New York Voices

New York Voices “It’s certainly not something that occurred to us when we were thinking about starting a band in 1988,” says Darmon Meader, musical director and tenor singer of New York Voices, about the seminal vocal ensemble’s 30th anniversary. “But the band has a momentum of its own—it has a life now.” Indeed, that momentum and life force has a firm grip on Meader and his bandmates, baritone Peter Eldridge and dual sopranos Lauren Kinhan and Kim Nazarian. Each has a separate and busy career of his or her own, working as a soloist and educator in the jazz vocal world, but each makes New York Voices their top priority

New York Voices: Reminiscing In Tempo

Read "Reminiscing In Tempo" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

What the quartet New York Voices achieves with their performance of Dave Brubeck's “Blue Rondo Á La Turk" disguised as “Round, Round, Round" by lyricist Lauren Kinhan is nothing short of a schizophrenic jazz “Carmina Burana." Lithe, muscular, and smart, the performance is dense and thought-provoking, deftly navigating between its disparate 9/8 and 4/4 sections.
