In the seductive and swinging tradition of Peggy Lee, Billie Holiday, and Ella Fitzgerald . . .
GREAT SONGS FROM THE GOLDEN AGE OF SWING!
Kathryn Anderson charms her audiences with her delightful performances of swinging songs from the Great American Songbook in the “classic jazz” style of the 1940’s and before. A retro-style jazz singer in the tradition of Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, and Peggy Lee, Kathryn creates a sophisticated and upbeat mood with favorite songs from the golden age of Swing.
Her jazz trio — piano or guitar, upright bass, and drums — adds class to any gathering, from intimate celebrations to big wedding and gala receptions.
Kathryn also has many French “chansons” in her repertoire, evoking the ambiance of Edith Piaf’s Parisian cafes. She can tailor her set list to suit your specific occasion and venue, whether for background ambiance, cocktail parties, or dancing.
You will hear well-loved tunes by Cole Porter, Duke Ellington, Irving Berlin, the Gershwins, Rogers and Hart, and Johnny Mercer — just to name a few. These songs were huge hits during the “golden age of swing” and are undergoing successful revivals by Diana Krall, Norah Jones, and many others. These swinging jazz standards have instant appeal for all generations of listeners.
