Boston-bred Cathy Segal-Garcia loved jazz since the age of 5 when she would hang around with her dad (sax player Mike Segal) while she listened to and copied Ella Fitzgerald. Her mother and sisters were also musical, and the family got her started on flute at the age of 10.
Cathy attended the Berklee School of Music from 1972 through 1975, where studied flute and Arranging and Composition . After college, she moved to San Francisco for a brief period, and then to Los Angeles in late 1975, where she still resides. One of the things that has impressed her many colleagues, fans and critics is that she has consistently performed and composed over the years. Performing and recording with literally hundreds of musicians, some of the more well known include: Pianist Russell Ferrante (The Yellowjackets) Drummer Tom Brechtlein (Robben Ford, Chick Corea) Bassist Marc Johnson (pianist Bill Evans, John Ambercrombie, John Scoffield) Bassist Gary Willis (Scott Henderson) Ledgendary guitarist Ted Greene Guitarist Jeff Richman Guitarist Mike Miller (Chick Corea) Saxophonist Bob Sheppard (Steeley Dan) Drummer Peter Erskine (Weather Report, Stan Kenton, Steeley Dan, and many modern jazz recording artists) Pianist Kei Akagi (Miles Davis) Drummer Joey Barron (Bill Frisell, John Scoffield) Studio pianist Mike Lang Singer/pianist Diana Krall Drummer John Robinson (Quincy Jones) Pianist David Benoit Pianist Billy Childs Drummer Joey Heredia (Scott Henderson, Tania Maria) Flautist Sam Most Pianist Carl Schroeder, head of the piano department at Musicians Institute in Hollywood (Sarah Vaughn) Trumpeter Bill Berry Saxophonist Don Menza Pianist extraordinare Dave Mackay Guitarist John Pisano ...and the list goes on.
