Primary Instrument: Vocalist
Jazz vocalist Ariane Jacobi was born in Cologne. She began piano lessons and tap dancing at the age of fourteen. Ariane developed an early love for jazz on records. “ Since I was little, I loved old school blowers, especially tenormen, like Pres, with his fragile, intensive sound, his rich melodic ideas, and I was bewildered by Ben Webster's meaty tone, his vibrato and the air at the end of the notes” Ariane said. Ariane Jacobi captures melodies with the huskiness of her voice: bouncy and effortless - full of rhythm. Shei is one of those singers who can shape melodies as well as lyrics into a believable story. With “Big City Is For Me” Ariane Jacobi offers an album with tunes from the American Songbook.
