Monika Herzig Acoustic Project

In the beginning, there were ‘The Chicks’. I encouraged Monika Herzig to pursue her love of Chick Corea’s music and dared to mention the play on words with his name. Her project is anything but tongue-in-cheek. She has assembled some seriously accomplished musicians, all of whom happen to be women. Not only can we be excited about the music they play, we can be thrilled about the important example they represent of high achieving women. Women are not the only ones that can feel lucky about what The Whole World in Her Hands has brought us. We all can.Grammy Winning Bassist, John Clayton

 

The Whole World in Her Hands is a musical collaboration under the leadership of pianist/ composer Monika Herzig featuring outstanding female jazz artists from around the globe and produced by Suzi Reynolds.  The music was recorded at Avatar Studios in New York City and released June 2016 on Whaling City Sound. The group completed an extensive Midwest/ East Coast Tour in September 2016 with subsequent second recording to be released Summer 2017. For more information on the project and sound/video samples follow this link , further info at www.monikaherzig.com
