Legendary jazz vocalist Sheila Jordan has lived the jazz life and has loved every second of it. One of the finest jazz singers since Billie Holiday, her voice, like Billie's, resembles a saxophone improvising on a melody with exquisite tonal shadings that communicate emotion so directly, that it can be heart-wrenching. Charlie Parker often introduced Jordan as "the singer with the million dollar ears.” She "reigns indisputably as mellow mistress of any jazz club she visits." (Downbeat) and has been honored by the National Endowment for the Arts as a 2012 NEA Jazz Master.
