Melody Breyer-Grell's sophomore CD, "Fascinatin' Rhythms" is a follow-up to her award-winning debut CD, "The Right Time". Her first CD not only received glowing reviews but received the honor of being selected by the critic's poll of All About Jazz-New York (top five no order) Best vocal CD of 2004.

This new release for Rhombus,"Facinatin' Rhythms" is a meditation on the beauty and flexibility of the Gershwin's vocal music with a sprinkling of some of George's classical themes. "I was amazed at how 'modular' his music is" Melody says. "The popular and classic elements just seem to fuse together naturally."

The native New Yorker attended conservatories (Manhattan School of Music, The Curtis Institute) from the age of 12, but although passionate about classical music, felt that her destiny was elsewhere. Here it is!
