Kat Edmonson plays NYC's Le Poisson Rouge / Wall Street Journal

Bookmark and Share

Lately there seems to be an especially noteworthy new crop of young female singer-songwriters. Kat Edmonson's original songs and her delivery thereof somehow seems both retro and cutting edge all at the same time, contemporary but with a firm grounding in the 1960s. On her new album, "The Big Picture," "You Can't Break My Heart" combines James Bond fender bass lines and an Ennio Morricone trumpet, while the next track, "Till We Start to Kiss" pays a visit to Martin Denny's tiki lounge. Although this show is an album release event, here's hoping Ms. Edmonson will include a few standards; her rendition of "Mele Kalikimaka" was the highlight of Vince Giordano 's Town Hall Christmas concert two months ago.  SEE THE Wall Street Journal LISTING
