""Perfect Vibrato...""

"This CD, 'Kathryn Taubert: Where Can I Go Without You?' has a lot of things in it that are perfect. Let me tell you a few of them that make me happy. Kathryn has a perfect vibrato. You've never heard one quite this good. She knows how to express a song. And this is the first time in I can't remember when that I've heard a three musician combo that actually knows the art of accompaniment. My favorite...is the first cut, 'When October Goes' Four and a half minutes of greatness.... If you are a light jazz fan, this is one you should have in your collection."

"Galveston Native Up for International Jazz Award"

Galveston native Kathryn McDonald Taubert put aside jazz singing for a practical day job years ago, but now at age 62, she’s singing again, and nominated for an International Jazz Award.

Four songs from her first CD release, at age 61, have catapulted her into the company of musicians the likes of Michael Buble and Herbie Hancock at the awards to be televised next month from Beverly Hills. It’s all very humbling and hopeful.

“Where Can I Go Without You?” was released last year, with songs penned by Peggy Lee, Barry Manilow and others. Four of the songs with Latin influences garnered her a nomination for the International Jazz Awards, in the category of “Latin and Afro-Cuban: Outstanding Performance in a Vocal (Female).” (SEE ARTICLE FOR MORE)

Where Can I Go Without You? 2007 CD/ten songs by Antonio Carlos Jobim, Johnny Mercer, Barry Manilow, Hoagy Carmichael, Peggy Lee, Peter Nero and others, in English, Portuguese, French and Spanish. 2008 CD "Somewhere In Time" features Kathryn's original lyrics to three well known tunes. All can be previewed and purchased on CD from www.CDBABY.com, downloaded individually at www.Digstation.com or www.Itunes.com, or purchased at www.kathryntaubert.com.



The music Kathryn Taubert sings appeals to anyone who ever identified with lyrics that told a story, evoked a memory, brought a laugh or a tear to your eye, or made you want to dance. Kathryn has performed regularly in a variety of venues, and is most well known for her smooth interpretations of old favorites, as well as complex rhythms and multi-lingual Latin jazz favorites. Working with a cadre of some of the finest jazz/blues musicians in New York, Florida, and her native Texas, Kathryn's performances always generate interest.

"Having fans identify with a song I sing is a wonderful compliment," she says. "For every feeling there is a lyric, and for every experience, a song. I enjoy finding those tunes that speak to fans on a personal level, and am honored when they ask me to sing 'their song.' "

Singing in four languages (English, Spanish, Portuguese & French), Kathryn's style lends itself to casual or formal dinner clubs, intimate piano bars, big band ballrooms, or swinging "Jam Sessions" where patrons and musicians alike gather for an evening of fun and dancing. Or, as one fan put it, "Sitting quietly at home on the deck overlooking the water, glass of wine in hand, and listening to your music is the best way to complete my day."

Kathryn's early influences included June Christie, Rosie Clooney, Julie London, Keely Smith, Peggy Lee, Anita O'Day, and “memorizing just about everything Ella and Sarah ever did,” Kathryn counts Mel Torme and Antonio Carlos Jobim among her favorite arrangers/composers.
