MJJO Guest Vocalist, Tae Phoenix

“I’ve often cringed when I heard myself described as a jazz singer. I’ve always thought of myself as a jazz vocalist.” ~ Cassandra Wilson

imageAfter a gig at Winterfest 2013 a young lady walked up to the band and said, I’d love to sing with this band. We have two female vocalists and I kinda though, yeah right. To be quite frank, we hear that a lot. But I went ahead and asked her for her creds, and she shot us some vids. Oh… my… gawd.

So the gig last night came at a time that both our regular female vocalists were outta town on business. Yes, the Microsoft Jumpin’ Jive Orchestra is a hobby band where all the performers have day jobs. So we called upon Tae Phoenix to deliver the goods, and she did that, and in spades!

This video doesn’t do her justice. The camera is too close to the drums, and the band isn’t miked right for a recording. Truth be known, I rarely provide videos of singers because the video process *always* distorts the sound. But this was something special. Enjoy.

Tell me that didn’t make your day. :0)
