Music Sessions @ RoCA with Shirley Crabbe with David Finck, bass
Native New Yorker, Jazz Vocalist, and winner of the highly coveted New York Bistro Award for Outstanding Recording: BRIDGES, Shirley Crabbe sings songs that speak to the heart. With a repertoire of songs replete with lyrics worth listening to and a voice hailed as one that “must surely appeal to all who love good jazz singing, her “almost Ella Fitzgerald–like vibe glows…” says John Ephland of Downbeat Magazine. “Crabbe … wrings the poetic imagery out of songs… [and sends them to a] rarefied realm.” –Raul De Gama, JazzDeGama.com.
Drawing on a wide range of music from the Americas, including classic Jazz, The Great American Songbook, and spirituals, Crabbe’s music is a tribute to the rich history and vibrant sounds of Jazz.
