Jenny Davis – Inside You
| Jenny Davis
2009 – Little Footnote Production
Highly respected by critics and a favorite of audiences, Jenny Davis is an authentic jazz vocalist whose traditional approach to the standards demonstrates her deep-rooted commitment to the art of jazz and swing. A passionate steward of straight-ahead jazz, Davis combines clear, lush vocals and sophisticated phrasing to bring the listener inside her soulful journey. Whether improvising over Charlie Parker, or delivering the composer’s heart of a haunting ballad, her commitment to the art form is never more evident than in her third, and newest CD release of INSIDE YOU.
The release of INSIDE YOU includes some compelling originals and little known tracks drawn from some of the best jazz composers. “The intimacy of guitar and bass allowed me the freedom to get fully inside the honesty of the music” Jenny explains. “It just felt like a natural evolution, after 15 years of working together, for (guitarist) Chuck Easton and I to finally record these tunes.” They added veteran bass Ted Enderle and San Francisco tenor sax, Louis Aissen, which earned them a full standing ovation at their CD release performance in January 2010. “The instrumental combination with these specific tunes, just created an honesty that I was searching for and the audience has been responding to it”, Jenny added. Internationally renowned composer, RODGERS GRANT, contributed with his sultry ballad, “MORNING GLORY,” while Davis displays her commitment to jazz with her deeply personal composition and title track; “INSIDE YOU.”
A Seattle native, Jenny is a Cornish college of the Arts graduate and recipient of the Maggie Hawthorne scholarship. She actively performs throughout the Pacific Northwest at clubs, festivals and jazz venues with such jazz staples as Randy Halberstadt, Chuck Easton, Chuck Deardorf, Chris Symer, John Hansen, Ted Enderle and San Francisco tenor sax player, Louis Aissen. “
