Album Notes
"Hodge has a striking voice. Her range
is impressive...."
- Kyle O'Brien, Jazz Society of Oregon

"Her 8ve leaps and pitch-perfect landings
evoke Portland great Nancy King..."
The Oregonian, Lynn Darroch

Hodge's latest CD (Oct. 08 release, "Indigo") includes Cheryl with jazz guitar god, John Stowell; Juno winning trumpet/flugel player Brad Turner, and sax great Tom Colclough. This new CD is a real barnburner; focussing on fusion (not unlike Roy Hargrove's groove.) The songs Indigo, Far and Guide to Recovery are good examples of the NEW Hodge sound. Her original grooves are infectious; but this newest sound dwarfs the others!

With over 20 years of playing jazz & blues with the finest musicians in North America, & Canada, Cheryl Hodge has made her mark as a performer, vocalist, adjudicator, clinician & author. Hodge is a gifted pianist and isn't afraid to visit the outer stretches of "scatting" territory. Her first love, however remains (and most likely forever will be...) composing.

Hodge has co-written & performed alongside: John Stowell (whom she recently co-wrote an album of originals with), Hugh Fraser; and performed with Dee Daniels, & countless others. There are annual tours which include jazz festivals, clinics and club performances. Most recently, Hodge is celebrating the release of a new "best of" compilation of originals; called, "Cheryl Hodge: Original Article", available through, and her website,

Diane and the Reviewer Team

Fantastic jazz perfomance with refreshing vocals
With her most recent album release “Indigo,” talented vocalist/composer Cheryl Hodge shines on this fantastic jazz performance. Hodge’s gift of music is thoroughly enjoyed with her vocals that are polished and sophisticated. Take note of the strong and solid range her voice carries especially on the title track “Indigo.” Feel the expression and emotion pouring out as she delivers an amazing collection of songs. Listeners will notice the outstanding support from band members as they blend balance and texture while adding a cool swing feel with soft brushes on drums, sweet guitar riffs, or electric piano. Let the melodic sax riffs carry you away on “Guide to Recovery.” If you are looking to hear jazz with refreshing vocals, then you will definitely want to add Cheryl Hodge‘s “Indigo” to your collection.

Cheryl is like a fine wine, smooth and silky.
Really like the instrumentals as well.
