Acclaimed New York Cabaret artist and concert performer Minda Larsen interprets the music of Johnny Mercer, including his signature standards such as “Goody Goody,” “Skylark,” “Too Marvelous For Words,” and “Moon River.” Born and raised in Savannah, Georgia, Mercer’s work, while spanning generations and genres, always maintained its uniquely American voice. Trav’lin’ Light celebrates Johnny’s roots in the South, his departure from it to New York and Hollywood and his struggle to maintain a balance between the two. Also born and bred in the South, Larsen relates her own experience of being an “outsider in the big city” to the themes found in the Johnny Mercer songbook.
