The Arrangement – LA Jazz Scene – Chris J. Walker – Live Performance review at Catalina Bar & Grill

Sylvia Brooks showcased songs from her third record, The Arrangement, at Catalina Bar and Grill, with a solid group of players. Some featured tunes were: “Night and Day”, a cool and deadly ballad, and “Guess Who I Saw Today”. Jacob took the helm for “Midnight Sun” with Brooks singing passionately, with saxophone embellishing. Joining the headliner, was Cathy Segal Garcia for Jacob’s stylish arrangement of the Beatles’ “Eleanor Rigby”, with an injected saxophone solo. With only piano, she seductively sang “Maybe I’m A Fool”- an original, and united with full band was “The Tender Trap” bolstered by piano solo, along with longing “Never Let Me Go”. Concluding the show was sultrily sung “Angel Eyes” with detailed band playing, to draw a standing ovation.
