Vicki Burns / Bio

Vicki Burns is a jazz singer who has been delighting audiences for years. A vocalist with impeccable taste, a sure sense of rhythm and a glorious tone, she infuses each song with heartfelt expression, digging into the lyrics and melody for their richest interpretation. No wonder the great jazz drummer, Max Roach once described Vicki's singing as "..a gold mine..! While in the San Francisco area, performance venues have included: Yoshi's, The Plush Room, Enrico's, Downtown, Shanghai 1930, Anna's Jazz Island and Jordan's at the Claremont Hotel in Berkeley, CA.. In September 2008, Vicki released her first live CD as an exclusive digital release available from reapandsow.com. Entitled Vicki Burns Quartet "Live At Anna's Jazz Island" it has received airplay nationwide and garnered praise form such luminaries as Scott Yanow who says : "Vicki Burns has a limitless future. Her very attractive voice, versatile style and infectious delivery combine to give her her own memorable sound.” John Gilbert of ejazz.com says: ”Vicki Burns does indeed 'burn' on this recording. The stars were aligned just right when she was blessed with a singing voice that was made for the jazz idiom.” This CD has served as a wonderful introduction to the New York City jazz scene where Vicki has recently performed for enthusiastic audiences at Birdland, The Iridium, Zinc Bar, North Square and on April 23rd a debut at the Metropolitan Room with a Tribute to Anita O'Day.
