and her Sextet will perform on Sunday, Sept 6, at 12:30 pm in the Jazz Cafe at the Tanglewood Jazz Festival in Lenox, Massachusetts.

The Austin-based vocalist made her Northeast debut in June at the Jazz Standard in New York. Edmonson’s first CD, Take to the Sky, includes selections from Cole Porter, Henry Mancini, John Lennon and Carol King. “Take to the Sky” was mastered by industry superstar, Doug Sax (Pink Floyd, Bette Midler, Neil Young).

Edmonson’s original song, “Lucky” (previously released as an MP3) was featured on the nationally broadcast television program, “The United States of Tara,” produced by Steven Spielberg on the Showtime network.

Nate Chinen of the New York Times says Edmonson … “is a promising young jazz singer with a kittenish voice and an amiably relaxed style,” and Michael Corcoran of the Austin-American Statesman, calls her “Austin’s Great Jazz Hope.”

The Jazz Caf is an informal, cabaret-style venue featuring emerging artists. Past Jazz Caf performers have included Esperanza Spaulding, Grace Kelly, Sachal Vasandani, Aaron Parks and Spencer Day, among many others. Admission to the Caf is free with a ticket to the main stage event that follows—A Piano Duet with Kenny Barron and Mulgrew Miller followed by the 2009 Grammy winning Vanguard Jazz Orchestra.
