Rebecca Shrimpton, vocalist

Rebecca Shrimpton has been acclaimed as "a simply exquisite vocalist" with "mastery in the art of singing," who knows how to get the pulse and tick of every word."  (All About Jazz; All Music Guide)  Her CD Madman's Moon, with guitarist Eric Hofbauer, garnered international praise, earning a four-star review from the All Music Guide and making two Top Ten CDs of 2005 lists (Jazz Times Magazine and CHUO FM).  Her latest CD, Requited, features new songs by internationally best-selling novelist Anita Diamant (The Red Tent) and pianist Bert Seager, along with a brilliant band, including Rick DiMuzio (tenor sax), Jorge Roeder (bass) and Richie Barshay (drums, Herbie Hancock Quartet).
 
Rebecca has appeared with Joe Lovano, Steve Lacy, Oliver Lake, George Russell, Ran Blake, and George Lewis, and is vocalist for Boston's 18-piece Jazz Composers Alliance Orchestra, with whom she's recorded five CDs, the latest of which, The Same Thing, features blues legend Mike Finnigan (from Jimi Hendrix' Electric Ladyland).  Performance venues include Manhattan's Cornelia Street Cafe and Boston's Regattabar, Ryles Jazz Club, The Beehive, Jordan Hall, and Berklee Performance Center.  She was also featured on two PBS/NPR concert broadcasts and recordings, performing with singer/actor Theodore Bikel.

 

Rebecca has a master's degree from New England Conservatory, where she studied with Dominique Eade and John McNeil, and where she now teaches.  She's recorded on Rounder, Cadence, Red Toucan, Innova, Invisible Music, and Creative Nation Music (CNM) Records.
