Jazz vocalist Judy Wexler performs at Feinsteins at the Loews Regency in New York City for two nights only on Thursday, August 13th and Friday, August 14th.
Hailed by JazzTimes as "one of the most focused, unpretentious, no-nonsense, bop-oriented jazz singers around," Judy Wexler's debut CD, Easy on the Heart, showcases her expressive voice and gift for storytelling. Her 2008 release, Dreams & Shadows, which climbed to #2 on the USA jazz chart, cements her reputation for the craftsmanship and emotional immediacy of her singing, while displaying her knack for compiling a spirited, cliché-free repertoire. Judy was profiled by Susan Stamberg for NPR Weekend Edition, who said, "based on the evidence of her new second album, "Dreams & Shadows," Judy Wexler can sing almost anything."
Judy showcases her impeccable technique, persuasive sense of swing, lustrous, fine-grained voice, and incisive musical intelligence to a magpie repertoire ranging from Irving Berlin and Jerome Kern to Oscar Brown Jr., Bob Dylan, Burt Bacharach and Abbey Lincoln. She is joined by Jeff Colella on piano, Bill Moring on bass, and Anthony Pinciotti on drums.
