NEW YORK (December 2010) Fresh from sold-out performances in London, Los Angeles (The Grammy Museum), San Francisco & Oakland (Yoshis) and Santa Cruz (Kuumbwa), Bay Area jazz vocalist Pamela Rose will bring her hit multi-media jazz and blues concert Wild Women of Song: Great Gal Composers of the Jazz Era" to Feinsteins on Friday, January 7, 2011 at 8:30 p.m. This will be a special winter concert sure to delight all ages!
Called a swinging honors course in womankind by San Francisco magazine, Wild Women of Song is a captivating showpiece celebrating the lives, times and music of the often-invisible women songwriters of the Tin Pan Alley era.
Projecting carefully collected archival photos, while telling the stories of these women, Rose brings vast musical experience to an emotionally dynamic program that showcases many well-known songs from the Great American Songbook including, Wild Women (Dont Get the Blues) (Ida Cox), Im in the Mood for Love (Dorothy Fields), Cant We Be Friends? (Kay Swift) and What a Diffrence a Day Made (Maria Grever). Jazz vocalist Rose backed by her 4-piece band artfully delivers a cultural retrospective, adding historical elements to the performance. Roses band includes: Tammy Hall (piano), Ruth Davies (bass), Kristen Strom (saxophone) and Kent Bryson (drums).
Originally from Southern California, Rose began her music career at a young age. Captivated by classic blues singers like Bessie Smith and Ida Cox, Rose put herself through U.C. Berkeley by belting out the blues as a singing waitress. After graduation, Rose toured with Hammond B-3 organist Merl Saunders followed by a run with rock guitarist Chris Cobb. Working with pianist Nate Ginsberg, Rose turned her songwriting efforts toward a Swing-era sound and quickly gained recognition with her debut album On the Jazzy Side of Blue, which was nominated for two BAMMIE Awards. Her follow-up album, Every Time Im With You, gained lavish critical praise and led to several European tours. Her third album You Could Have it All, released in 2001, attracted national attention and was profiled on NPRs All Things Considered. In 2006, Rose released Just for a Thrill, an album that balanced simmering romance with bluesy sass. Roses current project Wild Women of Song, released in 2009, has received accolades from critics worldwide.
