Sandy Dennison Jazzed!
I know, I know....a bio is important, and it's here, but what's happening NOW is what's happening!!!! I am so happy and blessed to be able to live my dream. Who'd have thought it?! If I can do it, you can do it. Let me tell you that I'm heard regularly on KMHD FM radio and performing throughout the Pacific Northwest with musicians that I only dreamed about. Here are some reviews for you, so I not only hope you like my CD, but that you'll hire my band to perform for you sometime. 'Sandy Dennison swings!!' Steve Christofferson 'A Stellar Act! Dennison is warm, passionate and fun!' Lake Oswego Review 'Sandy Dennison, is smooth, elegant and savvy!' jazzconnect.com 'Sandy Dennison bursts with good cheer. Her enthusiasm is one of her best assets and her snappy delivery works well in any venue.' Donna Kimura, JazzReview.com 'Dennison consistently impresses audiences with her signature combination of a trailing vibrato that tugs at memories of Ella Fitzgerald and a lanquid sense of phrasing that will please fans of Lee Wiley, Barbara Lea and the like. Backed by the stellar complement of Vincent Frates and Andre St. James, Dennison has a fragile Carmen McRae sensuality that scandalizes the gaga innocence of Eisenhower-era pop jazz - and you'll thank her for it.' Tim Duroche, Willamette Week Here's the bio! Growing up, on the East Coast, immersed in music.....country to Bach, Sandy listened to recordings by Ella Fitzgerald, Lena Horn and Blossom Dearie; she was hooked. In her teens, Sandy was crazy for Doris Day and Shirley Bassey, then Cleo Lane and in her twenties was singing with a band of her own. Sandy studied with some of the best teachers in the Delaware Valley, including voice and stage presence under the watchful eye of Bucky Harris, and voice with Lenny Payton, former music coordinator on several New York based television shows. Sandy's appearing at venues throughout the Pacific Northwest.
