Angela Hagenbach Angela Hagenbach

”Undoubtedly Angela Hagenbach is one of America's best fresh voices in music and is one of those rare Jazz vocalists who finds more in a song than the composer penned. She inhabits a song and breathes new life into her carefully selected material.” writes Mark Bacon Producer/Host, Jazz After Dark and Pan American Rhythms, KRVS 88.7 FM, Lafayette & Lake Charles, LA.

A Kansas City business women, owner of AH Entertainment, Inc. and Eden's Gate's Music, Hagenbach launched Amazon Records® to release her 1994 debut recording Come Fly With Me. She has since produced and released multiple recordings. Her albums garnered critical praise from JazzTimes, Cadence and National Public Radio. Jazz historian Scott Yanow listed Hagenbach as one of The 521 Great Jazz Singers in his 2008 publication, The Great Jazz Singer's ~The Ultimate Guide.

Johnny Mandel said it best of her most recent recording debut for the West Coast based, Resonance Records, The Way They Make Me Feel, “Having my songs sung along with Henry Mancini and Michel Legrand is wonderful, but the greatest treat of all is to hear what the beautiful and gifted singer Angela Hagenbach does with them. She sings with perfect taste and sounds like no one else.”

She's toured Switzerland with Clark Terry and worked and recorded with Jimmy Heath, Russell Malone, Frank Foster's Big Band, Tamir Hendelman and others. She has graced the stages of numerous festivals, concert halls and performance venues around the world and was twice chosen by the State Department to represent the United States as a Cultural Jazz Ambassador during the Clinton Administration. Both world tours kicked off at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts and progressed through seventeen countries.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
