Vocalist, Tish Adams is a favorite on
New England's live music 'scene.' She has a compelling stage presence
and an extensive repertoire of time-honored Standards. She offers
fresh interpretations, yet sets a sentimental mood - a passionate
tribute to rich Jazz tradition. Her show is seasoned with long-forgotten
gems, obscure treasures and a dash of the Blues. She can burn an up-tempo
swinger or melt the audience with her sensitive reading of a slow,
smoky ballad. Fans compare her to the "great ladies of Jazz."
Musicians call her "a natural." She has acquired a faithful
following. One listen will explain why.
