MJ Territo

MJ Territo sings standards and beyond, scats, writes lyrics and songs. She comes to jazz from the theatre and cabaret, and brings her experience in those forms to her jazz vocal performances. Her latest CD is "Ladies Day", 14 tunes celebrating the compositions of classic and contemporary jazz women, played by a crackerjack ensemble of musicians who happen to be women. MJ is on the teaching artist rosters of ArtsWestchester and Lifetime Arts and enjoys bringing the joys of jazz, blues and improvisation to students of all ages.
