Join Broadway veteran, vocalist Wren Marie and her sizzling ensemble on a tropical journey as they weave a retro-world jazz tapestry with the yarns of the greatest musical icons of the Great American and Global songbooks. Wren’s sultry vocals are wrapped in gold with the hot-as-fire work of pianist Tomoko Ohno, bassist Andrea Veneziani, percussionist Rogerio Boccato, and flutist Yael Archer (“Kat”). On the bill are tunes by Broadway’s beloved composers Cole Porter, Rodgers & Hammerstein, Lerner and Lowe, Arthur Schwartz, Ellis/Grey, Bronislau Kaper, Charles Strouse, Youmans, and global icons Joe Hisaishi (Japan) and Pixinguinha (Brazil). Wren and her Audible World Project will sail the seven seas with freshly reimagined songbook favorites embraced by samba and bolero rhythms, and a collection of timeless global melodies that will sparkle anew in the intimacy of the Metropolitan Room.

“Wren Marie Harrington delivers one of the most luscious recordings of the year. Her impeccable selection of songs vary from cool jazz to sizzling Latin gems. Her vocals are full, fresh, rich and emotive. Excellently produced and played by a stellar group of musicians, LIGHT TRAVELS is the perfect summer album, but in any season, it is light years ahead of the competition.” – Hector Lugo, iTunes
