An elegant singer whose voice is inspired by the golden age of jazz, Kay sings music in the styles of such songbirds as Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, Peggy Lee and Anita O’Day.

Performing classic songs from enduring masters of the art form, including Duke Ellington, the Gershwins, Rodgers and Hart, Harold Arlen, Cole Porter; and songwriters from Europe and Latin America-- Black Olive Jazz brings these two traditions together with an all-star ensemble of San Francisco jazz artists.

Black Olive Jazz plays Standards, Swing, Latin and Blues with a Mediterranean flavor. Classic ambiance for your quiet event, or hot dance music for your party or wedding festivities. Duo, Ensemble, Latin or Big Band. Our CD, Black Magic, has received airplay on the jazz station, KCSM, and sells on CD Baby.
