Critically acclaimed jazz and blues singer/composer Eileen Howard will release her fifth CD, Big City Love, an eclectic musical tribute to love in, and for, the city.

This intensely personal collection of jazz, funk and blues includes four originals composed and arranged by Howard, each a reflection on her 37 year journey of love with her husband, George Howard. Originally a transplant from Ohio, who has lived all over the world, she selected songs on the album to celebrate her adopted city of New York. Howard conceived and arranged a funky version of the classic Kander and Ebb standard, “New York, New York." Her unique arrangement of Roger and Hart’s “Manhattan," using translations of some of its words, is a tribute to the waves of immigrants who wanted to ‘take Manhattan’. Other songs include, “I’ll Take it All," a musical theater composition by up-and-coming New York composers Sam Carner and Derek Gregor. Till Now is a world premier by Nashville composer Thomas O’Connell. “Big City" and “Sunday in New York" were arranged by internationally recognized music director, composer and artist, Michael Raye, who also plays keyboard on the album and was the recording and mixing engineer.

Other talented personnel on the album include Nat Janoff on guitar, Eddy Khaimovich on bass, Darrell Smith on drums, Daniel Bennett on flute and sax, and Matthew Owens on trumpet.

Jazz Journalist, Marcia Hillman, wrote about Big City Love, “With this latest offering, Eileen Howard continues to reach her listening audience with her storytelling ability by singing from the heart with her powerful, melodious voice.” Scott Yanow, L.A. Jazz Scene, called Howard a “very appealing singer with a powerful voice and a joyful personality” and “a singer well worth discovering.” Edward Blanco said, “This lady can definitely sing up a storm with a voice that allows her to reach and hit the high notes with effortless ease...lush velvet voice. A very impressive vocal performance.” Blues Music said: “She harnesses the genre as one of those rare entertainers with the sensitivity and witty flair to deeply evoke the human sensibility.” Deejay Fritz “The Night Owl” called her “One of the most creative and swingin’ singers ever to vocalize on the local jazz scene.” And music review blog, “Wildys World” said, “Eileen Howard sings like a Diva, vamps like a Rat-Pack veteran and generally entertains like few others can...” Her 25-year career as an actress and singer has been studded with awards for musical performance and acting.

Howard previously released a live recording of her sold out “Blues Cabaret” called Blues in the Green Room, which has been praised by music reviewers, two critically acclaimed jazz CD’s, and an eclectic CD of spiritual tunes of her own composition.
