Karen Marguth

A Bay Area resident for most of her life, Karen Marguth has been receiving rave reviews since the release of her eponymous album in 2009. Jazz Magazine wrote: “Great big talent, much too small a pond...Karen is one of the finest American jazz vocalists you've likely yet to discover.” DownBeat gave her album a rare four-and-a- half stars, saying she's “...a spiritual grandchild of hipness highness Annie Ross. She swings fiercely, and scats with a proper abandon.” And Jazz Magazine of France included her on their list of the 101 best chanteuses of all time, saying “She has all the qualities of a great jazz singer.” Andrew Gilbert listed her bass/vox duo album among his list of the Best of the Bay Area, 2015.
