Bio

 

Lavay Smith is internationally recognized as The Queen Of Classic Jazz & Blues in the authentic style of the 1940's and 1950's. Lavay's last album received a prestigious 4 & 1/2 Star review in Downbeat magazine. For quotes and reviews from critics like Bob Blumenthal, Don Heckman, Phil Elwood and Frank-John Hadley.

“Lavay is wonderful! She and her band are a breath of fresh air. It is so unlikely and so exciting that a band would appear on the scene today that plays classic jazz and blues so well and so convincingly.”

                ---Johnny Otis

 

“The San Francisco-based Lavay Smith & Her Red Hot Skillet Lickers are a notable exception to the retro-swing norm. The saucy vocalist and her eight-piece crew actually know the difference between jump music and bland R&B in corny suits. They have been a working unit since 1989 and sound as tight as the legendary musicians they choose to emulate.”

 

                 ---Bob Blumenthal, Boston Globe

 

 “A lush vocal style recalling both Bessie Smith and Dinah Washington.”

 

                 ----Don Heckman, Los Angeles Times

 

 “Splendid vocals and exemplary material.”

 

                 ---Frank-John Hadley, Downbeat
