, I just started writing lyrics to his. I was completely taken by his new work, which came as no surprise. In Jazz, singers tend to stick to the ‘American Songbook’ or write their own material. It occurred to me that it would be important to make the songs of modern composers accessible to singers. Guillermo’s music is ripe for that.”
Both musicians, Martin originally from Maine and Klein from Argentina now live in the Hudson Valley. The two have called their collaboration UPSTATE. It also includes world renowned bassist LARRY GRENADIER. The three start their residency at “Live at the Falcon” in Marlboro, NY for weekly performances beginning on Monday, November 17th through the middle of December.
“Now with at least a dozen compositions, we are really looking forward to playing and developing the music live in preparation for a recording in 2015.” Martin says. “Our drummer Jeff Ballard currently lives in Europe, but will meet up with us in in 2015 for the recording.”
Throughout their residency at the Falcon in Marlboro, UPSTATE will host a weekly guest to perform their music that includes Lee Falco (drums/percussion), Sara Serpa (Vocals), Diego Urbano (Vibraphone), Chris Cheek (Tenor Saxophone) and Mark Turner (Tenor Saxophone).
