Our dynamic jazz duo Haley Reinhart and Casey Abrams reunited last weekend to play at the 22nd Annual Jazz in the Pines festival in Casey’s hometown of Idyllwild, California.

The youthful Reinhart elevated the set from a fun reunion of friends to something very special with original material, the torch song, “Hey Baby, Ain’t I Good To You” and some beautiful harmonies with Casey. Their set was promoted as a showcase of a new type of jazz in which Casey and Haley would re-arrange contemporary pop hits in a ’20s and ’30s style, but they only did that on Meghan Treynor’s “All About That Bass,” which has an old-timey feel anyway. I’d love to see more of that since their version of that song was infectious.

The estimated crowd size was around 3,000 people.  One lucky fan got to keep their setlist, which included songs such as “Never Knew What Love Could Do”, “Stuck in London”, “With a Little Help from My Friends”, “You Were There”, “Moanin'”, “My Cake”, “Better”, “Creep”, “Stacy’s Mom”, “Can’t Find My Way Home”, and many more!

Haley Reinhart & Casey Abrams Set to Play Main Stage at Jazz in the Pines

Musical soulmates Haley Reinhart and Casey Abrams will be reuniting in Casey’s hometown of Idyllwild, California to play at a local jazz festival “Jazz in the Pines” on Sunday, August 16th 2015.

“Likewise Casey Abrams, who is a real rising star, and Haley Reinhart, his compatriot, who are part of this collective post-modern jukebox. They are a group of young musicians, 20-somethings, who have stumbled upon this really interesting style wherein they take popular music — music by Miley Cyrus, Taylor Swift, Beyonce and Meghan Trainor — and rearrange it. They re-appropriate it into 1920s and ’30s swing, and they are just blowing up on the Internet. They are really ushering in what I would say is a new generation of jazz enthusiasts — young people who are really into it. So we’re necessarily trying to bridge that generation gap. This is something I would suggest is the direction of the festival.”
