Chaise Lounge performs a blend of music that sounds like it was recorded at Capitol Recording Studios in 1962 and somehow found its way to today’s pop charts. You might call it “Early Stereo.” Or perhaps Lounge with a capital “L.” Or maybe just plain enjoyable. It is the combination of five of the Washington area’s top jazz musicians play... показать целикомing sparkling arrangements of standards and original tunes and featuring the soft, luminous vocals of Marilyn Older. Her voice is truly an American Original. An evening spent with her is an evening spent in the warm, inviting glow of one of the most wonderful voices singing in America right now.

With a sound that captures all the elegance, exuberance and flamboyance of the swinging ‘60s, Chaise Lounge delivers music that is high on style and sophistication. This Washington DC based ensemble of six accomplished musicians performs a groovy hybrid of pop-influenced jazz and swing that seems to both embody another era and belong to the present moment. Members playfully describe the group’s style as “ music that sounds like it was recorded at Capitol Recording Studios in 1962”, “early stereo” or “ perhaps lounge with a capital ‘L”.
Composed of some of the top jazz musicians in the Washington DC area, the group met in 1998 at a recording session hosted by film composer Charlie Barnett. Their musical chemistry was instantaneous. Together they achieve an almost orchestral sound by combining bass, drums, trombone, electric guitar and sax while vocalist Marilyn Older gives voice to the band’s urbane, story-like lyrics, Her whispery voice sparkles against the band’s red-hot flights and seamless harmonic twists. The sextet’s brilliantly rearranged pop tunes and original compositions have a theatrical, near-cinematic quality. Their covers run the gamut from iconic standards like “That Old Black Magic” and “Girl Talk” to the Talking Heads’ “Burning Down The House”. Their lush and vibrant originals are teasingly playful, charming audiences with intelligently written lyrics that are full of sensitivity and humor. Chaise Lounge plays a glamorous soundtrack to a dazzlingly re-imagined ‘60s that we wish existed.
