Words are not just words
they are kisses
on the lips of silence
that speak of your essence

Jeri Brown

"Jeri Brown has earned a reputation as one of jazz' most outstanding “artistic" vocalists including the distinction from the French publication Jazz Hot of being one of top 50 jazz vocalists of all time. Brown's illustrious international performance and recording career over a 20 year span has consistently conveyed her artistic signature. In 12 spectacular recordings for Justin Time Records, and Jongleur Records she is committed to the legacy of vocal jazz. Ms. Brown's performances have filled the historical spectrum of classic American songbook themes, original jazz compositions, and contemporary world themes with intense vocal improvisations, and include collaborations with diverse, legendary jazz artists."
(from her website Jeri Brown)

I was very, very fortunate to see her perform in Montreal's jazz bar "Upstairs" a week ago. She touched my heart.  I tought I've heard every version of  "The Look of Love", but no, I've never heard hers and it's one of the most sublime ones.
 Please check out her music, it is divine...

Thank you for visiting
