DREAMS & SHADOWS

The follow-up to Judy Wexler's critically acclaimed debut Easy on the Heart confirms her status as one of the finest rising bop-influenced jazz vocalists on today's music scene. Dreams & Shadows features an eclectic repertoire, including “Spooky" and “Almost Blue," with inventive arrangements by piano greats Alan Pasqua and Jeff Colella. The sideman list includes saxman Bob Sheppard, bassist Darek Oles, and drummer Joe LaBarbera.

Wexler, admired for her warm voice and nuanced approach to melody and lyrics, is a natural storyteller. She is also “one of the most focused, unpretentious, no-nonsense, bop-oriented jazz singers around," according to Harvey Siders in JazzTimes, with “a big, appealing voice and a healthy sense of swing," wrote Alex Henderson in All Music Guide. Easy On The Heart, made radio waves and introduced her to a wide jazz audience; now Dreams & Shadows, confirms her ability to find great songs and effortlessly bring them to life.



“I love the freedom of jazz and I love being able to connect with the audience and express myself through the lyrics," Wexler beams. “There is so much great material to explore and share. And living in southern California, I get to play with some of the finest jazz musicians in the world. It's a privilege that I never forget when I get up to sing."
