Meet Monica Chapman-Jazz Vocalist ' Romania's contribution to the Canadian jazz world is Monica Chapman.Her aptly-named album 'But Beautiful' finds the singer in her finest form yet. Not to be missed....' Mark Rheaume, CBC Radio,2013. Monica has been working with iconic Juno award-winning producer/arranger/pianist Bill King over the past year on her new album titled 'P.S. I Love You!' and is already garnering very positive feedback and reviews even before it's release! Her producer shared two previews on his youtube channel for this album,the first, a show stopping tune titled 'I Love A Piano' by Irving Berlin arranged brilliantly in a New Orleans' Style and the second, ' Moanin' Low',a great tune sung by Lena Horne on her debut album at age 19. This tune was chosen for Monica by her producer/pianist/arranger Bill King and both previews are already receiving many views and positive reviews on youtube. Monica was invited to sing on Broadway at the famous 'Birdland' recently for Jim Carouso's 'Cast Party' and brought the house down with her rendition of 'I Love A Piano'. She also sang at 'The Salon' on Broadway in New York and was invited back to sing at both in September 2015.You can watch 'The Salon' performance on youtube,also posted on her website. Bill King writes: ' Monica goes to Broadway! It's not easy getting a late start in life and living the dream. Well, Monica is doing it on her own terms. Monica arrived at my door four years ago with the dream of one day singing on Broadway and making a recording. Tall order. Many obstacles to overcome. None of this dissuaded her. Monica has been here nearly every week the past four years determined to sing and improve way beyond the day she set foot in our house. Few of the younger singers I have worked with and encouraged have this determination or tenacity. So, Monica goes to Broadway with partner Larry. She sings at the Salon and Birdland. Courageous move. What she does is put herself out there and takes a chance and wins round one. Monica---we are all very proud of you and your new recording is lovely. You are such a good person with big heart and bigger ambition. You prove to everyone who said it isn't possible that it's always possible if you work hard, listen and follow through. So to you a toast to your evening. ' -Bill King Bill assembled an A-list of players on this ablum featuring world renowned trumpeter William Sperandei who is highly featured on this record. Monica is honoured to have Juno-award winning bassist Dave Young on side who played in Oscar Petersons' great trios. Her debut jazz CD ' But Beautiful',released in 2013 was very successful and featured on CBC's TONIC, Fresh-Air, Here and Now, Jazz.FM's 'Cafe Latino', the BBC Radio,UK and worldwide. She received great revues in The Wholenote Magazine, Cashbox Canada and New Canadian Music. Monica continues to pack the house whenever she performs at great venues around the GTA. She is asked time and time again for TV and radio appearances,for interviews and to share her music with the listeners. Monica appeared on The Being Frank Show and the Nikki Clarke Show at the Hard Rock Cafe and was asked for a second appearance on her show during the Toronto Jazz Festival in June 2014. She was invited back on The Being Frank show in the New Year coming up,2015, date to be arranged to talk about her new CD and sing a song from her new album. Quotes and Testimonials ' With the release of her latest recording, refreshing, Romanian born vocalist Monica Chapman displays a superb vocal instrument with impeccable intonation, as well as a tasty menu of elegant jazz 'standards' framed by the skilled arrangements and inspired, rhythmic and zesty piano work of producer Bill King...' Lesley Mitchell-Clarke,Wholenote Magazine, 'New Discoveries'. 'Monica Chapman is the best,most exciting singer I've heard since Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald and other greats! She is amazing.....and very fortunate to have a wonderful band and to be mentored by the famous (in jazz circles) Bill King. She will soon be an international sensation!Congrats on your successes Monica. 3' Betty Dravis (award-winning journalist and interviewer to the stars) ' I can see where dedication to Lena Horne is fitting in her rendition of 'Moanin' Low'. Hearing this along with 'I Love a Piano' I get the idea your voice and expression would have fit in front of Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers had they opted to work with vocal material. Good stuff!' Brian Hay,reporter About Monica Chapman: Monica was born in Romania and came to Canada with her family at the age of nine, at which time she began to study piano. She attained her degree in Piano Performance ( A.R.C.T.) and voice at the Royal Conservatory of Music of Toronto, as well as a Bachelor of Arts degree in English Literature from York University. Her early interest in musical theatre led to a role with the Toronto Operetta Theatre Company in their production of 'The Widow' in 2004, and performed at the St. Lawrence Centre in Toronto under the direction of Bill Silva. She also appeared in several musical variety productions in Toronto and across Canada. ....From Classical Music to Musical Theatre.... Monica has evolved into a jazz performer over the past ten years and she appears in great venues in Toronto and across Canada, with the finest renowned musicians backing her. Monica is inspired by such legends as Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, Lena Horne, Billie Holiday,Nina Simone,Doris Day,Barbra Streisand,Judy Garland, Liza Minelli,Cleo Laine and Carmen MacRae but makes the music she sings very much her own. Her voice is distinct and unforgettable. Liner Notes for Monica Chapman-P.S. I Love You! Choosing the songs for P.S. I Love You! Was a process of discovery and great passion. Each was selected to suit my expanding interest in a variety of musical styles; from New Orleans to bluesy ballads, to the Latin rhythms that inspired singers like Lena Horne, Nina Simone, Eydie Gorme and Billie Holiday. Great tunes like 'Mean to Me' and 'Shaking The Blues Away' sung by Doris Day in the 1952 movie 'Love Me or Leave Me' arranged brilliantly in a Dixie/New Orleans' style by producer/pianist Bill King. Also, the lively and swinging tune, 'I Love A Piano', sung by Judy Garland in 'Easter Parade' and 'P.S. I Love You', sung by Mel Torme which I recorded as a 'love letter' to my husband and 'To Russia With Love' from the 1963 James Bond film, starring my favourite secret agent, Sean Connery. I live everyday through the songs I discover on CD's and vinal records. I learned long ago that music is a journey and gentle companion that comforts and persuades. It's about reshaping a song and getting my adaptation to you as I hear it. I hope I speak artistically through the ten songs on this recording and bring something new to the conversation. Every day for me is a celebration of life and song! Thank You! To my loving and supportive husband Larry and my beautiful family. Bill King, Juno award winning producer/pianist/arranger for his stunning arrangements and piano artistry and for bringing out my voice. To William Sperandei, world renowned trumpeter who is highly featured on this album and to the A-list players Bill put together for this amazing project, my sincere gratitude. I am especially honoured to have Dave Young of Oscar Peterson's great trios and Juno Award winning bandleader on side. Special thanks to the brilliant Michael Haas who worked his magic behind the console recording and engineering the sound for this album at Inception Sound Studios. And lastly, to everyone who supports me: Bill and Kris King, CBC's Mark Rheaume, TONIC and Tim Tamashiro, and to my friends and fans around the world, you know who you are! I hope you enjoy listening to this album and bring you as much joy as it brought me recording it for you! Much Love, Monica.
