Musician

Whether in the intimacy of a club date or the glitter of a Las Vegas showroom, Shawnn has delighted audiences from USA to Europe with her highly popular jazz repertoire laced with blues-oriented improvisations. Evident in Shawnn's liveliness of lyrical phrasing and intermittent scat variations is the influences of Carmen McRae and Sarah Vaughan, from whom she draws that inner core of creative energy. But good genes help, too. Shawnn's father was the late renowned bassist Jimmy Woode, veteran of the Duke Ellington band

Linda has performed across the country from San Francisco, Los Angeles, Chicago, New York and Seattle. Kosut grew up in the Bronx (NY), and as she tells it, had a lifelong dream of singing and performing - yet she did not make that into reality until “later in life.” But, since making that shift in her life, and “putting one foot in front of the other, I have created opportunities and achieved a success with my music that I did not think was possible.” Her first two CDs received national acclaim

Pam Brennan

I was witness as a little girl to the Beatle's invasion of America. Thank you God for my being born at that time. I often wonder what it is like for people who missed the phenomenon. Music was a big part of my formative years. My Parents were both very talented Lindy dancers, so we grew up listening to Benny Goodman, Louis Armstrong, and of course, Frank. On many a magical Saturday evening I watched my Parents gliding out to their dance, my Mother’s Emeraude lingering ever so gently. I vaguely remember being 3 or 4 as my Mother sang her favorite, Embraceable You to us. Many years later she would play us the reel to reel tape and there I was cutting her off so that I could sing
