Barbara Fasano
"Busy Being Free" CD RELEASE CONCERT

with John di Martino, piano
Boris Kozlov, bass
Vince Cherico, drums

Barbara Fasano comes home to Birdland to celebrate the release of her fourth solo CD, “Busy Being Free." Ms. Fasano explores the complexities of love and the circles we all swirl within, singing “wise, literate songs about life in all its confusing wonder,” as author James Gavin writes in the CD’s liner notes. Gavin adds, “She seems incapable of singing an unintelligent or unmusical phrase.” The
title comes from Joni Mitchell’s “Cactus Tree”, and the CD takes a deep dive into a woman’s point of view, with other lyricists including Dorothy Fields, Carolyn Leigh and Nellie Lutcher.

Once again Ms. Fasano’s collaborator is the celebrated pianist/arranger John di Martino. Their previous CD, “Written In
The Stars” was praised in publications as diverse as Playbill and JazzTimes, and was awarded both the NY Bistro and MAC awards for Record of the Year.

Called “artistic, swinging and superbly entertaining” by revered jazz critic Ira Gitler, Ms. Fasano has headlined at Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, and concert halls and jazz festivals internationally.
