ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Cabaret Star Maude Maggart Releases New Album, March 13

Pick of the week: ET WEEKLY - with an "A" rating.

Pick of the week: USA TODAY 3/13/2007

Skylark/The River Is So Blue, Maude Maggart: Rising cabaret star Maggart may not be as well known to the general public as her sister, the pop provocateuse Fiona Apple. But with her sultry-sweet tone and quivering vibrato, Maggart conveys a freshness and unmannered sensuality that make her a singular presence among young crooners. On this medley of Hoagy Carmichael/Johnny Mercer and Kurt Weill/Ann Ronell classics, her tenderness and longing are almost painfully raw, and hauntingly lovely.

MAUDE MAGGART, the chanteuse who started her performing career in the clubs of New York and Los Angeles , has exploded into one of today’s most compelling international concert artists. She has been hailed as “bewitching” by The New York Times, “utterly enchanting” by the New York Post, “stunning” by the Los Angeles Times and “transfixing” by New York Magazine.

Her latest CD Maude Maggart Live – which includes classic love songs such as “You Go To My Head,” “Skylark,” “I Can’t Get Started,” “All The Things You Are” and “The Song Is You,” in addition to rarely-heard vintage compositions by Kurt Weill (“The River Is So Blue”), Jerome Kern (“Let’s Begin”) and Harry Warren (“Coffee In The Morning, Kisses In The Night”) – was released on March 13, 2007. USA Today, which labeled the disc “Pick of the Week,” said “with her sultry-sweet tone and quivering vibrato, Maggart conveys a singular freshness and unmannered sensuality.”

This new CD continues a year of astonishing success for Maude, including a spot on Entertainment Weekly’s “Must List,” a feature segment on NPR’s “Morning Edition,” and a Time Out New York cover story. Maude recently filmed her screen debut in a new movie about composer Kurt Weill by director/actor/screenwriter Robert Downey, Sr. She recorded a duet with Broadway and TV star John Lithgow for his new CD, The Sunny Side of the Street, which was nominated for a Grammy Award. In addition to annual sell-out runs at the Oak Room of the fabled Algonquin Hotel in New York and the Gardenia in Hollywood , Maude made her London debut in February as part of Jeff Harnar’s “American Songbook in London ” series at the Jermyn Street Theatre.

Her concerts have become celebrity magnets, attracting such boldface names as Philip Seymour Hoffman, Lynn Redgrave and Neil Simon. Her latest show, “Good Girl/Bad Girl” – which explores the emotional complexities of songs written for both naughty and nice, and others open to interpretation – opened to rave reviews in New York and Los Angeles . She reprised the program in Chicago at the Steppenwolf Theater Company and it will be broadcast on Chicago Public Radio this fall.

Her previous CD, Maude Maggart Sings Irving Berlin, features well-known standards from Berlin’s catalog such as “The Song Is Ended,” “Always” and “What’ll I Do,” as well as lesser known songs such as “When I Leave The World Behind,” “Slumming on Park Avenue” and “Yiddisha Nightingale.” Her 2004 CD, With Sweet Despair, includes Depression-era gems such as “Happy Days Are Here Again,” “ Forty Second Street ” and “Night and Day,” along with rarely recorded numbers by Harry Warren (“Remember My Forgotten Man”), Marshall Barer (“Beyond Compare”) and Cole Porter (“How Could We Be Wrong?”). Her music has been championed by New York broadcasting legend Jonathan Schwartz, the eminent British broadcaster Russell Davies on the BBC and Garrison Keillor on NPR’s “A Prairie Home Companion.”

Maude is the scion of an acclaimed show business family: her grandmother starred in the George White Scandals of 1926, her grandfather was the star vocalist for the famed Harry James Big Band, her parents met while performing with Lauren Bacall in the Broadway musical Applause, and her sister is pop singer-songwriter Fiona Apple.

Born and raised near 125th Street in New York City , Maude created a stir in Hollywood with her debut show at the Gardenia, when The Los Angeles Times said “Maude Maggart’s talent and imagination offer hope for the future of cabaret.” Fostered by Andrea Marcovicci and Michael Feinstein, Maude has performed at nightclubs around the country, including Feinstein’s at the Regency in Manhattan, the Plush Room in San Francisco, the Colony Hotel in Palm Beach, the Savor Room in St. Louis and Schroeder’s in San Diego.

For the 92nd Street Y’s “Lyrics and Lyricists” series, Maude starred in Easy to Love: The Love Songs of Cole Porter and Kurt Weill In America, the latter which will be released on CD this spring. She will return to the series in June 2007 for Noël Coward and His Ladies, curated by Steve Ross. In 2005, she was featured in the LAByrinth Theatre Company’s Obsession benefit, curated and directed by John Patrick Shanley. Maude is the recipient of the 2005 Time Out New York Award for Special Achievement, the 2005 MAC Award for Best Female Debut and the 2005 Back Stage Award for Special Achievement.

Over the past year, she has headlined shows at New York ’s Downtown River to River Festival, Guild Hall in East Hampton , the Hudson Opera House, the Oregon Festival of American Music, the Bridgeport Playhouse and Michael Feinstein’s “Standard Time” concert series at Carnegie Hall. She appeared as the special guest star with the MYO Dance Company in Garden of Reason – a theatrical event with song, dance and magic – at the Ivar Theatre in Hollywood .

good, especially "i can't get tarted"

Ron

Fantastic!
This recording really captures the performance-it's like being there right in the Algonquin Room-you can even hear a few dishes rattling in the background. Besides a great choice of songs, Maude's commentary about her family history and the pieces really brings them to life. While there are other cabaret and standard singers, Maggart really takes you there through time and space in her connection with the songs-living in them and not just performing them.

Maude Maggart Live
The selection of songs and the pure voice of Maude
Maggart make this album a classic.

Andrew Montgomery

incomparable, perfect interpretations with great feeling
Maude treats us to what many have yet to experience- her music live. Her voice is so full of expression, a sort of bitter-sweet beauty. Deep Purple is perhaps the best suited song to her vocal style. I've never heard My Funny Valentine rendered so meaningfully. Her vocal at the end of the song leaves a lump in your throat!

Scott

Wonderful old songs enchantingly renewed!
Ever since I first heard this recording I couldn't get it out of my head. I bought it immediately and have listened to it again and again. The dynamics of the live setting give the session great emotional power.

Jay Fuchs

In a word - WOW
Fresh, unaffected and delightful. My first CD by this rising star but certainly not my last. Thanks to Jonathan Schwartz and XM Radio for introducing her to us.

SERGIO BLANDI

grande voce
The voice of Maude seems born from a rose in the morning, full of fresh dew, as trembling voices of the great French singers once, seems out of the smoke and glasses small bistro in Paris. Truly wonderful. Sergio

FRED T PUGLIESE

Live
the album is great,,,,,just saw her live last week
she is wonderful

Jay

Live performances by a great singer
I'm another person who gives four or five stars to Maude's "Sweet Despair" and "Silver Lining" recordings. I have to admit I only listened to this live recording once before I gave it as a gift, but it seemed to me that a number of the songs were keyed rather low for Maude's vocal range. She's a soprano! Sing the melodies there and keep us happy!

Toni & Barry

Fantastic
This is an excellent CD from one of the best cabaret singers working today. We have all of her CD's and we are eagerly awaiting the next one.
