Alma Zygier - American Songbook

Alma Zygier has been fascinated by the pre-war era of Jazz; the singers, Ella Fitzgerald, Bessie Smith, Louis Armstrong, Billie Holiday, Memphis Minnie and the Broadway composers who largely provided the repertoire, Gershwin, Kern, Porter and Rodgers.

She has a voice from another era and brings an emotional maturity to her performance that belies her years. Performing with a similarly minded group of hot young players, she brings her American Songbook repertoire to the 21st century.
