Leftover DreamsWarning: the mellifluous outfit Leftover Dreams plucks heartstrings and sets spirits soaring with its evocative renditions of carefully chosen gems from the "great American songbook." Tony Marcus is a dazzling violin and guitar soloist and a superb vocalist who has been bringing down the house for years in ineffably dapper performances with Cats & Jammers and the Cheap Suit Serenaders. His singing partner, the lovely Patrice Haan, adds her rich, sultry voice and warm charisma. With Jeff Sanford accompanying them on sax and clarinet, Tony and Patrice apply their artful talents to standards (and not-so-standards) from the golden age of American song, from jumping swing numbers to unabashedly romantic love songs that may actually cause audience members to swoon. As on their most recent CD, We'll Take Romance, the group throws in the occasional quirky original tune, just to spice things up.

With a recent appearance on NPR’s All Songs Considered (where the group won the weekly listeners’ poll with their rendition of “Teach Me Tonight”), the outfit continues to turn heads with its evocative renditions of carefully chosen gems. Richard Hadlock, host of the radio show The Annals of Jazz, praised Leftover Dreams for “doing something unusual: they treat often neglected popular songs with respect, restraint, and unerring good taste.”
