Jazz Encounters relaunches with legendary singer, songwriter, & NEA Jazz Master, Sheila Jordan!

At 93 years young, Jordan continues to wow audiences.

Jordan pioneered a bebop and scat jazz singing style with an upright bass as the only accompaniment. Jordan’s music has earned praise from many critics, particularly for her ability to improvise lyrics; Scott Yanow describes her as “one of the most consistently creative of all jazz singers.” Charlie Parker often introduced Jordan as “the singer with the million dollar ears.”
