VALENTINE’S DAY SPECIAL: HALF-PRICE BOTTLES OF WINE & BEER!
Nancy’s live performances are legendary. In a market place where wispy voices and shallow emotions abound, Ms. Kelly is a breath of fresh air…or should we say, smoky air; she takes us back to the time when jazz -and that includes vocal jazz -was an authentic expression of real emotion. During her thirty-plus year career she has honed her trademark swing/bop take no prisoners back-to-the-roots swinging style in front of audiences across the U.S. and abroad; from Singapore to Switzerland, France, and Turkey to her three tours of Japan. Nancy appears regularly in New York City including performances at The Blue Note, Birdland, The Rainbow Room and Dizzy’s Jazz club, Lincoln Center. She works frequently in Los Angeles and Miami, as well as countless jazz clubs, festivals, and symphony orchestra engagements across the country.
Nancy was twice named Best Female Jazz Vocalist in the Down Beat Reader’s Poll. She has recorded four critically acclaimed records. Her first record Live Jazz reached #11 on the Billboard charts. All of Miss Kelly’s accomplishments and accolades are testament to the fact that a great jazz voice doesn’t happen overnight. More than any other instrument, the voice gains its resonance and soulfulness from the life experiences of the body that surrounds it. To paraphrase Bird, “if you haven’t lived it isn’t going to come out of your horn.” Nancy Kelly has lived it. She is, in every respect, the real deal.
