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.

Benjamin Boone: The Poetry of Jazz

Read "The Poetry of Jazz" reviewed by Duncan Heining


Lenny Bruce might have skewered it with his skit, “Psychopathia Sexualis." Mike Myers' mildly misogynist poet might have parodied it in the movie I Married an Axe Murderer (1993).
