Unique jazz vocalist, composer, and arranger, Kaylé Brecher (Kay-La BrecKer) is a singer who is at once completely distinctive and an amalgamation of her great musical influences. Showcase Magazine described her sound as a supple voice that suggests the pairing of Sheila Jordan and Sarah Vaughan. One could accurately add Morgana King and Ella Fitzgerald to that description. Hers is a versatile and flexible instrument with wide range, which can move from silky, smooth and subtle to bold and bluesy; refined to brash and raw. Her instrumental and compositional approach to singing leads to explorations of the mood, texture and style in each individual tune, which results in exciting variety. Imaginative, versatile and eclectic, she has performed in settings ranging from traditional jazz through bop, free jazz and experimental music.
Kaylé is a native New Yorker who began her career as a very young teen, singing blues and standards in the clubs of Greenwich Village. She has opened for Maynard Ferguson, Freddie Hubbard, the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, and Doc Severinsen, and has shared the stage with Mel Lewis, Lee Konitz, Red Rodney and others.
Her varied and active career has included concerts, festivals, live radio performances, a TV documentary soundtrack, clubs and other fine venues, studio production work and seven acclaimed recordings. 'Kayleidoscope', Kaylé's eighth CD was released in January 2020 and 'Bredux: collected edges' is her ninth recording, released in early June 2021.
