Jazz Band with Vocal Arrangements from
The Marilyn Harris ROUND TRIP Collection

"Marilyn Harris knows how to write songs - clever songs, knowing songs, novel songs, heartfelt songs...What you may NOT know is that Mark Wolfram, her onstage-offstage partner, writes big, colorful arrangements: he mines the jazz orchestra for the range of colors and textures that Harris' songs inhabit so well. Blend in the all-star big band you hear here, alloyed by the hand-picked guest soloists, and how can you lose?"
- Neil Tesser, Co-host "Listen Here!"

In 2006 Marilyn Harris released her Big Band Jazz Vocal CD "Round Trip" on Wrightwood Records. It featured Marilyn singing 10 of her original songs (backed by The L. A.

WAY OUT HERE IN THE COUNTRY

COOL
(Music & Lyrics by Marilyn Harris & Mark Winkler)

This vocal duet bops along with swingin' shouts, subtle muted brass figures and cool woodwind choir interjections.
