An international and local favorite, Kitty Margolis appears with her band of all-star musicians as part of the Stanford Jazz Festival. She'll perform a wide variety of beloved jazz tunes including her signature ballads deemed "sumptuous, heart-stopping affairs" by the San Jose Mercury News.
Margolis is widely recognized as one of the most innovative and inspired singers in jazz today. Her imaginative improvisations, dynamism, and inventive scat have redefined the art of jazz vocals.
Jazz Times has praised her "visionary approach to melody and rhythm," and noted New York writer Stanley Crouch observes, "Kitty Margolis is an original who has made the heritage of all the great jazz singers her own.
Beyond her virtuoso technique, she has an epic feeling, a willful breadth of emotion that is artfully focused on the details of life. She is not afraid to be as intimate as a diary or as athletic as necessary in order to stand up to the power of her band.
Like all true artists, Kitty Margolis adds something good to the world that it did not possess before she came along. She is, as they say, "the real thing."
