A Jazz Vocalist who loves to doodle on the keys, Toni has performed all around, in & out, up & down Ghana.

With a genuine love for music she returned to the field after working with youth in undeveloped areas and Acting on some major stages in Atlanta. This helped reconnect her to that first love. She then headed back to Los Angeles and studied voice, theory & other music classes at LACC. She hooked up with an 17 year old by the name of Eloit Douglass and they went on to Osaka, Japan to perform for half the year. upon returning to the U.S., she returned to Atlanta and opened "Intown Sheet Music Store on Peachtree Street where she hired 7 music teachers to teach and also carried the largest supply of Jazz sheet music for a small independent store in Atlanta.

Moving to Ghana in 1997 she began a full time performance career as a Jazz Vocalist at the Golden Tulip Hotel, LaPalm, Novotel & Crown Apartmento Hotel. Through these perfomances she had the opportunity to perform for two of the Presidents of Ghana, UN Summit, Louis Sullivan Summit, numerous Ambassadors, NGO's, major events and keeping Jazz Alive in Ghana.

Introducing Marcus Roberts And The Modern Jazz Generation

At Jazz at Lincoln Center, where he was once a rising star, the pianist returns with a new 11-piece band which combines his trio with many of the younger musicians he has mentored.

Anat Cohen & Choro Aventuroso At Jazz At Lincoln Center

She comes from Israel, lives in the U.S. and has a deep affinity for Brazilian music — especially the improvisatory instrumental music known as choro. The clarinetist leads a new quartet in concert.

Clark Terry, Ebullient Jazz Trumpeter, Has Died

A member of the Count Basie and Duke Ellington Orchestras, Terry also enjoyed a long freelance career which included jazz education and a featured slot in NBC's Tonight Show band. He was 94.

Jackie Cain On Piano Jazz

Cain lends her smooth, feathery voice to "Wait 'Til You See Her" and "You Don't Know What Love Is."

How To Turn A One-Man Band Into A 10-Piece Orchestra

When trumpeter and composer/arranger Steven Bernstein started working with the virtuoso pianist Henry Butler, certain unique ideas — "Henryisms" — came to the fore.
