Jonathan Karrant & Joshua White

Joseph Lang of Jersey Jazz reviews Jonathan Karrant & Joshua White’s “Shadows Fall.” Lang says; “The current world of jazz-oriented vocalists is dominated by female singers, but sprinkled in are some gentlemen who deserve attention. Among them is Los Angeles-based JONATHAN KARRANT who has just released his third album, Shadows Fall (Self-Produced), a duo set with pianist JOSHUA WHITE. He has chosen an interesting mix of songs, mostly standards like “My Romance,” “Detour Ahead,” “Lush Life” and “My One and Only Love;” some contemporary songs, “Simply the Best,” “I Try” and “Your Smiling Face;” plus a couple of jazz tunes, Mose Allison’s “Stop This World” and Abbey Lincoln’s “Being Me.” Karrant brings his own vision to each of the selections, with a jazz feeling always present. He has a smooth baritone that lies easy on your ears. White provides solid backing for Karrant, always an important element, but like a good accompanist, not calling attention to himself in his supporting role. It is good to hear a fresh voice among the male contributors to the vocal jazz scene. ”

Since 1988 Kari-On Productions has helped artists get an even footing in the industry through jazz promotion in the genres of Jazz, World & Latin Jazz through Jazz Radio and Publicity. Why do we do both, because they compliment each other, and we care about fiscal longevity for the artist.
