ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The band and vocal arrangements of "Just Marilyn" will knock your socks off. These songs are in the new retro-contemporary style featuring music from the 40's and 50's. "Just Marilyn" is wonderful and upbeat. It is dedicated to all lovers of big band and all those who love and admire the inimitable Marilyn Monroe and enjoy remembering her era.

American singer Kate Michaels emerged internationally as an engaging and captivating artist, performing established favourites with cotemporary flair that has been described as classy, humorous, and elegant. Just Marilyn is also a principle component -- along with other projects produced by Kate's production company, New Arts Paradigm, gmbh -- of concerts and touring shows in Europe, the UK, and North America.

"Putting together the music from one of last century's most cherished eras is the most fun I had all year. It was wonderful to research this amazing music and I'm very thankful that this project was presented to me by such fabulous musicians. It's great that Big Band continues to be loved and appreciated in the new retro-contemporary style."

Kate is more Marilyn than Marilyn
Kate Michaels'"Just Marilyn"CD is more than "Just Marilyn." Probably most folks have no idea that Marilyn aspired to develop as a serious singer of standard tunes. She certainly had more talent than the "Happy Birthday, Mr. President" stereotype that lingers with her memory. Kate has captured Marilyn's vocal style and nuances in a manner that would have pleased the late great screen star. With crystal clear diction and a voice dripping with sensuality backed by an excellent group of studio musicians and arrangements mixed with precision, Kate touches the nostalgia and tragedy of this woman who never could shed the burden of her starlet icon stereotype. The final song "After You Get What You Want You Don't Want It," is an appropriate ironic close.

Sexy, sophisticated ... Marilyn never sounded so good
Kate Michaels makes big band music hot! The swinging brass sound and Ms. Michaels's sultry, powerful voice are a classic combination. Sophisticated and sexy, Marilyn never sounded so good. I've got three words for Ms. Michaels "Do It Again"!

If you like "Big Band" sound, you have to get this CD.
Order another cosmopolitan and get on the dance floor. If you like "Big Band" sound, you have to get this CD. Kate Michaels' strong sultry voice delivers these incredible full orchestra arrangements with a twinkle in her voice. You'll blush, but still wink and smile to the lady singing with the band. Brava Ms. Michaels! More! More! More!
