Cathy Segal-Garcia & Yoonseung Cho: Bohemian

Bohemian? Well, I guess so, but Rudolfo and Mimi it definitely ISN’T. Vocalist Cathy Segal-Garcia (CSG from here out) and pianist Yoonseung Cho collaborate for a mix of originals and jazz tunes to which CSG has added lyrics. There are some clever ditties, such as Bob Moses’ “Embraceable Jew” and her own “The Ironic Waltz,” but the fragility of her birchwood voice make the readings of Pat Metheny’s “Her Family” or Sting’s “Fragile” almost eerie. It’s like watching someone walk along a chalk line, wondering if they’re going to tip over.
