Dee Alexander Dee Alexander

Dee Alexander is one of Chicago’s most gifted and respected female vocalist/songwriters. Her talents span every music genre, from Gospel to R&B, from Blues to Neo-Soul. Yet her true heart and soul are experienced in their purest form through her performance of Jazz music. From a soft, sultry traditional ballad, to a contemporary Jazz-Funk groove; from a high flying swing, to a scat-filled romp, Dee Alexander delivers each style with a passion and love of music that comes across in each and every note, and with a style and grace that is truly her own. Some of her recent career highlights include the following:

2009 Chicago Jazz Festival--Dee Alexander and the Siren’s Orchestra; 2009 Tribute to Abraham Lincoln--Proclamation of Hope with Ramsey Lewis--Ravinia; 2008 Hope in Action--Homage to Nelson Mandela with Orbert Davis and Chicago Jazz Philharmonic--Millennium Park; 2007 Sirens of Song--Tribute to Nina Simone and Dinah Washington--Millennium Park Pritzker Pavilion; 2007 AACM Great Black Music Ensemble Tribute to Fletcher Henderson--Millennium Park Pritzker Pavilion; 2007 Jazz Institute of Chicago--Tribute to ”Light“Henry Huff--Columbus Park; 2007 Blue Room--Kansas City, Mo--Dee Alexander Trio with Dennis Winslett; 2006 Sweet Rhythm NYC--Passing Thru with Oliver Lake; 2006 Chicago Jazz Festival with Africa Brass Tribute to Malachi Thompson; 2006 Exquisitely for Ella Tribute - Chicago Jazz Orchestra; 2005 Millennium Park Jazz Series--Orbert Davis’ Chicago Jazz Philharmonic Orchestra; 2005 Mississippi Valley Blues Festival--Douglas Ewart’s Inventions; 2005 Chicago Jazz Festival - Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians (AACM) Great Black Music Ensemble.

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.
