” ‘Small World’ finds Chapman once again backed by a stellar cast of some of the country’s finest musicians, putting an individual spin on tunes that first came to light in classic Hollywood films. While Chapman can hold her own with any singer who has come before, where pipes are concerned, it’s just that slight hint of an accent in her voice that gives her something every vocalist wants (and should have) — a sound unmistakably her own. Traditional jazz is alive and very well in her hands.” (Mark Rheaume, CBC Radio)
Romanian-born Monica Chapman is an exciting jazz vocalist whose music is heard internationally. She released two critically acclaimed albums, “But Beautiful”(2013) and “P.S. I Love You” (2015) to very enthusiastic reviews, featured on major radio shows worldwide.
Her third and latest critically-praised CD “Small World” (2017 ) is now available on iTunes, and can be heard on BBC, CBC’s ‘Tonic’, and was featured on JAZZ.FM91′s “First Listen” with Brad Barker. She also released a well-received music video entitled “Piel Canela” that she recorded in Spanish for her new album.
This evening’s singing star MONICA CHAPMAN features BARTOSZ HADALA on piano, JORDAN O’CONNOR on bass, and CHRIS WALLACE on drums, entertaining in the up-close-and-personal ambience of the Home Smith Bar.
