Barbara Sfraga is an artist who gathers no moss as she rolls through life, constantly evolving. Jazz Times said “She has never met a genre she didn't like or couldn't assimilate.” Described as “consistently inventive” (Billboard) and “jazz singing at its cutting edge best” (LA Times), she’s been on a musical journey that evolved from church organist to rock keyboardist to ‘voicist’. A classically trained vocalist, Barbara jumped ship to sing rock, pop, R&B and jazz. She throws all those influences into the pot to create and sing the music she feels with no boundaries, as evidenced in her recordings, “Oh, What a Thrill” (1999, Naxos Jazz), “Under the Moon” (2003, A440 Music Group) and the most current “Timelessness Frozen in Time” (2006, SyncTimiCity), a collective effort featuring keyboardist/vocalist Mala Waldron, bass artisan Christopher Dean Sullivan, soundrhythium Michael T.A. Thompson and multi-reedist Allen Won.

(Preview) The singer likes to call herself a voicist -- presumably Sfraga's way
to invest her vocals with
an instrumental perspective (a ala saxophonist). But the truth is that she
really doesn't have to do
anything other than allow her inventive singing to speak for itself. Always
eager to bring new life to the
most familiar songs, Sfraga has gotten together with the gifted quartet
Center Search Quest to develop
new material in a style eclectic enough to combine elements of cutting-edge
improvisation with R&B-
tinged rhythms. - Don Heckman Los Angeles Times, Critics Choice
