“My audience, they need to go away happy. When I was a little girl, I was mesmerized when I saw someone like Streisand or Judy Garland. I was always happy after they performed. It has always been my goal to have the audience feel that good.”
About the Artist: Abbe Buck, a native Chicagoan, began to listen to the big bands of Woody Herman and Gene Krupa in Junior High. She began voice training at age 10 and singing professionally (and playing slide trombone) while in 9th grade. Buck had subsequently worked with several big bands including the Marie Landis Big Band in Philadelphia. Buck revisited her love of singers and songs in her early 30's, during a chance meeting with the late, great Rosemary Clooney. She claims that she learned how to sing all over again by listening to the phrasing and ''storytelling'' on the albums of Miss Clooney and other singers of her era; It was at the urging of Miss Clooney that Abbe Buck record ''Big Band Swing and Saloon Style, the songs from a bygone era”, which remains a seller on Amazon.com
