Tell us a little about your background...
Jazz has always been my passion since I was a young girl. Growing up as a child I was always listening to my parents music like Nat King Cole and the big band era. Both parents played instruments and influenced my love for music. I work as a solo/band vocalist/entertainer working in New Plymouth and around New Zealand in the wineries, cafes, and private sector. I love the retro Jazz look and dress from the 40s, 50s era with a Shure 55 Buddy Holly mic giving it a classic sound. This last year has been a real journey and I've just completed my debut album which is now available on CD Baby 2012. This album has some lovely cool latin tracks just great for the lazy summer days which is why I called it "Be Cool" which is also a song track on the album.

Featuring some of New Zealand top Jazz musicians with arrangements by Vaughn Roberts. Production is by Vaughn Roberts and Rata Records. www.vaughnroberts.com. Trumpet/Flugel: Vaughn Roberts, Drums/Congas: Lance Philip, Piano: James Illingworth, Guitar: Nick Granville, Bass: Mostyn Cole.

CD Review by Valerie Brown, Jazz Broadcaster on Coral Coast Radio 94.7fm
What a delight to experience the exciting jazz vocal talents of Barbara Crow on her debut album “Be Cool”.


Everything about Barbara shimmers like diamonds. She delivers with utmost confidence the well-chosen standards, and then sweeps us away on musical challenges such as Charlie Parker’s “Anthropology” and Chick Corea’s “Spain”, demonstrating not only her intelligent timing and phrasing, but also her total rapport with the fine musicians supporting her.


The album was arranged and produced by Vaughn Roberts, who also features on trumpet and flugelhorn, and with pianist James Ilingworth , Lance Philip (drums), Mostyn Cole on bass and Nick Granville (guitar) the group offers a beautiful top-class album which will satisfy the lovers of familiar jazz standards as well as the jazz thrill-seekers of new musical challenges.


Although Barbara says her influences come from such legends as Ella, Billie, Sarah, Carmen and Mel Torme, as well as others, I would venture to say that Barbara has claimed her style as hers alone, keeping her crystal-clear diction free of any false accent and full of her own warmth and experience.
The ten superb tracks follow each other with a comfortable flow and have a total recording time of 45 minutes.

I am proud to commend to you Barbara Crow’s debut album “Be Cool”, and look forward to hearing more.
