Alma Zygier has been fascinated by the pre-war era of jazz; the singers, Ella Fitzgerald, Bessie Smith, Louis Armstrong, Billie Holiday, Memphis Minnie, and the Broadway composers who largely provided the repertoire, Gershwin, Kern, Porter, Rodgers.
She has a voice from another era and brings an emotional maturity to her performance that belies her years. Performing with a similarly-minded group of hot young players she brings her American Songbook repertoire to the 21st century.
