Described as “nothing short of enchanting” by All About Jazz in 2015, AS IS is the musical union of jazz guitarist, Alan Schulman and jazz vocal stylist, Stacey Lynn Schulman. The couple – both on and off stage – have made a name for themselves for their imaginative re-expressions of 20th century song classics. AS IS takes audiences on an intimate journey through the world and words of songs long-forgotten – but newly created – with both the soulfulness and swing that’s accessible, memorable and highly musical. Alan Schulman is a noted jazz guitarist from Cincinnati, Ohio . A Thelonius Monk Competition Top-10 finalist, he has appeared with such noted jazz artists as Anita Baker, Herbie Hancock, Wynton Marsalis & Michael Feinstein. Stacey Schulman is a jazz vocal stylist and a native of the New York City area, performing in a variety of musical and theatrical roles since the age of nine. As an NYC studio singer, Stacey has had the privilege of singing on radio commercials, television series and movie soundtracks throughout her 20+ year musical career. AS IS released their sophomore album – Here’s to Life – this year with Grammy-nominated producer, James McKinney. The album blends the duo’s signature intimacy with the talents of special guest artists including Grammy-nominated drummer, Marcus Baylor (The Baylor Project, The Yellowjackets); acclaimed saxophonist, David Binney; Grammy-winning harmonica virtuoso, Gregoire Maret; vocalese talents Christie Dashiell and Kokayi, and members of the DC-based String Queens. The album debuted at #9 on Billboard’s Traditional Jazz Chart and climbed the Top 100 JazzWeek chart on radio stations across the U.S.
“Stacey’s singing voice, fresh and vibrant, casts a youthfully optimistic glow on the songs she sings. (As Is) finds new ways to approach the songs, ways that preserve the origins yet make out of them very personal statements.” – Bruce Crowther, Jazz Mostly
