Angela Bingham is a true jazz musician who happens to be a vocalist. Her singing is characterized by the qualities of honest expression, solid swinging and an emphasis on the blues. With a clear, steady tone and a penchant for improvisation, she communicates a song's lyric as if she were speaking to you directly, over cocktails or supper.
