A premier woman vocalist
#1
Jackie Ryan has been gracing us with her voice and imagination since the turn of the century...and keeps growing better. Here's an AMG bio/synopsis: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WxICp8GZy4Ub and Discog: http://www.allmusic.com/artist/jackie-ry...iscography << Excellence from minute 1 and she took that last sentence to heart--she subsequently was more adventurous. A lot more good info/opinion here: http://www.amazon.com/Listen-Here-Jackie...ackie+ryan Her Site: http://www.jackieryanmusic.com/index.html

That gorgeous voice: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DUNfiEANEi8 << I think the drummer is a bit heavy-handed
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XRV19ahyBag << a "making-of" vid--nicely done << John Clayton is a top-rank jazz bassist/arranger
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DrVngxMKo_0 << How's this for a stunning, out-of-the-blue encore?
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FtTQ4GcGZcI << Groovin' on Mr. Holloway's signature tune
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hYyQfJ8nag8 << Wonder how many babies got made because of this?

Edited the Thread title (or tried to) to include Lisa Engelken, the most refreshing vocalist in awhile, pricipally because she so re-imagines songs and her approach has an almost horn-like quality. Composer and arranger too. 2 CDs and can't wait for the next. AMG bio (such as it is): http://www.allmusic.com/artist/lisa-enge.../biography << That picture and her take on that warhorse, "Caravan" should hook you...Her Site: http://www.lisaengelken.com/ The Usual Suspect listing included for the user comment--he nails it: http://www.amazon.com/Caravan-Lisa-Engel...a+engelken

Some tunes: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NqtqaqGYjoQ << "Caravan"
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kvj3UhJ1ETo
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qG7cIyPrdqI << Not afraid to try anything << Billy Idol's "White Wedding"
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oUfDVRo5g1A << Just a sliver of this song
