Award-winning Alma Micic fuses jazz past and future in debut album

November 8, 2004 (New York, NY) On November 16, CTA Records will release "Introducing Alma", a 10-track debut album by jazz vocalist and lyricist Alma Micic, whose talent has already made her recipient of prestigious prizes like the BMG Jazz Club Award and the Cleo Laine Award for Outstanding Musicianship.

Micic’s career has been marked by an early start. Born in Belgrade, at 16 she was already performing as the lead vocalist of the Belgrade Radio Big Band and by the time she turned 20 she had performed at jazz festivals all over Europe. But it is in the U.S. that Micic, a Cum Laude graduate from Berklee College of Music in Boston, has truly found fertile grounds to develop her style, described by Bob Young of the Boston Herald as "music that nods to the past and looks to the future."

In "Introducing Alma", Alma Micic (voice and arrangements) is accompanied by Brandon McCune (piano), Sean Conly (acoustic bass) and Israel Bannerman (drums).
