Singer Hilary Kole Interviewed at All About Jazz

When Hilary Kole sings, she can become one of the ideal subjects for the “what is jazz singing" discussion that has gone on for decades. She sings clear and cleanly, with a sure tone and an attractive sound. She's done cabaret and her voice is perfectly suited for it. But she sings with small jazz groups and has more than a feel for that as well. And she's stood before big bands and presented jazz sure and enchanting.

But that jazz thing. Frank Sinatra was. No he wasn't. Tony Bennett is. No he's not. This guy. That gal. It can get to the equivalent of barroom talk about sports personalities. So Kole, who has been developing a jazz singer's pedigree since her early days studying classical piano and composing classical music, isn't in bad company.

Veteran All About Jazz Contributor R.J. DeLuke spoke with Kole about recording You Are There (Justin Time Records, 2010)—her intimate album of duets with a veritable who's who of living piano legends—working with the inimitable John Pizzarelli on her 2009 debut, Haunted Heart (Justin Time Records), and even more ambitious plans for her next album.
