Ladies of Jazz Concert, San Jose, CA
(Published: October 21, 2010)

Don't miss a fun filled evening with the Ladies of Jazz Singer/Songwriters Leanne Weatherly, Cathi Walkup, Jennifer Lee and Melissa Dinwiddie. All four Bay Area ladies will perform their own original material from comical swing to beautiful, touching ballads with a jazz trio backing them up. This show was so popular it completely sold out when they performed in Santa Clara this summer.

Jennifer Lee is a vocalist/pianist/guitarist with a warm, lovely voice, extraordinary musicality, and hip sense of time. 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's newest recording, Quiet Joy is an exciting mix of originals, standards, and Brazilian songs. Drummer / Grammy-nominated producer Bud Spangler calls the CD "a joy from start to finish." Both Quiet Joy and Jennifer's previous recording Jaywalkin' (named "finest debut of the year, big label or small" by Dan McClenaghan of All About Jazz) are collaborations with San Diego-based guitarist Peter Sprague, Jennifer's co-arranger/co-producer and founder of SBE Records.

Jazz singer/songwriter Melissa Dinwiddie does more than just sing; she tells stories in song. Whether she's crooning jazz standards or modern original compositions ("Online Dating Blues" and "He's Just Not That Into You" are audience favorites), she delights listeners with her velvety voice and engaging delivery. She's sexy and sassy, presenting modern jazz and blues with a sardonic twist.

Vocalist/lyricist/composer Cathi Walkup has been called "the thinking person's jazz singer" for her choice of lyric driven songs, "a natural comedian" for her wit and ease on-stage, and "an important bop oriented singer, who is also an excellent lyricist" by jazz writer Scott Yanow in his new book "The Jazz Singers, The Ultimate Guide"

"Leanne Weatherly is the next major voice to watch out for- she's got clarity, passion, and fun arrangements that anyone would enjoy, all wrapped up in a very bright future," says Concord Music Group Artist Taylor Eigsti. As a result, Leanne has had the pleasure of singing with such jazz greats as Benny Green and has opened shows for legendary drummer, Louie Bellson. Bellson stated, "She has a definite and appealing sound that will produce many fans for her."

The group was a featured in recent San Jose Mercury News article . The Ladies of Jazz Singer/Songwriter show in Santa Clara was a hit last July. The show completely sold out and it was standing room only. Following that success, the next show will be at the Theater on San Pedro Square in San Jose.
