The Satin Doll Trio Intimate Jazz Vocals 2537 Holman Avenue Silver Spring MD 20919 Contact: Fred Ferris Tel: (301)-588-3504, (301) 455-9058 cell e-mail: web site: For Immediate Release Ė June 1, 2001 The “Supper Club" Jazz Sound Thrives In Washington D.C. The Satin Doll Trio, a popular jazz ensemble at many D.C. area fine dining restaurants and night clubs, announces the release of their latest CD titled “Iím Glad There Is You (Romantic Jazz Classics)" on the SD Music label. The Satin Doll Trio performs in the intimate and romantic “after hours" jazz style made popular in supper clubs, nightclubs, and on recordings during the early 1950ís. This minimalist style uses only a jazz guitar and acoustic bass as the vocalists accompaniment providing the listener with a satisfying warmth and intimacy not experienced in other musical styles. The Satin Doll Trioís sound is reminiscent of other great guitar-bass-voice trios from the period as heard on recordings by artists such as; Julie London on “Julie is Her Name", Sarah Vaughan on “After Hours", and Ella Fitzgerald on “Take Love Easy". Singing when accompanied by only two instruments requires a vocalist with special skills. One who can project deep feeling and exercise tasteful restraint. It requires the art of nuance. Satin Doll Trio vocalist Patrice Ferris boasts a silky voice and sings in a sultry style that mirrors these great singers while adding her own unique impression to each song. The Satin Doll Trio can be seen appearing on BET on Jazz: The Jazz Channel television programs “Jazz Central", “Jazz Scene", and “Impressions". The trio makes regular appearances at the John F. Kennedy Center, the Corcoran Galleryís Hammer Auditorium, and other prestigious venues in the D.C. area and Eastern U.S. They make weekly appearances at some of the D.C. areaís most elegant restaurants and lounges.
