Featured Artists Concert Series

ELLEN ROBINSON: On and Off the Record

Join vocalist Ellen Robinson and her outstanding duo as she performs songs from her latest CD “Don’t Wait Too Long” given 3 ½ stars by DOWNBEAT. She will also present new tunes yet to be recorded.

“She has a wonderful clear voice and a jazz feeling all the way.” ~ Marian McPartland


Exploring a program laden with unexpected treasures, Ellen’s repertoire includes a wide range of first-rate jazz standards, modern pop, folk tunes, blues and original songs. She delivers loads of presence and yet sings with a deceptively unadorned style, eschewing vocal acrobatics and scat solos in favor of close attention to sinuous melodies and emotionally insightful phrasing. It’s the work of an artist with a clear, heartfelt vision, exquisite taste, and lovely voice that lingers in your ear long after the music has finished.

“Ellen Robinson's alto pipes glow like a lightning bug on a warm summer night.”   ~ Lee Hildebrand

"Her thoughtful voicings keep you paying attention to the words, with that rare ability to make you think she’s right there talking to you."~ Jazzweekly

This concert is an opportunity to hear Ellen in an intimate musical setting where she will be singing with a duo consisting of two of the Bay Area’s most gifted instrumentalists:

Pianist Murray Low is fluent in all forms of jazz and has had a multi-faceted career. He was nominated for 2008 Pianist of the Year by the Latin Jazz Corner and has performed with such performers as Clark Terry, George Duke, Kitty Margolis and Ann Estrada.

Bassist John Schifflett has done countless studio sessions ranging from radio and TV jingles to jazz and country and pop recordings. His performing and touring include such well know personalities as Mel Torme, Boz Scaggs, Kurt Elling and Madeline Peyroux.

“Robinson is obviously comfortable with who she is and where she intends to go as an artist. She marches to her own beat and places her own indelible stamp on some classic tunes.”   ~ Brent Black, Critical Jazz

 “A jazz singer that delivers it pure...this is a real treat for the jazz vocal fan looking for a pro that can hold the core all by herself.”  ~ Midwest Records
