Blossom Dearie - JazzProfiles 002

Jenny Hammond sings Blossom Dearie @Seven Arts 11 Nov 1.30pm

Jennie Hammond interprets the songs of Blossom Dearie, a remarkable vocalist jazz pianist, and composer from the bebop era who was able to bridge the gap between west side rhythm and east side lyrical content throughout her career.

Jennie Hammond has been singing ever since she can remember. She has studied the vocal greats of all time, Ella Fitzgerald, Shirley Horne, Carmen McRae, Norma Winstone, Carol Kidd and Blossom Dearie to name but a few and was gigging by the age of 14. Jenny went on to study at the Leeds College of Music taking lessons from Tina May and singing with the Ellington Repertory Orchestra.

Her voice has a beautiful naïve quality but with the assurance and maturity of phrasing that has been likened to that of Astrud Gilberto. It was Jenny’s voice that was the inspiration for

Her quartet has Jason Scott on piano, Will Powell guitar Steve Crocker bass and Dom Moore drums.
