Video: Smooth sounds by Carrie Marshall

The track “Twelve Trinity Square” appears on Charlotte-based singer-songwriter Carrie Marshall’s album “Home.”

In “Home” she’s created a collection of originals that play like standards. It’s a versatile record that riffs on the Andrews Sisters and Burt Bacharach as well as the contemporary jazz of Diana Krall (minus the brass and smoke) or Norah Jones filtered through 1970s AM pop singers like Carly Simon, Carole King, and pre-“Grease” Olivia Newton John. The studio is stacked with premier players like drummer Jim Brock, who doubles as producer, Van Sachs, Terry Peoples, and Mark Stallings.

Live, Marshall can do blues, play the country-leaning singer-songwriter, or recreate the jazz-pop standards feel of “Home.” Luckily there’s plenty of chances to catch her live. She plays North Main Wines in Mooresville Sept. 19 with Brad Bailey. On Saturday Sept. 20, she’s with her trio uptown at the Ritz-Carlton.

On Tuesday she plays the Music Box Lunch series at Romare Bearden Park. She’s also back at the Ritz-Carlton Saturday Sept. 27.
