Rhode Island born Daryl Sherman has been a part of the New York City jazz scene since the mid-70s and she is one of the rare singing pianists equally talented in both roles. Sherman is a unique stylist with charm, quick wit , chemistry with her audiences and ability to make herself at home in any musical setting. From her early stints at Sinatra hang-outs like Jilly’s, there’s hardly a jazz joint, supper club or hotel Daryl has missed. When Artie Shaw formed a new band after his retirement, Sherman was his chosen singer, calling her “a first rate singer –musician”. Her CDs are in regular rotation on Cable TV’s Music Choice, Sirius/XM Radio,BBC, JazzRadio Berlin and she’s been a frequent guest on Marian McPartland’s NPR Piano Jazz.
Renowned for a stellar 14-year run at the Waldorf=Astoria, Daryl played Cole Porter’s Steinway. A recent CD, Mississippi Belle displays Porter songs in a New Orleans setting. No stranger to the Crescent City, she often appears at Satchmo Summerfest and Snug Harbor. In New York she’s played Kitano Jazz, Knickerbocker, Algonquin Oak Room, Iridium, Dizzy’s Coca Cola and Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis – also a favorite at the Mabel Mercer Foundation Cabaret Convention, Highlights in Jazz and Bryant Park Piano series, Midtown Jazz at St Peter’s and JVC Jazzfest in NYC nad Newport. She’s a 3 time MAC award winner and just named Hothouse Magazine “Best jazz vocalist” 2015.
