One Planet Jazz, Direct From The Heart

One Planet Jazz is a collection of singer songwriters in the tradition of Tin Pan Alley. This release features some of their original material. Thoughtful and fun, with an eye toward the planet, and love and life. Steve Marx grew up in Los Angeles, the grandson of songwriter Gus Kahn (“Makin’ Whoopee,” “It Had to be You”) and Groucho Marx. His first professional song, a Kingston Trio parody, was performed on the New Steve Allen Show. Ellen Marx in a previous incarnation earned a national reputation for her banjo playing, now she has turned to jazz and songwriting, after having studied composition, piano and vocal jazz improvisation. Miles Feinstein grew up in Englewood, NJ, and was raised listening to the music of Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Fats Waller, and Earl Hines.
