ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Kate Loitz won the 2006 Bistro Award from Back Stage for "outstanding excellence in cabaret performance." Critic David Finkle asks, "Where has she been all of our lives?"

Kate made her lifetime debut in Akron, Ohio, in December, 1949. Like most of us, she has known the joys and sorrows of life across its most telling dimensions: youth and maturity, war and love, home and foreign lands. I'M GLAD I'M NOT YOUNG ANYMORE is an anthology of those experiences, a tuneful sharing of romantic notions and fateful choices that resonate truthfully with those who have gained the kind of wisdom that comes from having done many things--not always well, but knowing that ambitious attempts can offer the greatest rewards.

Kate's approach to music mirrors her approach to life. Formed in the coffee houses of her college years, refined on the musical stage, and ultimately honed in the cabarets of New York and Chicago, her vocals range from beautifully sentimental to raucously suggestive. The selections here include memorable standards and some rarely heard should-be standards, reflecting the vagaries of living and the inexplicably subtle differences that distinguish between life's successes and failures. From Pompeii to Paris, from innocence to irreverence, from buoyancy to bereavement, Kate's is the voice of a fiery human spirit, surmounting all challenges and finding the most marvelous words and tunes with which to capture each moment.

The CD features Robert Marks on piano, John Loehrke on bass and Jeremy Harris on drums. The exceptional arrangements, including the remarkable medleys, are by Robert Marks. Produced by Larry Harlow.

Michael C. Wolf

I loved the variety of songs, AND I can hear ALL the lyrics.
These aren't "patter" songs, but you can really hear the wonderful lyrics (especially the title song), and Ms. Loitz is able to switch moods and pacing very well. "Paris in New
York" is a real grabber. She has what I like to call a "limpid" voice, like Judy Collins. Looking forward to her next CD.

Joan Fillot

For lovers of the Great American Songbook - and anybody who likes good music!
I loved the theme of this album. Enough about the young things dipping their toes into love for the first time. This is the voice of experience - joyful experience - not jaded or worldweary. Of course, I liked the French-tinted Last Time I Saw Paris and La Vie en Rose, but the fun of meeting a man in Chicago was a treat too. Keep 'em comin', Kate.

Max Morath, legendary pianist and author

Loitz sings with sensitivity and seasoning
She said it first, so I can agree -- "I'm Glad (She's) Not Young Anymore." The title provided her with a unique concept for this CD -- a very tasty and well-produced exploration of Popular Standards, plus a few not-so-Standard discoveries that will surprise you. Loitz sings with sensitivity and seasoning, backed by pianist Robert Marks and a swinging trio.

Helene Smart

This is a really fine CD by a fine singer--own it!
This CD is wonderful for a great many reasons--Kate has a really lovely voice, clear and sunshiny with perfect diction--and she chooses her songs carefully--there are no throw aways here, every message matters. I particularly like her presentation of the two selections by Michael Peter Smith, a writer new to me. She makes the standards feel fresh, too. There is a lot of intelligence and craft here, and I would gladly own more of her work. Reflecting the care and professionalism of the entire effort is the choice of musicians who work very well with Kate and with each other. I'm going to go play it again, right now.

Wonderful Collection
A wonderful collection of songs that are perfectly performed. I enjoy sitting and listening to her sing while relaxing!

Ray Kolle

A mature and lovely singer
A mature singer in all senses of the words, Kate Loitz has a beautiful voice and a great sense of style. Her voice reminds me a little of Eileeen Farrell's (and I consider that to be high praise indeed). The theme of the CD is delightful, and Kate knows how to imbue a lyric with gentle nuances and subtle meanings. Most of the songs were known to me, but seemed fresh the way Kate presented them. A song that I didn't know "Paris In New York" was a happy discovery. Two other songs I hadn't heard before, written by Peter Michael Smith, sounded as though they deserve to become standards. A couple of clever and charming medleys also make great listening. In short, this is a terrific CD.

they don't make 'em like this anymore
I bought the CD for my grandparents, and we all enjoyed Kate Loitz's wise and witty takes on living in the moment. I hear a lot of old pop standards in my workplace, but these songs are less common and even the old folks didn't recognize them all. They compared her voice to Julie Andrews. Mature but not cynical, classic feel but not the same old rehashed Rat Pack repertoire. If you like the samples she won't let you down!
