An artist Louis Armstrong would admire immensely."--Michael Steinman, Jazz Lives Mara Kaye is that rare cross-species phenomenon, a Blues Amphibian. When others "sing the blues" as if offering an unusual small plate at the tapas bar, Mara has so immersed herself in the idiom that she goes down to the bottom and doesn't need air until the show is over. She's a modernist rather than a museum piece: her creations can be darkly mournful, savagely vengeful, or gleefully erotic, but they are always leavened with Brooklyn spice. Think 1928 Bessie Smith or 1937 Billie Holiday leavened with street smarts. Her heart is in her music, and there is no pretense, no distance, as audiences from here to Russia, at Joe's Pub and Brooklyn dives have found out."–Michael Steinman, Jazz Lives
