Tapped by Rub?n Blades as a guest vocalist on his 2003 GRAMMY Award«-winning album Mundo, Luba Mason delivered a rendition of the Irish classic "Danny Boy" that was hailed as "celestial" by the LA Times and "soaring" by the Boston Globe.Theatregoers already knew Luba from her starring roles on Broadway in Jekyll and Hyde, Paul Simon's Capeman, and How to Succeed, but Mundo opened up a whole new audience. Her performance left fans thirsting for more; now Luba steps into the spotlight with her astonishing debut album, Collage. Continuing her collaboration with Rub?n Blades, who helped shape the repertoire and arrangements here (and who joins her for a soaring rendition of Johnny Nash's classic "I Can See Clearly Now"), and beginning a new partnership with legendary producer Jeffrey Lesser (Streisand's Lazy Afternoon, among others), Luba's sensuous and soaring voice takes on pop classics by everyone from George Harrison to Neil Diamond to Van Morrison. An electrifying blend of Latin, pop, jazz, theatre and folk, it's a vocal CD for the new millennium. While publicizing the album this fall, Luba is also starring in the lead role of Bithia in the American premiere of The Ten Commandments, which opens at the Kodak Theatre in Los Angeles on September 27th in anticipation of a Broadway premiere in the spring of 2005. Songs Include: Moondance, The Calm Before the Storm, Look of Love, Six of Azimuth, Embroidered, I Can See Clearly Now (featuring Rub?n Blades), Cherry, Cherry, Shamed into Love, Don't Shoot the Hooey to Me Louie, The Riddle Song, Old English Folk Song, I Need You, Mr. Bojangles, Take Me Home, Motherland.
