Rebecca Kilgore Rebecca Kilgore is one of America's leading song stylists intent on preserving the vocal jazz of the 30s and 40s, an era which she feels remains unsurpassed in its high quality songwriting and heartfelt lyrics. She regularly performs worldwide at jazz festivals, jazz parties, and on jazz cruises. She is a frequent guest on National Public Radio's “Fresh Air" with terry Gross, has appeared on “A Prairie Home Companion," and with Michael Feinstein at Carnegie Hall.

Kilgore has performed around the country at venues like The Jazz Bakery in Culver City, CA; The Plush Room in San Francisco, CA, The Concorde Club in Southampton, UK; Murphy's Place in Toledo, OH; and The Firefly Club in Ann Arbor, MI. In 2010 she was honored to have been inducted to the Oregon Music Hall of Fame and to the Jazz Society of Oregon's Hall Of Fame, and to have been invited to perform at New York's Mabel Mercer Cabaret Convention for two consecutive years at Town Hall and Lincoln Center. She hosted “The Singer's Voice," her own radio show for KMDH 89.1FM, Oregon Public Broadcasting.

Her many recordings include the recently released Live at Feinstein's at Loews Regency, which celebrates the musical collaboration of Billie Holliday and Lester Young. In The New York Times, Stephen Holden called the show “a sexy, lighthearted dance" and Ms. Kilgore “a wonderfully fluent jazz stylist with clear enunciation who exudes a serene mastery of phrasing." She also recently collaborated with jazz guitarist-vocalist, John Pizzarelli
