Rebecca Martin & Larry Grenadier

A duo on stage and a couple in life. She is singer and songwriter Rebecca Martin; he is Larry Grenadier, one of the most acclaimed double bassists on the modern jazz scene. Rebecca Martin is a cult singer with a sophisticated and expressive voice. She digs deep into the lyrics, but, as Thomas Conrad remarked in the magazine Stereophile, she is a rarity among jazz singers: a true composer. She has been compared to Joni Mitchell and Norah Jones, but Martin’s remarkable personality makes her an artist who is only inspired by her world and her way of living it. Larry Grenadier is globally renowned for being a member, since the beginning, of the Brad Mehldau Trio. According to Bass Player magazine, he is a bassist with a “fluid sense of melody”. Besides the Trio, his career includes many other important steps: Paul Motian, Pat Metheny, John Scofield, Mark Turner in the Fly trio, Charles Lloyd, Joshua Redman. In the early years, even with Joe Henderson and Stan Getz. He has also recorded a live solo bass album (ECM), which isn’t for everyone.
