In her 4th album release, vocalist/violinist Calabria Foti wanted to make a record like her musical heroes did back in the day; that is, with a big orchestra and legendary arrangers on the podium in an iconic Hollywood recording studio. Ms. Foti says, “This is the most expansive project I have ever done, and at the same time, it’s the most intimate and personal. I recorded at Capitol Records with a full orchestra, singing some of the most endearing, sentimental songs ever written, about my devotion to the ones I love. This album is a full production tear-jerker!”

With a stunning array of ballads and up-tempo tunes, Calabria Foti displays her talents as violin soloist, scat singer, songwriter, and among interpreters of the Great American Songbook, one of the finest storytellers of our time. Prelude To A Kiss is replete with grand, sweeping orchestrations from celebrated arrangers, and small band swingers featuring a stellar ensemble of musical greats.

This album was meticulously recorded, mixed and mastered with extreme care taken to preserve the nuances of the audio signal: from total AC power conditioning, through custom cabling, very high-end converters, digital room correction, custom $35K monitoring environment, in order to capture every detail of these exquisite performances.
