Jeannie Tanner

“…Her singing is as lyrical as her trumpet playing, but more subtle and delicately nuanced. The silvery quality of her vocal tone, the pliancy of her rhythms and the originality of her compositions attest to her depth as a jazz musician…” Howard Reich, CHICAGO TRIBUNE

”...Her singing is as lyrical as her trumpet playing but more subtle and delicately nuanced. The silvery quality of her vocal tone, the pliancy of her rhythms and the originality of her compositions attest to her depth as a jazz musician...” Howard Reich, CHICAGO TRIBUNE

“In her latest release, Promise Me the Moon, Tanner takes on several different roles: that of composer, instrumentalist and vocalist. Strong melodies and catchy lyrics is what many of today’s composers struggle to create. Tanner makes it sound easy throughout the recording... Throughout the recording there are surprises: The song 'C’est Bon, C’est Bon' is an up-tempo samba that has a nice groove created by bassist Corey Biggerstaff and drummer Darlene DuFay, and is sung by Tanner in French.” Mike Jeffers, CHICAGO JAZZ MAGAZINE

“...In a jazz scene littered with discs by singers singing the same standards with roughly the same arrangements, Jeannie Tanner's TANNER TIME stands out...” Paul Abella, CHICAGO JAZZ MAGAZINE

...”Sultry vocalist, gifted instrumentalist, innovative composer - Jeannie Tanner blends each of these roles together like a tasty recipe simmering in its own signature sauce. J-Pop (Jazz Pop) is Tanner's own signature blend of Jazz, Pop, R&B, Blues and Latin rhythms. This fresh and lively styling permeates Tanner's mesmerizing performances, as she projects the full range of human emotion punctuated with love, loss and feel-good lyrics...” Excerpts from “Tanner's Secret Sauce,” by Patrice Elliott-Mace, Freelance Writer (Chicago)
