Boston-bred, Cathy Segal Garcia loved jazz since the age of 5, when she would listen to Ella Fitzgerald, hanging around with her dad (sax player Mike Segal). Surrounded by a musical mother and sisters as well, and starting on flute at the age of 10, she was thrust into many different musical experiences on her way up. She and her older twin sisters started singing with her dad’s bands when she was 12. Those gigs and special choral groups and orchestras throughout her youth led her to Berklee College of Music for flute and Arranging & Composition, from 1972-1975. Loving the older style jazz from her family, she was now embracing her own choices...a mixture of cool jazz, modern jazz, and funk… …Miles Davis, Weather Report, Aretha Franklin, Modern Jazz Quartet, Chick Corea, Chaka Kahn, Bill Evans, Tower of Power, John Ambercrombie, etc., developing a love of rhythm, melody and harmony.
