Leigh Sutherlin Jazz Trio
An evening of jazz with Leigh Sutherlin is a journey of soulful vocals, edgy piano solos, bop, cool, brazilian, latin, and original jazz.
Leigh is a composer, pianist, vocalist, and music producer whose early jazz influences of Nat King Cole, Ella Fitzgerald, and Sergio Mendes set her on a strong path of clean, crisp jazz sounds with traditional instrumentation and extraordinary song forms.
Classically trained, her deep romantic roots found in composers Brahms, Debussy, & Gershwin eventually led her to her true love of timeless, well-appreciated styles of Bill Evans & Thelonius Monk. Her original jazz lifts you up & gives you something real to hold onto long after the song has ended. A graduate of the esteemed Indiana University School of Music, Leigh has a long list of music direction credits to her name in education and musical theater.
Her album, Sandbar, is available on iTunes and CDBaby.com.
