karen mal - singer / songwriter / mandolinist

Lilt? Trill? Oh yes!

I live by the sea and I write poetry - Karen's voice is the sea, it is the poetry.

I heard her sing Stars Fell on Alabama at a friend's house in Maine - as good as I've ever heard the song sung - a favorite of mine.

I am waiting for her to do jazz anthems and the American songbook - Stars Fell on Alabama of course, I Cover the Waterfront, How High the Moon, and so on.

Take a look at The Space Between and House of Wills (both CDs are available on iTunes).

I heard her sing On the Sunny Side of the Street on House of Wills (Will Taylor & Strings Attached) - as good as I've ever heard the song sung - another favorite of mine.

& Suitcase Full of Memories on The Space Between.

Both CDs highly recommended.

More projects in the works.  Keep a jazz ear out for Karen Mal.

Note: Originally from Connecticut, Karen now lives in Austin, Texas.

le parasole oil painting by jean d...

they're out of the water...

Sea circles & stars
Long distances
,
Long distances
,
Long hearts
,
But it doesn't look like the boats are going to Mexico this winter
They're out of the water
Hulls scraped & painted ready to wrap
.
Moon & stars a whisper of wind
,
But it doesn't look like the boats are going to Mexico this winter

this a.m. ...

Balmy
Windy
The rosa rugosa rushes
A gulp now mightily
The pinwheels spin
& so do
The purple flowers the blackbird is in
Windy
Balmy

a perfect backcloth...

Early
This morning the sky is black
A Heaven filled with needles
Paper lights
Purple orange sea blue
Green
Paper lights
A perfect backcloth
On
Which
To paint perfect things
See perfect things
Feel
Perfect things

It's a flannel morning
Boats leaving the harbors
Sails rippling full
Breezes & song
Things

Bumps
On
The
Way

It's a flannel morning

in the mirrors...

In the mirrors
Joy & you
Kerouac poetry rivers long staircases
Violins trombones drums & dreams
In the mirrors
Looo dee lah
In the mirrors
The road
A healthy berry salad
Sweet & tea
Imagine
Singing
Out to the room
In the mirrors
Looo dee lah
In the mirrors

mornings are poems...

Mornings are poems
Every morning a poem
Here
&
Away
Near the shore
Near the winter
Flocks & horses pretty
Birds in a meadow
Flying
From February & April & June & December
oh

Thoop thoop thoop thoop

fall oil painting by jean d hommage to geo dibble...

entrance...

Entrance
Willowy morning
Silence
Silent poses ascending a staircase
A mountain path
Tall grasses
Pedestals
Plateaus ocean seas
Willowy morning awake
Look
Miles to go
.
See
The Matisse church in the drizzle
,
The red maples in October

rain...

A yawing breeze
Wobbly
A lone seagull
The pinwheel turns
Side to side

The flowers are quiet

Rain
