Jazz vocalist Pamela Rose, backed by her four-piece band, artfully delivers a cultural retrospective, adding historical elements to the performance. Rose's band includes: Tammy Hall (piano), Ruth Davies (bass), Kristen Strom (saxophone) and Kent Bryson (drums).
Originally from Southern California, Rose began her music career at a young age. Captivated by classic blues singers like Bessie Smith and Ida Cox, Rose put herself through U.C. Berkeley by belting out the blues as a singing waitress. After graduation, Rose toured with Hammond B-3 organist Merl Saunders followed by a run with rock guitarist Chris Cobb. Working with pianist Nate Ginsberg, Rose turned her songwriting efforts toward a Swing-era sound and quickly gained recognition with her debut album On the Jazzy Side of Blue," which was nominated for two BAMMIE Awards. Her follow-up album, Every Time I'm With You," gained lavish critical praise and led to several European tours. Her third album You Could Have it All," released in 2001, attracted national attention and was profiled on NPR's All Things Considered." In 2006, Rose released Just for a Thrill," an album that balanced simmering romance with bluesy sass. Rose's current project Wild Women of Song," released in 2009, has received accolades from critics worldwide.
