New York Voices was born in the mid-1980s at upstate New York’s Ithaca College. The band is currently comprised of Darmon Meader, the band’s musical director and tenor singer, and his bandmates, baritone Peter Eldridge and dual sopranos Lauren Kinhan and Kim Nazarian. Reminiscing in Tempo, the quartet’s newest anniversary release and one of the most ambitious, accomplished undertakings from their entire catalog. Working with revered producer and longtime friend Elliot Scheiner, NYV takes a deep dive into the jazz canon, surfacing with standards by Cole Porter and Al Jolson and gems from the catalogues Chick Corea, Fred Hersch, and Duke Ellington, along with an Al Jarreau-penned lyrical treatment of Dave Brubeck. As always, the band looks beyond the jazz repertoire, rendering two inventive originals, classics by the Beatles and Ivan Lins, and even a pair of settings for the Cuban classical composer Ignacio Cervantes.
