“Extraordinary is the word!” said jazz critic Don Heckman from the Los Angeles Times.
She has sung all over the world from the famous Ronnie Scott’s Club in London (where she was asked to record for their label) to Jazz at Lincoln Center and Birdland in New York to Oakland’s Yoshi’s, as well as many of the major jazz festivals.Her style includes an amazing range from gospel and blues to Braziian Bossa Novas. From Latin to Bebop, from Vocalese to the most heartfelt ballads. She sings in several languages. “Everything she sings comes off beautifully, with amazing control. If she sings loud and brassy, she nails it; if she goes soft and silky, she owns it.”(Baker and Taylor’s CD Hotlist review) Jazz vocalist Jackie Ryan has been thrilling audiences across the globe with her powerful 3 1Ž2 octave range and her amazing stage presence. She has a style that is uniquely her own. Born of a Mexican mother who sang in Operettas in Mexico and an Irish father who sang classical tenor in many languages, she was, as one critic put it, “simply born to sing.”
Upstairs at Vitello’s rated as “LA’s best listening room” and supper club atmosphere. After show “HANGS” are held in the Vitellos’ downstairs Bar where you can meet up with the musicians between shows.
