Strong Jeanne Lee influence on this cut.

 

People pay good money to hear MUCH worse than this. 

U don't know anything about singing. If you don't like this...

I like them too I had in mind Chicago area singers who just sing jazz songs but have no real feel for the music...

This lady sings jazz standards and many other types of songs. She is an excellent swing big band singer but is mostly doing other things these days.

Ah, nice! I didn't know her. Thank you for pointing her out. She plays multiple instruments I see, autoharp included. I looked into one some time ago but they are quite expensive, so I didn't get one yet.  I see Efraïm among her sidemen. He's a great player. I talked to him when he was playing in Enkhuizen last year.

Ah, with my good friend Robert Rook on piano :) This singer is from Vilnius, Lithuania.

She studied 'Masters of Jazz Singing' and 'Performance' at the Amsterdam Conservatory and has a Bachelor's Degree in Jazz Vocals, Music Theory, Jazz Flute studied at the Royal Conservatory. And some more...

This pianist/singer sings also standards, etc., in her own way. Here together with pianist Bert van den Brink.

FWIW, some of my favorite vocalists on the scene today are Sarah Elizabeth Charles in NYC and Nicole Saphos (also a bassist), Lena Seikaly and Danielle Wertz in DC. The latter two were both semifinalists in the last Monk competition, but did not make the finals, which I found baffling.
