Looking for a good big band vocalist?
I would strongly, highly and unequivocally recommend Carmen Bradford (more
about Carmen at her site).

Looking forward.

This week's sponsor: Chico Hamilton hits w/ ''It's About Time! EP'' on
Joyous Shout!

''My first recording as a leader was a trio with Howard Roberts on guitar
and George Duvivier on bass- a 10'' LP made for Pacific Jazz in 1955. This
album was virtually the first recording made with the focus on the members
of the rhythm section as lead instruments. Fifty- three years later we've
recorded 'It's About Time!' in the same trio format with Cary DeNigris on
guitar and Paul Ramsey on bass. These two brilliant players are my right
hand and my left hand.''

We are putting the finishing touches on the Savannah Jazz Festival (Held in
late Sept) & I wanted to ask the panel for suggestions about who might, in
your festival experience, be a great singer to front a big band.  The singer
would have to have big band charts.

Thanks in advance for your suggestions.
