Martha Lorin was raised to be a singer and has pursued a career in jazz as a singer/lyricist/songwriter ever since. She followed her grandmother and mother, Sarah and Margaret Dalton, into this profession with such passion that her career took off. Martha's singing debut was at San Francisco's' Hungry I. Her career gained speed and she received a reputation for working with the best jazz musicians in the business! Her debut LP "The Best is Yet to Come" , produced by Henry Lewi (Joni Mitchell producer) featured jazz icons - Pee Wee Ellis and Mark Isham, to name a few. This LP sells on the international market for approximately $50.00 now (it is a rare item with only 1000 copies issued).
With this project, Martha performed throughout the US, Asia and Europe.
In 1980, she met pianist/composer Frank Collette and began collaboration as lyricist that resulted in several Billboard Award nominated songs.
Martha's singing appearances include: Weill Hall at Carnegie Hall, The Iridium Jazz Club, Hotel Kitano, the South Bend Jazz Festival, Trio's Jazz Club, Pearl's, Feinstein's at the Regency, Judy's, 88's, Metropolitan Room, Green Mill, Catch 35, Bailiwick Theater, Milford Theater, The Gardenia. In Europe, Martha worked in clubs from Denmark and Switzerland, in Asia: from Manila to the Philippines.
Martha's recordings include "A Celebration of Ella" produced by Jack Globenfelt, featuring the late great pianist, Paul Smith; "Come Walk With Me" produced by Ralph Lampkin, Jr;, featuring two of the world's greatest players - saxophonist Von Freeman and violinist Johnny Frigo (who wrote the beautiful poem about Martha in the liner notes), percussionist Leon Joyce, bassist Eddie DeHass and bassist Larry Grey. " Blues Over Broadway" Produced by Ralph Lampkin, Jr, is her collaboration with the pianist/arranger, Russ Kassoff. Featuring bassist Larry Gray, percussionist Leon Joyce and guitarist Curtis Robinson. Highlights include the number one radio hit " Alone Together", " Send in the Clowns" and her 9 1/2 minute version of the Rodgers/Hart classic " Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered". Martha even has a rare unreleased project (like many other recording artists) featuring songs of the patriotic genre, produced by Charles Osgood of CBS fame. Those recordings feature pianist/arranger Ted Firth, Bucky and John Pizzarelli and saxophonist Joel Frahm.

"Jon Weber is a virtuoso, pure and simple."
It's a wonderful thing when jazz insiders from all over the world enthusiastically discover an intelligent, creative young talent like Jon Weber. A spectacular solo pianist, his brilliantly crafted spontaneous orchestrations easily place him in the rarefied company of today's elite jazz musicians. By age 19, Jon's jazz quintet had been the opening act for jazz icons Pat Metheney, Buddy Rich, Freddie Hubbard, Angela Bofill and Stanley Turrentine. Whenever a stellar player joined me onstage (Stevie Wonder; Wynton Marsalis; Bobby McFerrin), I longed to perform with my own original ensemble again."
In 2002, Jon rediscovered manuscripts I'd written in high school and started calling every great musician I knew.
'SIMPLE COMPLEX' took on a life of its own very quickly."
Weber's quintet, the surprise hit of Melbourne's January 2003 International Jazz Fest, inspired this review by "The Age" newspaper;
"The tunes are mind-bendingly complex with overlapping time signatures, accent shifts, and rhythmic feels that swerve from Cuban montunos to Indian tabla patterns to straight-ahead jazz at the blink of an eye. Weber spiked his challenging charts with infectious latin grooves while fellow musicians rode the odd-metered passages with unflappable poise." - THE AGE - Melbourne, AU.
"SIMPLE COMPLEX," released in January 2004 (2ndCenturyJazz Records), features Jon on piano, drummer Mark Walker, tenor sax master Eric Alexander, trumpeters Diego Urcola and Roy Hargrove, bassists Avishai Cohen, Niels-Henning ├śrsted Pedersen, and Peter Washington, plus vibraphonist Gary Burton. "How lucky can a guy get'!" adds Jon. "World-class players - each giving a 100th percentile performance."
UK's Jazz Journal International writes; "Jon Weber is a virtuoso pianist with outstanding technique plus boundless imagination and enthusiasm who is bound to make a big impression on the international jazz scene."
Jon has been profiled on CNN, CNBC, Black Entertainment TV, Bravo/Arts, National Public Radio, and Voice of America discussing Jon's unique musical depth and vast knowledge of his craft. The NPR's 1997 Holiday CD includes 2 excellent tracks by Jon.
After a compelling appearance on Marian McPartland's Piano Jazz, Warner Bros. commissioned Jon (Mr. Perfect Pitch) to transcribe "Portraits" a book containing 23 of Marian's improvised piano solo compositions. Jon's live recordings under the name, Flying Keys, are available from prestigious Swiss label Jazz Connoisseur.

Martha Lorin and Jon Weber - Celebrating Harold Arlen

Celebrated cabaret-jazz chanteuse Martha Lorin and the equally prodigious pianist Jon Weber at Don't Tell Mama; the two have crafted an absolutely perfect evening of Arlen, and the credit belongs to each of them equally.
