Siskiyou Music Project welcomes back New West Guitar Group with special guest vocalist Halie Loren for a performance at the Artistic Piano Gallery in Medford.
With seven studio albums to their credit, New West Guitar Group latest release “ Send One Your Love” features an incredible cast of guest jazz vocalists. Teaming up with Gretchen Parlato, Tierney Sutton, Sara Gazarek, Becca Stevens and Peter Eldridge, the album tells a story about the highs and lows of love. Each vocalist is featured on a traditional and contemporary standard with lyrics that portray themes of vulnerability, hope, pain and happiness.
Seattle Times hails NWGG as “sharp and refined” while All Music Guide says the trio’s expert arrangements “sometimes verge on the orchestral.” The band lives up to their reputation on Send One Your Love showcasing their thoughtful arrangements specifically done for the sound and style of each vocalist. The project brings together timeless compositions from Cole Porter, Joni Mitchell, Kurt Weill, Randy Newman and others through the sophisticated New West style of arranging. The result is a beautifully crafted and cohesive album that expands the notion of what is a “standard” to tell a story about of love.
For their concert at the Artistic Piano Gallery, the NWGG is joined by vocalist Haile Loren. A fantastic jazz vocalist based in Oregon, Halie’s voice has been hailed as having “a power and grace that are nearly unheard of”. Her recent album titled “Butterfly Blue” has received praise for its “perfect balance of classic and original jazz songs”.
For their 9th performance in the Rouge Valley in 10 years, New West Guitar Group is excited to have their debut performance with Halie Loren at the Artistic Piano Gallery.
