Leftover Dreams is Patrice Haan and Tony Marcus singing gems of the great American songbook with stunning harmonies and burnished accompaniment. Tony Marcus is a veteran of such groups as Cats & Jammers and the Cheap Suit Serenaders and plays guitar with style and wit while singing in a voice that has been called 'The definition of mellifluous'. Patrice Haan's voice has been described as a 'velvety alto/tenor', and her intimate delivery of lyrics never fails to reach audiences. This recording features some numbers with just voices and a guitar, and others with bass and clarinet (legendary San Francisco player Bill Napier), the group presents a sampling of the best of the classic songs of the best standards of the 1920s through the 1950s mixed with lesser known delights that haven't seen the light of day for decades. As for the playing-'Marcus spins out dazzling and emotionally evocative solos' (Derk Richardson again). Leftover Dreams is also the title of their new CD on the Tuxedo label. Here ís a capsule review by Richard Hadlock, author of Jazz Masters of the Twenties, and host of the radio show The Annals of Jazz: Wonderful songs sung well with pleasing accompaniment and fine harmonies-almost a forgotten art. Singers Patrice Haan and Tony Marcus (also an ace guitarist) do something unusual: they treat often neglected popular songs with respect, restraint and unerring good taste - sans ring-a-ding, scoobie doobie or premeditated histrionics. Perhaps there IS hope! Tony Marcus and Patrice Haan have created a warm, intimate, entertaining and engaging piece of work in this new CD. Gorgeous vocals'uperb swinging instrumental accompaniment all blend seamlessly with the familiar and not-so-familiar jazz standards. Leftover Dreams is simply a gem.
