A Jazz singer is truly a unique combination of talents - the abilities to bend a melody, improvise on a harmony,and at the same time, keep a rhythmical sense that makes you want to pat your foot.  One such singer is Wendy Simon, originally a member of the recorded group, "52nd Street."  Their album on Inner City Records, "Scrapple To The Apple,"  earned them international recognition for their be-bop takes and advanced harmonic explorations.  ​Wendy Simon has re-invented herself in the modern Jazz world, creating and investigating newer sounds in Jazz, while still paying homage to the Jazz classics of yesterday.  Her adventurous, innovative and exciting approach is a sure crowd-pleaser.  Wendy Simon's musical background includes studies at Arcadia University, Chestnut Hill College and independent studies with musicians, Al Stauffer and Owen Brown, Jr.  Her search for musical excellence has given her an exciting new approach to stimulate Jazz audiences.   With a soon-to-be-released title, "Time Of Silver Rain," Wendy Simon stands poised to take her place among Jazz divas of the current Jazz scene - check her out!
