Sophistication and style best describe vocalist and bandleader Carolyn Lee Jones. Have You Met Miss Jones…. and her band …The Jazz Life! With extensive experience, performing in the jazz-cabaret rooms of New York City to various private and public events in Dallas Ft. Worth, Carolyn Lee Jones and The Jazz Life know just what to do to deliver musical excellence. You can't do a "retake" on your event so we work closely with each client to help find the right musical fit from an intimate Duo all the way up to our swinging Big Band.
Here is what the press has to say about Carolyn - Jazz Times Magazine CD Reviewer Christopher Loudon wrote, “Jones Attacks each song with the vigor of a wildcatter yet maintains a dusky under current that drips with sensuality.” New York City's Cabaret Hotline – Stu Hamstra says, “Carolyn Lee Jones started to sing "Take the A Train ...the show was great…Ms. Jones has great style and great vocals.”
With an extensive repertoire, the songbook includes; familiar jazz standards, retro pop songs with a jazz sensibility, favorite rhythm and blues, beautiful ballads, new material and renditions of other popular music all with that special jazz twist! A side note regarding the song list - to give you a sense of both the contemporary jazz singers and the original recording artist we have indicated some of each as simply a reference. The jazz world is vast and many artists have recorded the listed songs.
Other songs are available by request for your special occasion! Just ask! Need Carolyn to M.C. for you? She loves doing it and has a sample of her voice in the audio section of this profile page.
In addition to her many private events, Carolyn has an extensive public performance jazz schedule. Be sure to look at the calendar for a few of the current date highlights!
Let us know what you need and we will take good care of you! That's a promise!
Great performance, good crowd interaction, nice job of mixing in songs everyone might know with their own songs.
