Rebecca Sayre Live at the Workshop
On Saturday, November 9 at 8pm were delighted to welcome to the Jazz Cave one of NJWs own, vocalist Rebecca Sayre. Joining her will be Will Barrow (piano), Charlie Chadwick (bass), and Chris Brown (drums).
Rebeccas singing career began to take off with her stint as vocalist for acclaimed swing band BadaBing BadaBoom. One of NJWs first students, she took every class available, to hone her jazz vocal chops. Her debut CD, This Is Always, featured a backing band including Beegie Adair, Pat Bergeson, Denis Solee & Jeff Coffin. The CD reached the Top 50 in the JazzWeek Album charts. Inspired by the likes of Eddie Jefferson and John Hendricks, Rebecca wrote a vocalese to the Quincy Jones composition Count Em, a hit for The Count Basie Orchestra. The composition was renamed Homecoming and recorded by Nashvilles 3rdCoast Vocals.
Rebecca was described by the Nashville Scene as one of Nashvilles premier jazz vocalists among the citys jazz elite. An elegant stylist with a clear tone and an easy sense of swing
An accomplished songwriter as well, Rebeccas compositions are informed by her jazz aesthetic. She released a CD of original compositions, New Girl, in 2008, and recently released an EP, Play.
