Left Coast Life
On this provocative collection, Kitty Margolis
celebrates the idealism and irony, humor and poignancy of "Left
Coast Life." A fourth generation Californian, the visionary
vocalist turns her musical sights towards her home turf. Here you
will meet some of the dreamers and schemers that inhabit the edge
of paradise and explore what really gives meaning to life. Bringing
a distinctly 21st century sensibility to her eclectic repertoire
of modern jazz and pop standards and originals, Margolis guides
you into her world with breathtaking emotional intelligence and
Includes songs by Tom Waits, Pink Floyd,
Bob Dorough, Dave Frishberg, Randy Newman and two sparkling originals.
"Margolis' approach is 21st century,
connecting all the musical idioms of her ear into one mother tongue.
She sings from the inside out, performing a kind of synthesis where
music becomes tangible and each phrase takes on a visceral presence.
With Kitty you can almost taste the music. She keeps you listening
with your whole body."
