Jeannie Tanner

“…Her singing is as lyrical as her trumpet playing, but more subtle and delicately nuanced. The silvery quality of her vocal tone, the pliancy of her rhythms and the originality of her compositions attest to her depth as a jazz musician…” Howard Reich, CHICAGO TRIBUNE

Jeannie Tanner is an award winning composer, vocalist and trumpeter who performs and records with her band, the Jeannie Tanner Quartet. This multi-talented instrumentalist is among the few successful female trumpet players and jazz musicians in the world.
