Julie Kelly, one of the most respected jazz singers on the West Coast, will be bringing her considerable talents to D'Anbino Vineyards in Paso Robles, accompanied by the Marshall Otwell Trio on Sunday, September 17th with an afternoon performance from 4pm-6:30pm.

Ms. Kelly, who was recently voted in the Top 10 for “Female Vocalist” in Downbeat Magazine’s Reader’s Poll, received critical acclaim and wide national jazz radio airplay for her latest CD, Happy to Be.

According to Jersey Jazz, “There are many fine singers based in the Los Angeles area, and among the best is Julie Kelly. Happy to Be is a winner from start to finish.“ Downbeat says, “Sassy, candid Julie Kelly tells captivating stories that hold us in thrall,” while All About Jazz raves, “Happy To Be has it all: fine instrumental solos, a Rolls-Royce rhythm section, sharp arrangements, choice material, and a stellar singer who makes great use of it all.”

Since 1984, when she released We're On Our Way with her quintessential version of “All My Tomorrows,” Kelly has been known as one of the finest interpreters of ballads. Her hip vocals shine through on an out-of-the-box repertoire that ranges from bebop to Brazilian. The late, respected jazz critic Leonard Feather once said of her, “Julie Kelly radiates a sense of joy and spontaneity. Listening to her, you are reminded that jazz singing is still alive and well!" Feather's successor at the Los Angeles Times, the veteran critic Don Heckman, referred to Kelly as having, “one of the finest vocal jazz instruments of the '90's."

Currently, Julie Kelly maintains a busy teaching and performing schedule in Los Angeles.
