Sherri Roberts CD Release "Anybodys Spring"
When you listen to Sherri's thoughtful way with a vocal line, or her vibrant sense of swing, or her effortless embodiment of a song's emotion . . . well, a certain starry-eyed enchantment is inevitable. And why not? It's a response to Sherri's own affection for her songs. - Drew Wheeler, liner notes: The Sky Could Send You
Sherri Roberts was raised in Atlanta, Georgia and received a B.A. in theatre from Antioch College in Ohio. It was there she was first introduced to jazz studies - its history and repertoire - as well as early Renaissance choral music and the 20th Century avant-garde.
Upon relocating to San Francisco, she became involved in both theatre performance and management, while never abandoning her love of singing and her growing interest in jazz.
Sherri has four recordings as a leader and a fifth, Anybodys Spring, a collection of both familiar and rare songs about Springtime accompanied by a bi-coastal rhythm section of David Udolf, Harvie S, Akira Tana and Sheryl Bailey, will be released in March 2017. This newest recording is preceded by Lovely Days (January 2013,) a duo session for Blue House Recordings/Pacific Coast Jazz, showcasing the brilliant but little documented pianist Bliss Rodriguez. Dan Bilawsky of All About Jazz describes Lovely Days as delightful and ... a recording that is at once both intimate and wholly open.
"Her warm and relaxed voice fits well into the lazy swinging groove of Its Anybodys Spring, while piano and bass chime to a flowing waltz as Roberts glistens on Spring Sprang Sprung ... An excellent weather report!
George Harris, Jazz Weekly
