ACCLAIMED JAZZ VOCALIST CHERYL BENTYNE’S SOLO SONDHEIM TRIBUTE – reARRANGEMENTS OF SHADOWS – RELEASING OCTOBER 6, 2017 ON ARTISTSHARE

On reARRANGEMENTS OF SHADOWS, veteran vocalist CHERYL BENTYNE reimagines songs by the iconic Broadway composer Stephen Sondheim. Widely known for her 38 years as part of the renowned vocal group The Manhattan Transfer, Bentyne is also a solo performer with over a dozen CDs under her own name as well as several collaborative projects with other singers and instrumentalists.

Sondheims lyrics are often di cult to sing outside the context of his shows. It takes an artist of Bentynes stature to create her own fully realized, personal context from Sondheims often di cult lyrics.

The ten tunes that comprise reARRANGEMENTS OF SHADOWS are mostly wellknown to theater a cionados. To create a fresh, new take for each song and an exciting, unpredictable dynamic for the entire project, she enlisted the help of several of the most innovative jazz arrangers around today. The diverse approaches of each arranger all coalesce into a uni ed soundscape by Bentynes melli uous vocal quality and incandescent emotional honesty.

reARRANGEMENTS OF SHADOWS will be available in stores and online everywhere.
