Turn It Around- Live (and sold out!) at Joe's Pub on April 10, 2018)
Watch an EPK video about the recording process of Soft Spot Of My Heart in Portugal and NYC and preview music from the record:
“American composer, songwriter and vocalist Eleanor Dubinsky uses various musical genres to express her finely-crafted songs. She has a delightful, engaging vocal style and her lyrics transmit her concern for the marginalized, longing and understanding of human beings from diverse cultures. On Soft Spot of My Heart you’ll find a captivating collection of songs that incorporate jazz, gospel, soul, Americana, pop and world music elements. Dubinsky sings in Spanish on two songs. “El sabor de la vida,” includes a fascinating mix of world percussion, soulful vocals and gospel. “Cuando voy a mi trabajo” features vocals in three languages and is the most world music-oriented track featuring global rhythms, great bass lines and acoustic guitars. There’s a great blues-infused climactic song titled “I Let Go,” in which Dubinsky adds cello, which is one of the instruments close to her heart.”
“So who ever talks about New York/Portugal mash ups? The heart wants what it wants and Dubinsky's heart wants some Portugal in it. Jazz takes a new tangent as this vocalist with touchy feely lyrics points the armchair traveler in a new direction. Fun stuff that passes the time in breezy fashion with style. ”
Upcoming Concerts And Events
Project 142 Presents: Frank Ponzio And Eleanor Dubinsky
Eleanor Dubinsky & Frank Ponzio perform original compositions from their new album, Soft Spot Of My Heart, a recording of original compositions. Says World Music Central: "Eleanor Dubinsky uses various musical genres to express her finely-crafted songs. She has a delightful, engaging vocal style and her lyrics transmit her concern for the marginalized, longing and understanding of human beings from diverse cultures. On Soft Spot of My Heart you’ll find a captivating collection of songs that incorporate jazz, gospel, soul, Americana, pop and world music elements."
From Jazz Weekly: “Female vocalist displaying charm & flexibility. Eleanor Dubinsky composes the wide ranging selection of tunes. Her voice has a folksy casualness to it, being confessional with Ponzio on “Free Again” & comfortingly poppish on “Turn It Around”. Sarah Abigael Stone’s cello adds drama to Dubinsky’s vocal climax on “I Let Go” whereas the nylon strings add droplets of dew on the tensile “Wait For You”. Some international lyrics as she gets Spanish on “El Sabor De La Vida” & Iberian for “Cuando Voy A Mi Trabajo” displaying a calm & assuring charm all throughout this alluring session.”
