Erin Dickins The Manhattan Transfer original members reunite to join Erin Dickins on a CD project that combines her Love for Jazz with her Passion for Food. “Java Jive” Jazz for Foodies on Kickstarter
Hi All! My name is Erin Dickins. I am a Jazz vocalist and a passionate lover of good food. I created this Kickstarter campaign to ask you to join me and be part of my new project “Java Jive.” This is not just about making a CD, this project combines my love of Jazz with my passion for food. The CD will feature custom packaging (DVD Size) and include a 32 page color supplement book containing some of my favorite recipes – each inspired by the individual tracks on the CD. The tracks have been recorded and the recipes ready (YUM), however I need your help to finish the job.
As an award winning jazz vocalist and founding member of The Manhattan Transfer, Erin Dickins has enjoyed a remarkable career on stage and in the recording studio. After spending five years singing ensemble music with The Manhattan Transfer, she continued to expand her musical horizons, emerging as one of the top studio singers in New York. Dickins performed, toured and recorded with many notable artists including Leonard Cohen, Bette Midler, James Taylor, The Talking Heads, James Brown, Barry Manilow, Jaco Pastorius and Ashford & Simpson, to name but a few. Dickins continues to perform and record, enchanting audiences throughout the world.
In 2013, Erin will release a debut solo album on Dot Time Records entitled, Java Jive. Dickins returns to her roots with a remake of the original Ink Spots’ hit, which she first recorded on the Manhattan Transfer album Jukin’. “ I’ve always wanted to revisit this song,” says Dickins, “It’s like an old friend to me.” As title track, Java Jive will anchor the new release and will feature a guest vocal by Manhattan Transfer co-founder and longtime friend, Tim Hauser.
