Rebecca Martin's new CD "The Growing Season"

REBECCA MARTIN BRINGS TOGETHER SONGCRAFT, MOTHERHOOD, AND ACTIVISM FOR "STELLAR" RELEASE

Rebecca Martin - singer-songwriter, mother and activist - has brought all of her strengths together for 'The Growing Season' (Sunnyside). Jazz and pop critics alike are praising this album, not just for its "exhibition of craftsmanship" (Downbeat), but also for its "captivating" (Wall Street Journal) blend of textures and styles that is sure to pique the interest of music fans of all kinds. As a critic's pick, the New York Times says, "She can make the same phrase seem philosophical and conversational, and about as natural as sighing."

'The Growing Season's 13 songs weave intricate, poetic stories of "interior journeys, of love lost and regained... of larger forces" (Jazz Times). Each composition is intimate, yet relatable - meditations on growth, change and the courage both require.

Jazz fans will appreciate the collaborations with Rebecca's husband and bassist Larry Grenadier (Brad MehldauTrio); guitarist, pianist and producer Kurt Rosenwinkel; and drummer Brian Blade (Joni Mitchell/Wayne Shorter).

Downbeat Magazine praises 'The Growing Season's "great melodic sophistication" and "charming songs" flavored with "lilting Brazilian influence... rock-jazz muscles," that provide the listener with "a number of rewards."

These influences and collaborations are testament to the narrative and musical power of 'The Growing Season.' Don't miss out on what Jazz Times calls Rebecca Martin's "stellar new outing."

If you like acoustic/jazz music, this album is for you. Rebecca Martin has a lovely voice and her lyrics are very poetic. This is definitely music to listen to when you are in a mellow mood. It's not upbeat, but it's not a downer, either.

The background instruments quietly complement Martin's voice without overpowering the vocals.
