Carrie Jackson

Ms. Carrie Jackson & Her Jazzin' All Star Ensemble swings and performs the music of “Duke” Ellington, Count Basie, Lionel Hampton, Louis “Satchmo” Armstrong, Miles, Coltrane, Diz and the Great American Song Book.

Carrie attributes her vocal style of singing to her mentors, the Great Ladies of Jazz, Sarah Vaughan, Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, and Dinah Washington, and Carmen Mc Rae, but, Carrie truly has a Jazzin' style that is uniquely her own. She has a sound that is honey laden, soulful , sultry, and sings a pop, and blues tune that has a poignant mellow sound; her timing is right on and the subtle twists and turns in her phrasing make her that comparatively rarity, a real jazz singer with a great Sound!!. Carrie is dedicated to preserving this unique jazz music culture and encourages an awareness of it's history through music appreciation and understanding.
