USA; Dori Rubbicco-Stage Door Live! (Whaling City Sound 2018)

Stage Door Live!
Emotional, magical, and unmistakably original, Dori Rubbicco returns with Stage Door Live! with the John Harrison Quintet. Recorded at New Bedford s intimate Zeiterion Theater, the live session documents Dori s captivating way with an audience. As a singer-songwriter inspired by the likes of Joni Mitchell, as well as vocal stylists like Ella Fitzgerald and Sarah Vaughan, she understands the power of both style and substance. Her unique interpretations and elegantly imagined performances reveal an artist that composes and interprets, leads and accompanies, shows and tells. Dori has performed across the country in Miami, Los Angeles and Boston as a solo singer songwriter and with groups, including the Miami Jazz Ensemble, the Gerald Wiggins Trio, and the Blues Train Band. Her work here with the inimitable John Harrison and his quintet is the perfect marriage, with Harrison s extraordinary piano laying lush melodies down for Dori to revel in, on covers like Imagine and I Can See Clearly, and Jobim s Two Kites, as well as an entertaining original, Right Here Waiting.
