Sheila Jordan is one of the finest jazz singers since Billie Holiday. Her voice, like Billie’s, resembles a saxophone improvising on a melody with exquisite tonal shadings, and communicates emotion so directly it can be heart-wrenching. Initially inspired by saxophonist Charlie Parker, Jordan began singing in Greenwich Village clubs with musicians like Charles Mingus and Herbie Nichols. Since then she’s gone on to work with greats like George Russell, Steve Kuhn, Arild Andersen, and Tom Harrell. Among her acclaimed recordings, Portrait of Sheila (Blue Note) is considered one of the best jazz vocal albums of all time. Jordan performs with long time collaborator bassist Cameron Brown who has worked with Don Cherry, Art Blakey, and Joe Lovano among others.
