Marky Quayle releases her latest CD, So Lucky . . . To Be Loved By You
(Published: August 07, 2011)

New York, NY, August 7, 2011-Marky Quayle releases her latest CD, So Lucky . . . To Be Loved By You. This San Francisco native is a compelling singer with a refreshingly velvet vocal sound who has absorbed what all great Jazz vocalists know in their souls: the importance of ‘owning' a song and delivering its poignant story. Her tasteful and agile interpretive skills and natural sense of what it means to get inside of a lyric captivate her audience at every live performance and these qualities are amply demonstrated on her latest CD release.

"A veteran jazz singer that knows how to deliver the goods old school without living in the past, Quayle would knock the judges on their collective asses if they made an ‘American Idol' for adults. Somebody please tell those tv kids that screaming lyrics doesn't convey emotion or sex appeal. The sultry stuff here [on Quayle's Lucky] does. Simply a killer jazz vocal date that makes oldies new and really opens your
ears . . ."-Chris Spector, Editor & Publisher, Midwest Record

So Lucky . . . To Be Loved By You reveals new perspectives on familiar material and shines an elegant light on lesser known songs of the classic Jazz repertoire, much like her previous successful CD release, One December Day. The new CD features sixteen songs that showcase Quayle's rich and sultry phrasing which she delivers with eloquent candor. Her lightness of touch and vocal agility on the familiar up-tempo "How About You" and "Just In Time" nicely complement the heart-felt and dreamy ballads "Cry Me a River," "Estate" (Italian for summer), and "Why Did I Choose You?".

" . . . she has that rare quality of being able to sing to, as opposed to sing at, you. Quayle's warm, husky voice . . . holds notes and phrases . . . to exquisite effect. Quayle is obviously comfortable in her own skin and her ease is palpable. You feel relaxed listening to her, as if she were an old friend."
-George Harris, of Jazz Weekly, 93.5 FM KFOX, for All About Jazz

Marky's father was a great music lover and counted among his close friends George Shearing and Les Brown, who were his regular houseguests, with Shearing often playing on the home piano. With her Dad playing vocal recordings around the house whenever he was home, Marky recounts that she learned three-quarters of her repertoire by the time she was nine. When a neighbor gave her an LP titled The Divine One by Miss Sarah Vaughan, it turned her musical life around.

"Her good taste in picking out superb songs matches her sensitivity in interpreting the timeless lyrics."
-Scott Yanow, Jazz Historian and Journalist, for LA Jazz Scene

So Lucky . . . To Be Loved By You is a must for an intimate evening or a sophisticated social gathering, and seeing this talented and subtle performer live demonstrates just how transcendent a live performance can be. In the meantime, visit Marky Quayle on her website and be sure to treat yourself to the marvelous sounds of this new remarkable and impressive outing.
