ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Pamela Hart is highly regarded as Austin Texas' finest jazz vocalist. Noted by Austin Women's Magazine as "Austin's First Lady of Jazz," audiences rave about Pamela's excellent pitch, clarity, and soothing vocal quality. "Her warm, clear tones and meticulously controlled pitch carry an illusion of effortlessness"--Tribeza Magazine. Her sultry rendition of classic jazz standards and contemporary music wins immediate acceptance by any audience. Born in Los Angeles, California, Pamela moved to Austin, Texas in 1982. In addition to regular appearances at Austin clubs, restaurants, live music broadcasts, weddings, banquets/parties, and festivals, Pamela and her husband Kevin Hart have produced (and she has performed in) the semi-annual Women in Jazz Concert Series—the greatest events for female jazz musicians in Texas—1994 through 2007. The series also includes a Vocal Performance Workshop where Pamela and other professional vocalists and musicians share performance techniques, communicating with musicians and many other aspects of jazz singing.

In May 2003 the Women in Jazz concert consisted of a solo performance by Pamela Hart of "Blue Gardenia: A Tribute to Billie Holiday." In addition to singing an outstanding tribute to Billie Holiday, Pamela had them on their feet again in "Encore" Performances in September 2003. In May 2004, Pamela performed in another solo concert "The Great American Songbook." In October 2006, Pamela gave another memorable performance at the Women in Jazz Concert Series. She has been the opening act for Kirk Whalum, The David Murray Trio, David "Fathead" Newman (1997), Dianne Reeves (1999, 2001), Rachelle Ferrell (2005), Patrice Rushen (2007), and the encomparable Miss Nancy Wilson (2000, 2001). Winner of several Austin Jazz Players and Critic's Poll for Best Female Jazz Singer, Pamela's appreciation for the great masters of jazz is apparent in her intonation, grace, and style. She attributes much of her learning to Billie Holiday, Sarah Vaughn, and Nancy Wilson.

In July 2001, Pamela completed a European jazz festival tour, including the Montreaux, Vienne, and Juan des Pins Jazz festivals, with the Texas State University Jazz Band, directed by the legendary Dr. James Polk. She knocked made waves with the IAJE African American Jazz Caucus Orchestra on Saturday, January 13, 2006. Pamela will perform again with the 2008 IAJE AAJC Orchestra in Toronto, Ontario Canada on Friday, January 11th..

With her performances, the Women in Jazz Concerts, and Vocal Performance Workshops, Pamela is making a difference in the jazz scene in Austin. Her debut CD "May I Come In?" was released in March 1998, under the HartBeat Productions label. The CD was reviewed in the June 1999 issue of JAZZIZ Magazine. In addition, "Ever Blue," a track from the CD is included on the JAZZIZ June 1999 CD and "What Are You Doing the Rest of Your Life" on the July 2000 CD. Her next CD project, planned for 2008, includes "For Heaven's Sake," "The Sweetest Sounds," "Mr. Ugly," and "Say It Isn't So," which is arranged by Gil Askey. Pamela Hart is a young woman who steals the heart of any jazz aficionado. Be prepared to shout "encore!" You can learn more about Pamela by visiting her web site at http://www.pamelahart.com
