Nora McCarthy

Born:

Nora McCarthy has been a steady fixture on the New York music scene since 1996 when she recorded her first CD red&blue with pianist John diMartino, bass-Essiet Okon Essiet, drums-Alvester Garnett, t-sax-Mike Lee and percussionist, Sato Takeishi. She and her various groups have appeared in the top jazz rooms, performance spaces, concert halls, clubs, cafes and galleries in the city and elsewhere in the world. McCarthy possesses the earthiness of an early blues singer, the articulation, phrasing and timbre of a jazz trumpet. An adept and exhilarating improviser, she performs in every situation from duo to a twenty piece large ensemble from straight ahead jazz to the free and avant-garde idioms
