About the Event

SHELLEY BURNS VOCALIST & EDUCATOR Shelley  Burns has been performing professionally virtually all of her life and  is regarded as one of the premier jazz vocalists on the west coast. Her recordings have been heard on jazz radio stations across the nation, and  she has appeared at many jazz festivals in the U.S, as well as in  Scotland and Canada.  Shelley has entertained on cruise ships with Bill Dendle and Eddie Erickson, and has sung with Les Paul, Bucky Pizzarelli, and shared the stage with many other jazz greats such as  Bob Draga, Abe Most, Johnny Varro, and Jimmy Smith. Shelley has conducted vocal workshops in  conjunction with jazz festivals in the U.S. and Canada. Throughout the  2000s she appeared yearly in Greece at leading jazz clubs, even  conducting a jazz vocal camp in Athens. She is the staff vocal  instructor at two jazz camps in Northern California, and in 2013, she  received the "Great Lady of Jazz" award from the Sun Valley Jazz  Festival. She is also a marvelous comedic actress and has often been  compared to Carol Burnett and Imogene Coca. Like them, she can fracture  an audience with laughter, or mesmerize them with a beautiful song.

Marcus Crowder of The Sacramento Bee writes "Burns' new release, Let Yourself Go, is a classy, bright- sounding collection that could easily propel the versatile singer to new heights."

Peter Haugen, the theater critic for The Sacramento Bee writes "Burns ... has a winning mastery of pop phrasing. She makes it sound easy.”

"Compelling and imaginative" are the adjectives Bob Byler of JazzTimes uses to describe Shelley's vocal stylings.
