Album Notes
Jennifer Barnes has developed a reputation as an exceptional musician through her work as a live and studio vocalist, arranger and educator. Referring to her debut CD recording, "You Taught My Heart", legendary jazz bassist Rufus Reid says, "Jennifer integrates rich vocal quality, clarity of pitch and emotion with an additional pivotal skill that sets her apart from other great singers; she sings improvisations that are melodically and rhythmically interesting from the point of view of a jazz instrumentalist."

An adept studio vocalist, Jennifer's voice has been featured on national television and radio commercials including Epson, Old El Paso, McDonalds and Kellogg's, and she has recorded song demos for such musical legends as Marilyn & Alan Bergman, Cy Coleman and Barry Manilow. She was also featured in a starring role as a jazz singer in a Chili's Restaurant television commercial airing starting in November, 2002, along with bass player Dave Stone. Jennifer's live performances include background vocals for Bono (2002 Grammy Awards Show), opening for the Count Basie Orchestra and performing with her own quartet at the 28th Annual IAJE International Conference in New York City (January 2001).

Jennifer has taught jazz vocal improvisation on the faculty of the Jamey Aebersold Summer Jazz Camps for six years. In addition, she has directed downBeat [magazine] award-winning Vocal Jazz Ensembles for over ten years, including California State University (Long Beach), Western Michigan University, the University of Miami (FL), Chicago College of the Performing Arts at Roosevelt University and the University of Southern California. Jennifer resides in the Los Angeles area with her husband, daughter and three feline companions!

Jazzy and Lovely
Don't let Jennifer's lovely and hypnotizing vocal instrument fool you! There's much depth of jazz knowledge and improvisational skill to be found beneath those beautiful strains! Her pitch and range never fails. Jennifer's backup combo, featuring her husband, drummer Steve Barnes, is first-rate and complements her superbly. The listener is treated to fresh arrangements drawing a diverse selection from the jazz literature. All are lovingly and artistically executed.
