With the release of her fourth CD Photographs (MockTurtle Music), Mary Foster Conklin puts her unique personal spin on a collection of standards and contemporary tunes by Oscar Brown, Jr., Benny Carter, Lennon and McCartney, Johnny Mandel and Joni Mitchell, with five tunes by Beat poet Fran Landesman, best-known for “Spring Can Really Hang You Up The Most.” Mary's work was recently praised by the New York Times as "full of salt and vinegar -- with the intensity and tough humor of someone who might have lived on the bohemian fringe in the late ’40s and ’50s, when the word ‘hip’ meant something." www.maryfosterconklin.com


“Conklin is one of those singers that you want to feel like she’s singing just for you. A top notch set for when you’re ready to get off the beaten path.”
Chris Spector, Midwest Record

“Like her earlier recordings, this one is full of one magic moment after another. Her distinctive rich and dusky sound is completely captivating, conjuring up images of a film noir femme fatale. She is a supreme storyteller, and chooses songs that provide the kind of lyrics that lend themselves well to her approach.” Joe Lang Jersey Jazz
