What The Critics Have Said About Martha Lorin:

Celebrated cabaret-jazz chanteuse Martha Lorin and the equally prodigious pianist Jon Weber have crafted an absolutely perfect evening of Arlen...
Andrew Martin, Nitelifeexchange

"With a soft piano intro, Lorin's second number was Ellington's "Do Nothing Till You Hear From Me"... It was a strikingly original ending which indicates what a
master singer she is!"
Joe Regan, Jr. Times Square Chronicles.

"Nowhere is this shown to better effect than on the album's coda, Billy Strayhorn 's difficult-to-sing "Lush Life." Arranged beautifully with Blount's dark, woody middle register clarinet creating the mood befitting Lorin's dark-hued voice."
Dave Nathan, All Music Guide

About the Duke Ellington School of the Arts :

The Duke Ellington School of the Arts , established in 1974, is one of the nation's premiere public high schools offering professional arts training. The school's name honors native son, Edward Kennedy "Duke" Ellington, who not only named his original band "The Washingtonians," but made his home part of his persona.

The mission of the school is to nurture and inspire passion for arts and learning in talented students who might not otherwise have an opportunity to develop their artistic skills. Students are not only prepared for post-secondary education and/or careers in the arts, but are provided a strong focus on community service.

From the beginning, public and private partnerships have supported the school -the Duke Ellington School of the Arts Project (DESAP) - which includes the D.C. Public Schools, the Ellington Fund, the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, and George Washington University.
Currently, the school is raising funds for a modernization of its facilities.
