An Evening with Jonathan Karrant
7:30pm doors / 8pm show
Audiences and critics have characterized Jonathan Karrant as a great interpreter of song, a storyteller, a singer who brings music and lyric alive. Some refer to Karrant as an amazing song-stylist who sings from the American songbook, an entertainer on his way to international success. Others say he paints a picture, he presents a mood and captivates a room through song. While only still in his twenties, he seems to have an innate and inside connection with music writers of the past, masters like Cole Porter (they share the same birthday), George Gershwin, Irving Berlin, and Johnny Mercer, to mention a few.
Jonathan's album, On and On hit #4 in jazz charts. He has received honors thoughout the states including; the 2014 New York City Jazz Cabaret Honors and, in 2015, he was voted Best Singer for the Bravo California Awards. Also, in 2015 Jonathan was named one of the top 12 rising jazz vocalists in New York. He has study the art of performance under the direction of Marilyn Maye and Kurt Elling.
A voice, romantic without being cloying, warm but not forced, Karrant carries these songs with an emotional weight that make it seem at times as if he had written them himself. Just listen to his jazzy makeover of the Beatles' eternally beautiful "In My Life" and hear the yearning in his singing. Jazz Corner
"Jonathan Karrant works straight out of the American songbook with a level of manly confidence and jazz suave and bonhomie that was patented by Mel Torme himself." -The Reader magazine
