World renowned trumpeter and vocalist Joe Gransden has performed worldwide with the big bands of Tommy Dorsey, Glenn Miller and most recently spent the last year performing
alongside saxophone great Kenny G. Known first for his hard bop approach on the trumpet, Gransden’s singing voice has been compared to that of Chet Baker and Frank Sinatra.
“Kathy is a musician’s jazz singer, something I noticed from our very first gig. She has a rapport with the musicians, treats them with respect, chooses great tunes, knows them well, sings in tune, knows how to phrase, communicates the essence of the tune and, most importantly… SWINGS. Can’t think of much more needed to vocally soar…and soar she does.”
