Grace Testani

"If you like your singers bold and sassy, Grace Testani delivers on both counts"~ JazzTimes Magazine

About Me

A singer in the tradition of Annie Ross, Anita O'Day, Sarah Vaughn, Billie Holiday, Eddie Jefferson and Ella Fitzgerald, Grace combines lyrical and ethereal scatting - reminiscent of the great "bop" players - with a technically precise harmonic range and the kind of risk taking that few jazz singers attempt in their careers. She can infuse pop standards and show tunes with new life by employing intricate compound rhythms, as in her 5/4 6/8 arrangement of Lerner and Loews's Show Me or her funky 6/4 arrangement of Bill Withers' Ain't No Sunshine When She's Gone. In addition to her arranging, Grace is also a composer and co-writer with Chick Corea (Watching the Wind) and Kenny Barron (Morning Sunshower).
