Toronto singer, pianist, arranger, composer and 2012 JUNO Award Nominee Fern Lindzon draws on a wide range of inspirations, finding both the personal and the universal in the work of Michel Legrand, Egberto Gismonti, Cole Porter, Mary Lou Williams and others old and new, near and far, all warmly sung, imaginatively arranged and gracefully played.
Stuart Broomer, writing in The WholeNote, described Fern as “a rare jazz singer” and noted that her “strong identity [is] based on nuanced expression, a clear, almost silky voice, and a freedom from the collections of mannerisms that many jazz singers use to distinguish themselves.” Shelley Gummeson, commenting in!earshot, suggested that Fern “personifies a woman who lives confidently with her own instincts and artistry”
Fern performs Cole Porter’s “NIght and Day”.
