ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Acclaimed Recording Star Karen Mason & Nine Time MAC Award Winning Vocalist Releases Her New CD, RIGHT HERE/RIGHT NOW.

Zevely Records is proud to present the long-awaited new CD from acclaimed vocalist Karen Mason. With her CD recordings, concerts, Broadway stage performances and TV appearances, Karen Mason “has few peers when it comes to ripping the roof off with her amazing voice that knows no bounds” (TheaterScene.net), which her stunning new recording reaffirms. Mason has headlined at Carnegie Hall, the Kennedy Center and Lincoln Center and has shared concert stages with such musical luminaries as Luciano Pavarotti, Rosemary Clooney, Liza Minnelli and Michael Feinstein.

The nine-time MAC Award winner, including Major Female Vocalist of the Year for six consecutive years, releases her sixth CD, RIGHT HERE/RIGHT NOW. The recording is a showcase for Karen’s dynamic vocals and musical versatility, featuring a mix of classic standards, Broadway and motion picture favorites, as well as two never before recorded songs.

Mason maximizes her vocal talents on this shining effort. From her jazz-tinged delivery on "All That Jazz" and "Everything Old Is New Again", Mason also shows her sensitive side, with exquisite, haunting readings on the classic standards "Secret Love", "Make Someone Happy" and "Look For The Silver Lining", giving them a depth and meaning that they never had before.

Two of the recording’s high points are brand new songs co-written by Emmy Award-winning composer Paul Rolnick. The album’s title cut "Right Here, Right Now" and "Like The Heaven Holds The Stars" are given heartfelt and emotional performances as only Karen can. Another standout is Karen’s powerful rendition of "As If We Never Said Goodbye", from Sunset Boulevard. Karen had played the lead role of Norma Desmond to critical acclaim and standing ovations on Broadway and in Los Angeles over 200 times.

Produced by Rolnick, who multi-tasked on this effort as arranger, vocal engineer and mixer, Karen’s astounding vocals are surrounded with a backdrop of instruments ranging from piano, bass, drums, horns, and strings, with outstanding arrangements provided by Rolnick, Barry Kleinbort and Christopher Denny.

Once again, with her new CD, Karen Mason proves that her time is Right Here Right Now, providing us with a standout recording and vocal performances that take “even the most well-known song and make it sound new and exciting” (Edge Publications).

The celebrated stage actress is currently starring as Velma Von Tussle in the Tony Award-winning Broadway smash hit Hairspray. Mason also originated the role of Tanya in Mamma Mia!, for which she was awarded a 2002 Drama Desk nomination as Best Actress and won the Outer Critics Circle Award for her performance in And The World Goes Round.

Karen Mason: Right Here
Karen, as always, is at her best, at home equally with the great American song book, and with originals. All top notch material, all top notch arrangements, and all top notch vocals. Thanks again, Karen!
