Event description

Description

Rebecca started her professional career with the Boston based vocal jazz group The Ritz, performing at the 1987 Montreal Jazz Festival as well as jazz clubs throughout the country, and recorded a CD entitled The Ritz for Denon Columbia. Rebecca moved to Portland Oregon in 1990 and started the vocal jazz group Euphoria, performing throughout the Northwest for over a decade, most notably opening for Mel Torme’ in 1993 at the Hult Center in Eugene Oregon. In 2013 she embarked on a solo career and quickly became a favorite vocalist with jazz musicians. Rebecca’s style is often compared to Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughn, and Doris Day. She scats with the ease and swiftness reminiscent of Anita O’Day and Mel Torme’, and her tone and sense of style is matched by her respect for the lyrics and dignified delivery. Rebecca is also a co-founder and director of the annual Aurora Colony Vineyards Jazz Festival, and has helped develop jazz venues in the Willamette Valley. Her recording credits include: The Ritz, Denon Columbia 1987, My Father’s Business, Hardiman Music, 2009, I’ll Remember April, Hardiman Music 2013, Easy Living, Hardiman Music 2015.

Sacramento Jazz Cooperative welcomes Rebecca Hardiman with the Jim Martinez Trio.

“I first heard Rebecca Hardiman in September 2014. She was accompanied by pianist, Tommy James, Musical Director of the Duke Ellington Orchestra. Lovers of Jazz vocalists in particular will no doubt recognize her clarity, tone and sense of style which is matched by her respect for the lyrics and dignified delivery. Scatting with the ease and swiftness reminiscent of Ella, Anita and Mel Torme is enough to make you join the growing number of instant fans who already recognize that she is a welcome asset to the world of Jazz.” -Marcia K. Hocker, PDX Jazz Festival Board MemberEducation Coordinator for the Incredible Journey of Jazz

A measuring stick for singers (in my opinion at least) is their ability to sound like it’s all so easy when we know it’s anything but ! Rebecca Hardiman is such a singer, and you’re going to love her new album.” - George Fendel, KMHD Radio, JazzSociety of Oregon CD Reviewer
