In the Mood for Jazz

Since her arrival to Seattle in 2008, international jazz vocalist Jennifer Kienzle has emerged as a singer adept at conveying a direct and honest interpretation of the American songbook. Jennifer is known for her purity of tone, playfulness with song and easy rapport with her audience. Influenced by the greats such as Sarah Vaughan, Carmen McRae and Dianne Reeves, Kienzle has an attention to detail that employs both intuition and careful study and, whether performing her own arrangement of a song or singing on a standard form, her own sound is evident to the listener. As the winner of the 2014 Seattle-Kobe Jazz Vocalist Audition, she has performed in Japan, Germany and Switzerland and enjoys actively contributing to the sonic landscape of Seattle’s jazz scene. She consistently performs in and out of town, both with her own quartet and The Easy Street Band. Kienzle is currently preparing to record her debut album this spring and will be performing in Europe this coming summer. This concert will be her Vashon Island debut, featuring Cole Schuster (guitar), Greg Feingold (bass) and Max Holmberg (drums).
