Ladies of Jazz

About this event

Featuring an exciting lineup of talent, Rudy’s Jazz Room’s "Ladies of Jazz" showcase presents three of Nashville's favorite female vocalists collaborating together, displaying a variety of original and distinct vocal talents and backed by some of the most astute and accredited musicians in Nashville’s jazz community with Jimmy Sullivan on bass, Melvin Macias on piano, and Bryan Brock on drums.

Wendy BurnsWendy Burns of Nashville, TN, is a flute and ukulele playing jazz vocalist who since the age of 9, has studied and performed songs from the 1940’s Jazz Big Band era. Burns has been described as having a unique voice that fits the era. She has also performed on the Grand Ole Opry and has sessioned and performed with many of the Nashville Classic Country greats. In her experience, she has paired with greats such as Eric Heatherly and Black Sabbath. With a deep passion for Jazz Standards, and as a hopeless romantic, jazz has become her noted forte. Her set list includes the songs of the “Great American Songbook."

Her Influences are Judy Garland, Doris Day, Frank Sinatra, Tommy Dorsey, The Andrew Sisters, Billie Holiday, and Helen Forrest, to name a few. You will be enthralled by Wendy's renditions of these timeless ditties. You will also hear some of her original tunes in vaudeville fashion featuring "Grover" her ukulele.

"When singing the classics, I’ve always tried to sing the melodies as close to the original version as possible. I feel you can get closest to the composer's feelings by doing that, it's an art form of beauty. To think that someone in a time long ago did their best to put their feelings into words and melody to portray whatever they were feeling in that very moment for a heartfelt reason in a very particular way just means so much to me. I'm feel connected in doing that or maybe I'm just a hopeless romantic and madly in love with the idea of living back in that time. Love and Rumba" -Wendy Burns

Crystal MillerCrystal Miller will move you with the music that moves her. That's why, when you hear Crystal, you hear the combination of ALL of her musical experiences. When asked which genre of music she prefers, she'll tell you, "That's like asking a woman to choose one favorite pair of shoes--it's virtually impossible!!--different genres speak to me for different reasons"--like the memories of the R&B, Pop and Rock of her youth, to the stories and harmonies of Country and Bluegrass, to the impassioned lyrics and sensual, soul-affirming rhythms of the Latin music that she’s grown to love performing.

Combining those beats and rhythms with jazz sensibilities is Crystal's current passion. An alum of the Nashville Jazz Workshop, Crystal has also spent years honing her craft, singing at various venues and with various local bands, such as the EZ Jazz Quartet, Diane King & Littlestone, Cliff Richmond, the Marcela Pinilla Pinilla Band and more recently, the Craig & MacGregor Band (Berkeley, CA). Music lovers will surely enjoy their favorites and be introduced to new faves, when Crystal Miller performs.

Laura MayoThe vocal presence of Laura Mayo represents the divine potential of jazz to move the human spirit. Echoing the tradition of Ella Fitzgerald, Anita O'Day and Keely Smith - she is a conduit to the foundation of the genre, while effortlessly expanding the boundaries of its form.

Born in Memphis, Laura has spent the better of a decade as the vocal ace of Nashville's premier recording studios. Her talents have been featured on national tours, performing with acts such as Cory Chisel and Quinn Deveaux.
