Marni Jazz Festival – 13ème édition – piano

“La chanteuse de Philadelphie a du blues et de la soul dans la voix”.
Denise King découvre le jazz à 13 ans et en écoute des heures durant, imitant les phrasés de Sarah Vaughan, Ella Fitzgerald, Nat “King” Cole et Frank Sinatra. Elle pose sans le savoir encore les jalons de sa future carrière internationale qui dure depuis 25 ans. Sa philosophie ? Perpétuer la tradition du jazz qu’elle chante avec son âme et son coeur. Mélodie et paroles, une bonne dose de talent, d’élégance et d’expérience twistés par un brin de de nostalgie et de romance propre aux ’jazz ladies’.
Pour accompagner cette élégance naturelle, qui d’autre que trois gentlemen ? Pour cette édition du Marni Jazz Festival consacrée au piano, Ivan Paduart, Sal La Rocca et Hans Van Oosterhout.

 

BIO
Denise King was born and raised in West Philadelphia and is the third of five children.
She was “discovered” by a friend who heard her singing outside of her home and introduced her to the world of Jazz performance. Her early performance experiences involved sharing the stage with many legends, Butch Ballard, Arthur Harper, Sam Dougherty, Cecil Payne, Jymie Merritt, Bootsie Barnes, Lex Humphries and many, many more. One night while performing at Zanzibar Blue in Philadelphia, Denise met Dexter Wansel, writer,arranger, producer, and A&R director at Philadelphia International Records. That meeting would forge a work relationship that has spanned twenty years.
Denise has mastered the art of making a song her own no matter what the genre. Over the years, she has shared the stage with or opened for such greats as Roy Hargrove, The Brecker Brothers, Phil Wright, Cecil McBee, Christian McBride, Dexter Wansel, Orrin Evans, McCoy Tyner, Bobby Watson, Lonnie Plaxico, Uri Caine, Sid Simmons, Dr. Guy Ramsey, J.D. Walter, Derrick Hodge, Chris Beck, Billy Paul, Jean Carne, Celine Dion, Bunny Sigler and the list goes on and on. With a voice described as velvet smooth she captivates you and holds you with every note. In this age of auto-tune, quick fixes and artistic gimickry, her love of people, performance style, and energy have ensured her a spot in the Jazz community for a long time.

She sings pop and jazz standards with touches of the blues, soul and even gospel in a voice steeped in a sophisticated, swinging, sometimes soulful, satin style.
Ms King has sung at almost all of the top clubs in Philadelphia, several in New York, Paris, Turkey, Brazil, Africa, Germany and Japan during the past 20 years.
