Audrey Silver Quartet at Miles Cafe

“Silver’s….voice is like pure sterling. Her phrasing is exquisite, her clarity and enunciation on par with the great Jo Stafford and her breath control – a talent so often, and so wrongfully, overlooked – rivals Sinatra’s.”
Christopher Loudon, JazzTimes.com 

“She has the talent to be included among today’s best female jazz singers”
Wilbert Sostre, AllAboutJazz.com

The highlight was Silver’s captivating interpretation of “The Meaning of the Blues.”

On her stunning sophomore recording (Dream Awhile), New York native and award-winning vocalist Audrey Silver presented a collection of beloved standards to critical acclaim.  As Geannine Reid wrote in JazzTimes, “Her tone is round, warn and wrapped with a low timber, it sends chills up your spine…Not since Karen Carpenter have I heard such a strong alto voice that is so pure and so convincing.”

For her appearance at The Miles Cafe, Audrey will be performing songs from her first two recordings (Here in My Arms and Dream Awhile), some of her own compositions, and works by Bill Evans and Rodgers & Hammerstein. Her band includes pianist Chantale Gagne a “bright young talent..” who plays with “wisdom, warmth and passion…” (All About Jazz). In demand bassist, Joe Fitzgerald has performed and toured with an endless list of jazz luminaries including Bruce Barth, Ken Peplowski, Maxine Sullivan and Gene Bertoncini. Tom Beckham “has a refreshing approach to the vibraphone.  He plays it with a gentle ear for harmony and development, with ideas that are wrapped in crystalline notes.” (All About Jazz)
