My new CD, “Blue-Eyed Painted Lady,” is done! You can buy it on my website here. It will be released nationally by OA2 Records on March 18, 2014. Blue-Eyed Painted Lady features my group Stringtet. It’s a new sound for my original compositions, and I’m excited to share it. Join my email list to hear about our CD release party.

I’m currently performing every Friday night with my trombonist husband Clif Swiggett at Sullivan’s Steakhouse in Seattle. Trombone is a signature instrument of the classic big band, and despite it’s small size, our duo gets a surprisingly big, warm sound! So we’ve decided to call ourselves the “Micro Big Band.” Clif doubles on bongos and egg. I’m singing several songs as well as playing a lovely grand piano. We are enjoying sharing tunes by jazz masters such as Duke Ellington, Clifford Brown, Cole Porter, Jerome Kern, Wes Montgomery, Horace Silver, Jobim, Thelonius Monk, and much more. Sullivan’s has great food and a full bar. 621 Union Street, Seattle, 6:30 – 10:30 PM, no cover. Would love to see you there!
