ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"One of the best jazz singers on the planet" Ron Steen


"I just popped in your CD. All I can say is: Wow! Not only can you sing,

but you can swing! I'd love to work with you!"

Jim Martinez - Jazz Pianist - Steinway Artist

"When a musician plays for Rebecca, they can finally just relax.....and breathe"

Craig Snazelle - Bassist

"She swings hard"

Dennis Caiazza - Bassist

"There is a reality and purity in Rebecca's voice, no gimmicks, the way jazz vocalists used to be"

Art Abrams - Band Leader

"When I heard Rebecca singing, I thought..."Ella's back."

Meadowlark Lemon - Former Harlem Globetrotter/Inspirational

Vocal jazz the way it used to be...Pure straight ahead swing reminiscent of Ella Fitzgerald, June Christy and Anita O'Day. That's what you get with Rebecca Hardiman.

Rebecca started her career in 1987 with the Boston-based vocal jazz group The Ritz and performed throughout the United States, and at the Montreal Jazz Festival in Canada. While with The Ritz, she recorded a CD for Denon Columbia entitled The Ritz. That recording has recently been re-released as part of the "Giants in Vocal Jazz" available at Amazon.

In 1992, she started the Portland based vocal jazz group "Euphoria" which performed for 10 years in the Pacific Northwest - and was the opening group for Mel Torme' when he appeared at The Eugene Hult Center in 1993.

Now on her own as a solo artist, she has gained much respect and accolades from notable Portland jazz artists. She performs regularly with top musicians including Ron Steen, Dave Captein, Dan Presley, Brant Allard, Kurt Deutscher and Ray Hardiman.

Rebecca recorded a CD of original gospel Big-Band songs in 2009, and more recently - a CD of favorite jazz standards in 2013 - and her latest release "Easy Living" out August 2015.

Musician
Becky sings from the heart. She understands, intrinsically, what swing is and how to sing with a sense of artistry. This is a beautiful voice, a voice with clarity and expression. Surrounded by outstanding instrumentalists, Becky sings great songs with unequally styled with artistry and passion. A hip CD.
