Patricia Adams

Patricia Adams, bandleader and vocalist, shuttles her renditions of standards from renaissance Harlem and Tin Pan Alley between Manhattan, Westchester, Hartford and Boston. Stepping onto a nightclub stage for the first time in 1992 at Scullers Jazz Club in Boston, Adams segued to designated show opener there for the Frank Wilkins Vocal Showcase until 1996. Many open mics and pro bono gigs later, she traded her thirty-five year career in human resources management for life as a full time artist. Her venues now attract those who enjoy the jazz and blues standards of the 1930's and '40's. Her mailing list has grown from family and friends to thousands. She plays with some of the world's renowned jazz artists, including Ray Santisi, Marshall Wood, Bob Moses, Joe Hunt, Bill Wurtzel, John Repucci, Frank Wilkins, Fred Hunter, Ross Schneider, Joe Lovano, Stanley C. Swann, III and the late Jimmy Hill, so far. Adams plays to the continuing demand of a growing 'seniors' market. Her one-woman-shows, singing live vocals to soundtracks make the rounds of area residences and facilities. Adams brings her 35 years' corporate experience to Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA with her leadership skills workshop for the entrepreneurial musician, Bandleader Toolkit© in collaboration with her music director, Berklee Professor Ray Santisi. Earning BS and MBA degrees in the 1960's, Adams studied music theory, harmony, and improvisation at the New England Conservatory in Boston and at the Performing Arts School of Worcester in the 1990's. She has studied with Semenya McCord, Dominique Eade and Frank Wilkins in Boston and with Jim Carson, Jeannie Lovetri of Voice Workshop, Sheila Jordan and Kirk Nurock in Manhattan. A voting member of the National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences, Adams also served on the board of the New England Conservatory. She is included in Scott Yanow's 2009 edition of "The Jazz Singers". Learn more about this chanteuse at www.patriciaadams.com DISCOGRAPHY

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
