Tell us a little about your background...
Vicki Burns is a jazz singer who has been delighting audiences in the Bay Area for years. A vocalist with impeccable taste, a sure sense of rhythm and a glorious tone, she infuses each song with heartfelt expression, digging into the lyrics and melody for their richest interpretation. No wonder the great jazz drummer, Max Roach once described Vicki's singing as "..a gold mine..! " Others have variously described Vicki's vocals as "..spectacular, yet soothing.." and "..smooth as silk..." Originally from New England, she has brought her unique song styling to clubs, concerts and special events throughout the San Francisco Area and now to New York City. San Francisco performance venues have included: Yoshi's, The Plush Room, Enrico's, Downtown, Shanghai 1930, Little Saigon, Cafe Trieste, Bistro Yoffi, Anna's Jazz Island and Jordan's at the Claremont Hotel in the San Francisco Bay Area. In September 2008, Vicki released her first live CD as an exclusive digital release available from reapandsow.com. Entitled Vicki Burns Quartet "Live At Anna's Jazz Island" it has received airplay nationwide and garnered praise form such luminaries as Scott Yanow who says : "Vicki Burns has a limitless future. Her very attractive voice, versatile style and infectious delivery combine to give her her own memorable sound.” John Gilbert of ejazz.com says: ”Vicki Burns does indeed 'burn' on this recording. The stars were aligned just right when she was blessed with a singing voice that was made for the jazz idiom.” PPI Radio Award/National Radio Award 2008 for the radio series "Jazz on the Bay", hosted by Melanie O'Reilly and features interviews and the music of jazz musicians/vocalists of the Bay Area as well as international jazz artists such as Dave Brubeck, Marion Mc Partland, Chick Corea, and James Moody. The winning series included "Women of jazz on the Bay, " which featured artists such as Vicki Burns, Anna de Leon, Susan Muscarella, Frankye Kelly, Tammy Hall, Faye Carroll,and Denise Perrier. In March of 2004, Vicki released her debut CD which features original music, lyrics and arrangements of both familiar and unusual standards. Entitled "Siren Song" it was produced by Vicki and the acclaimed flugal hornist, Dmitri Matheny, who also arranges some of the material. Matheny describes Vicki's voice as a ".. wonderful, rich instrument.. and says that it was a ..pleasure to work with her on this project..!" Jazz critic Dan Ouellette says that she "..succeeds with rapturous, mystical beauty..."

Hi Vicki! Sorry it took me forever to respond, but I have just been so busy that I haven't had any times for the boards! My sisters still live in Saco, and I get up there at least once or twice a year. You all had some winter these past two years!!! How much snow did you get in Houlton? One of my dorm roommates lived in Houlton, and she picked potatoes every year!

Hope the music is going well. I hope to see you live one day! Send me your August schedule, and if I can I will come see you!
Warm regards,
Carole

We had 140 jazz journalists weigh in on their favorite releases of the year. Here are their top overall picks, with top finishers in Latin jazz, vocal, debut and historical categories.
