Song-Stylist Jonathan Karrant’s new album entitled “Eclectic” is just that, a collection of popular songs written from the 1940’s through the 2010’s. It includes favorites from the Great American Songbook born out of Broadway musicals and Hollywood films, as well as songs not usually found in the jazz genre, cleverly creating new standards out of songs by Smokey Robison, James Taylor and Macy Gray. Some of the more classic sections on the album are Pure Imagination, The Song is You, and Mr. Bojangles. A highlight track is a song called Love Dance written by Ivan Lins. Jonathan’s recording of the song is a beautifully sensual duet with Grammy nominated singer Jane Monheit. The album also features such artists as; renowned saxophonist Houston Person, Jazz at Lincoln Center trumpeter Kenny Rampton and acclaimed pianist Joe Alterman.
On Friday, September 15th, 2023 the songs from Eclectic will be brought to life on the stage at The Purple Room. Join Jonathan and the band in celebrating this brilliant new album!
