WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Award-winning jazz singer Marilyn Maye has been named an Official Jazz Legend by the American Jazz Museum and has been onstage with many of the greatest jazz performers, including Count Basie, Charlie "Bird" Parker, and Big Joe Turner. She has been dubbed "Super Singer" by Johnny Carson and "the greatest white female singer in the world" by Ella Fitzgerald. Two years ago, after a 16-year hiatus, Marilyn was 're-discovered' when she appeared as a special guest of The Mabel Mercer Society at Rose Hall at Lincoln Center, and has been performing non-stop ever since, performing to sold-out crowds at renowned venues such as The Los Angeles Ford Amphitheater, The Prince Theater in Philadelphia, the Royal Room Cabaret at the Colony Hotel in Palm Beach and The Prince Theater in Philadelphia. "Marilyn Maye has everything. She can belt, and she can sing ballads with the kind of warmth that makes your heart smile. She has a theatrical flair that captivates and enthralls, and jazz-spiced chops that can reach notes most singers a third her age can't even hit in their dreams. She's the real deal, the surviving artist of the American popular singer." (Rex Reed, New York Observer)
