JENNIFER LEE & TRIO
One of our favorite singers, Jennifer Lee returns for a new show!
Rooted in the straight-ahead jazz tradition, this San Francisco Bay Area-based vocalist/pianist/guitarist has developed a style all her own. With her warm, lovely voice, extraordinary musicality and hip sense of time, Jennifer brings each song uniquely to life. On an up-tempo tune, she really swings. On a ballad, she sings with a depth of emotion that pays homage to the music and the lyric. Whether on guitar or piano, Jennifer accompanies herself with a simple elegance and sweetness, while maintaining a deep and thrilling in-the-pocket groove.
Jennifer has a huge repertoire of standards, Brazilian bossa novas, little known classics, and original songs. She's recorded two full length CDs, has played at Yoshi's, and has been referred to as the Bay Area's Diana Krall. With her band Doce Brazil, Jennifer has played at the SF Jazz Summerfest and to sold out venues throughout California.She will be accompanied by Buca Necak on bass, Raul Ramirez on percussion, and David Udolf on keyboards.
