Martinis Above Fourth Table Presents SACHA SINGS SINATRA, 6/12
On Thursday, June 12 at 8:00 PM, Martinis Above Fourth Table + Stage in San Diego and Sher Krieger Events are presenting Sacha in "Sacha Sings Sinatra." Grammy-nominated Jazz recording artist Sacha Boutros will sing a selection of Sinatra songs including his biggest hits and other favorites from the extensive Frank Sinatra catalogue. San Diego-native Boutros and her fabulous musicians are set to dazzle the audience with a night of everything Francis Albert. This will be a fun and entertaining show by one of today's top Jazz artists as Sacha does it "her way!"
Sacha's September 2008 breakthrough album, "Simply Sacha" - a mix of standards and originals touching on jazz, Latin jazz, bossa nova, swing, and pop, and sung in five languages (English, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, and French) - showcased the singer's incredible musical and linguistic range, as well as compositional skills. She wrote half of the songs on this debut album, including one with four-time Grammy winner, Afro-Cuban pianist Chuchito Valdés. In addition to Valdés, the album featured plenty of other top-notch musicians, including Geoffrey Keezer, Red Holloway, Bob Magnusson, Mike Wofford (Sarah Vaughan's pianist), and Peter Sprague, and was honored to have Concord Recording Artist and Grammy-nominated Karrin Allyson providing the liner notes.
Sacha would return the favor for Holloway by appearing as a special guest on the saxophonist's album, "Something Old Something New: Introducing Sacha Boutros," in 2009, which resulted in a 2009 tour of Japan, winning even more fans.
"Simply Sacha" would become the vocalist's calling card to the world. It was the most downloaded Latin jazz release on emusic.com, was nominated for two Los Angeles Music Awards as "Best Latin Vocal" for her original song, "Amor Imposible," and "Best Vocal," hit number seven on the Japan music charts, enjoyed heavy airplay at Japanese Airlines, and earned a Grammy nod as best new jazz album. To this day, the album's considered among the top 10 jazz and Latin jazz albums of 2008 in the U.S. and Japan.
While visiting Hawaii two years later, Boutros recorded her first live album, "Sacha, Live In Hawaii" on January 28, 2010 at the Waikiki Hawaii Public Radio Atherton Studio. She would release the live album in September of 2011, in the midst of a major international tour from Bruxelles back to the islands.
"Sacha: NY After Dark," Sacha Boutros' long awaited third album was released in the Summer of 2013 in New York. Featuring New York Jazz greats Lewis Nash, Peter Washington, Terell Stafford, John di Martino and mixed by the legendary Al Schmitt at Capitol Records with a book to follow entitled, "NY After Dark." Her third album was named the top 13 albums of 2013 by The Examiner.com's national jazz critic Carol Banks Weber. It can be heard on Pandora, Music Choice, every major airline, Sirius and anywhere jazz is found.
