Mary Ann Hurst, vocals: bio notes under 'Wishing on a Star' CD, also on cdbaby.com. 'Jazzz...d' was recorded in Hawaii with these stellar Honolulu-based musicians: Kit Ebersbach: arranger, co-producer, keyboards; produces albums in the vein of Martin Denny's 'Exotica' sound -- 'Don Tiki' album concepts Stephen Jones (bass), of Steve Jones Collective Bryan Kessler, 2005 Grammy award-winning guitarist. Jeff Peterson, 2005 Grammy award-winning guitarist from Maui. Darryl Pellegrini, drums, popular 'transplant' from jazz/Broadway theatre life of New York to Honolulu. Tim Tsukiyama, saxophone, key member of award-winning Honolulu Jazz Quartet. Noel Okimoto, highly respected and established percussionist in the jazz world. DeShannon Higa, virtuoso jazz trumpet/ flugelhorn player, rotates between New York and Honolulu. Review from All About Jazz: 'Hurst has succeeded in finding some fine obscurities, like "In My Own Little Corner," from the Rodgers & Hammerstein musical Cinderella, and "I Can't Say No," with a verse from Oklahoma. The Lieber & Stoller piece "Some Cats Know," originally written for The Coasters, is almost entirely done nowadays as a Peggy Lee tribute, and Hurst brings in all the cool sophistication that the song requires. The ballad "Some Other Time," from the Comden-Green-Bernstein musical On the Town, is always a pleasure to hear in the right hands.' '... a well-chosen group of songs, including two medleys, with an aggregate group of eight musicians [with] plenty of opportunities for the individual musicians to shine...for example Higa's atmospheric flugelhorn accompaniment on "In My Own Little Corner." The group begins "On A Slow Boat To China" with a faux Asian motif and then jettisons it for a medium bounce that features nice vibes work by Noel Okimoto...'
