Start your holiday weekend with lively Jazz celebrating the American Song performed by Carol Leven & Nick Moran the small Band with big sound!
Carol Leven and Nick Moran formed a jazz duo in 2014. Known as “The Small Band with the Big Sound,” their rich, layered, swinging music employs seven-string guitar, live looper, percussion and vocals. They perform a wide range of styles from the Great American Songbook to Burt Bacharach, from the Bossa Nova to subtle ballads and their duo has been actively performing at clubs, restaurants, vineyards, and private events in New York City and the northeast region.
Carol Leven has been described as “a wonderful talent and a really fine singer.” She began her career in musical theater, and studied at the New School. She was trained by some of the greatest vocal legends, including Mark Murphy and Sheila Jordan, who called her “A truly fine and original singer.” As a percussionist, Leven adds swinging rhythms to her repertoire of standards, Latin, folk, blues and pop standards.
New York native Nick Moran holds a BFA in Jazz Performance from the City College of New York where he was a protégé student of the great Ron Carter. Jazz Music writes: “His exceptional composing ability and fertile writer’s imagination are reflected in a playing style that is transparent in its articulation, logical, devoid of trite cliches.” In addition to guitar, Moran is a multi-instrumentalist, exploring folk, blues, and Irish music on mandolin, ukulele, fiddle and Irish bouzouki.
