CATHY SEGAL-GARCIA is one of the most prolific jazz vocal recording artists on the West Coast. A performer, songwriter, impresario, teacher, and jazz writer, she is a linchpin on the Los Angeles jazz scene. Segal-Garcia has produced 12 CDs under her own name since 1992. She is now releasing her 13th project, STRAIGHT AHEAD TO THE U.K.

Segal-Garcia first recorded the project in 2011 in England, but the original producer died and the project sat on the shelf ever since, until Segal-Garcia’s executive producer urged her to revive the project. After listening to the album again after so many years, Segal-Garcia wanted to do something different with the music, and brought the CD to Los Angeles bassist and producer JOHN LEFTWICH. Segal-Garcia wanted to bring her vocals up-to-date with new ideas, so she decided to re-sing almost the entire album. With Segal-Garcia’s new approach to the vocals, Leftwich thought it would be a good idea to also bring on board additional musicians to reflect the album’s new attitude, so he brought in some top L.A. players.


The songs on STRAIGHT AHEAD TO THE U.K. comprise an assemblage of standards, modern jazz compositions, and a couple of originals by Segal-Garcia. Cathy Segal-Garcia’s recordings always have elements of fun and soulfulness with musical surprises that never fail to delight. STRAIGHT AHEAD TO THE U.K., in its re-sung, re-orchestrated, and re-engineered form, is a testament to her ever-evolving creativity.
