Stephanie Nakasian is listed in the Biographical Encyclopedia of Jazz as one of the world's leading jazz singers. She first came to international attention in the mid-80s when she sang and toured with the vocal jazz master Jon Hendricks and Company - her “vocal jazz apprenticeship." Since then, she has toured and recorded as a leader and with her partner and internationally acclaimed jazz pianist Hod O'Brien. Together with their daughter Veronica (who also sings and records under the name Veronica Swift) they make their home in Charlottesville,Virginia. Since 1980 Ms. Nakasian has been actively recording. Her debut CD “Comin'Alive" (V.S.O.P.) features legendary saxophonist Phil Woods and received four stars from critic Leonard Feather. “French Cookin'" (V.S.O.P.) spotlights the beautiful combination of Ms. Nakasian's voice with virtuoso French hornist Bobby Routch. Her “Bitter Sweet" CD (JazzMania) was also very well received. Her “Escapade" takes the audience on a fantasy swing voyage and her “Lullaby in Rhythm" is in tribute to Kenton singer June Christy and features tenor saxophonist Harry Allen. In 2006 two CDs were released: “Thrush Hour" (VSOP), a tribute to 20 great jazz singers featuring a 20 page booklet co-authored by Scott Yanow with pictures, bios and educational tips as to how to listen to each singer to hear the nuances of style and phrasing. “I Love You" (Spice of Life) was released in Japan to rave reviews and a full article in “Swing Journal" in which they called Stephanie “the perfect jazz singer."
