Contemporary/Smooth Jazz and Soft R&B are the styles of music you will hear when attending a Ms. Jaz performance.
Be it a festival or indoor venue, you will feel as though you are sitting front row at a national concert.
Smokey and smooth are the words used to describe her vocals. Named among the "Top Ten Jazz Albums" in British Columbia in 2003, and named by Cincinnati's Citybeat Magazine as one of the "Top Local Artists to Produce a CD on A National Level" in 2002 and 2006, Ms. Jaz raised to popularity with her 2002 CD release "Chances".
A Cincinnati based vocalist and writer; she has performed in various cities across the nation. She has shared the stage with such artists as jazz great Gumbi Ortiz, percussionist for guitar great Al Di Meola.
Many have compared her smooth vocals to the great Billie Holliday, Sarah Vaughan, Phyllis Hyman and Anita Baker. Ms. Jaz performed background vocals live in concert for Phil Perry, Windham Hill's hot vocalist at Cincinnati's Aronoff Center and opened for Regina Belle at the 1999 Applause Magazine Image Maker Awards Gala, Bobby Blue Bland, Marion Meadows and Pieces Of A Dream. 2004 was her debut with the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra (CSO) as the featured artist on a Jazz Cruise sponsored by the CSO.
She has been featured regionally with Cincinnati's own "JAMSET" a group comprised of session and touring musicians who have played and opened for such acts as Roy Ayers, Jean Carne, Ronnie Laws, Pieces of a Dream, Phil Perry, Regina Belle, and most recently Bobby Blue bland.
In addition to Jazz, she performs Adult Contemporary, Blues, and Motown.
Jaz is no stranger to live theatre. As a member of Cincinnati's Amethyst Ensemble, she received leading roles in numerous live theatre productions.
Jaz's first single was released on the "Essence of Now" Record Label December 15, 2001. Her first released CD, "Chances" was recorded on the D'Mar Entertainment Record Label. Her new CD "Me Too - Ms. Jaz Live" is scheduled for release July 2006.
