The Judy Chamberlain Swing Band
Ask Judy Chamberlain to sing your favorite song from the Great American Songbook, and you can make a safe bet that — no matter how obscure it may be — she’ll do it on the spot, usually including the rarely done verse, while adding her own gently swinging emphasis. If she doesn’t know the tune, hum a few bars and there’s a fair chance she’ll have it ready to go for the next set.
Chamberlain’s easygoing interaction with her listeners transforms her New Year’s Eve celebrations into marvelously spontaneous events, in this case aided by a first rate back up band that includes saxophonist Steve Wilkerson, pianist Frank Collett and guitarist Al Viola. (DH)
