Timeless Records Jazz Vocal Recording Artist Diana PEREZ Debut at Iridium November 30.
This charismatic and engaging vocalist, recently returned from performances in the UK, makes her first appearance at Iridium Jazz Club, where many jazz giants have graced the stage.
Perez was born in Harlem in New York City. Though photography was her first love, jazz is her lasting love. She moved to Europe in the early 90's and focused on performing, gaining a weekly residency at Amsterdam's Bemus. Returning to her native NYC in 2000 Perez is now making her mark on the City with a growing reputation for her commitment to the art of storytelling through jazz. Perez will present material from her recent CD Sunday Sketches and new songs from forthcoming session It's Happenin', due for release in 2007.
In an era with an abundance of female vocalists who keep the band in the background, trading more on image than voice, Diana Perez is a refreshing change, keeping her voice honest and involving the band as an integral part of the music"--Elliott Simon (All About Jazz).
