After her successful New York City début, Mexican musical theatre and jazz superstar Florencia Cuenca came back to The Metropolitan Room with her project “The New Standards.” The show was arranged and music directed by musical theatre composer and Florencia’s husband, Jaime Lozano.

Florencia and Jaime have created what they called The New Standards taking songs from contemporary musicals such as Raisin, Follies, Pippin, The Color Purple, among others, and making their very own versions with eclectic and latin jazz influenced arrangements by Jesus Altamira and Jaime Lozano.

Her album “Aquí – Los Nuevos Standards” (I’m Here – The New Standards) has been described as a “one of the most uniques cover albums of recent memory” and a “highly-addictive disc” for BwayTunes.com.

With her sultry voice Jason Robert Brown, Stephen Sondheim, Frank Wildhorn, Stephen Schwartz, Gary Geld and Peter Udell, Judd Woldin and Robert Brittan, Andrew Lloyd Webber among others, were the composers chosen and her voice shines on them all.

The best musicians in the country, under the direction of Jaime Lozano were responsible for giving a twist to these beautiful songs, which combines musical theater and jazz.

With musical arrangements by Jaime Lozano and Jesus Altamira, Addison Frei – piano, Mark Van Ziegle – bass, Ross Pederson – drums and Ole Mathisen – saxophone the musical numbers were enhanced and given a new take.

Florencia has had a lengthy career on stage and on screen in Mexico. She has garnered praised from both critics and fans alike.

Keep your eyes on the lookout for this talented musician and artist.
