Jazz pianist Martan Mann writes: Wow, Shelley . . . total fun! I really think that you are what jazz singing is all about. Your singing skill is excellent. You create music on the spot. And . . . you are so much fun. I know that all the musicians enjoyed playing with you and Bill . . . and the audience dug you as well. Looking forward to our next gig. Best, Martan :)

February, 2010, Athens, Greece.

February 22nd, 2010.
I'll be singing again at the
Parafono Jazz Club in Athens.
This year I will be with the
Andreas Thermos Quartet.

UPDATE 2008: I had a very successful concert at the Parafono Jazz Club. It was so crowded, and the band was really good. The legendary Mario, of Rebética fame, came on stage with me!

A BIG THRILL was that on my stopover in New York, I sang with LES PAUL. He has a steady Monday-night at the Iridium Jazz Club. I was invited to the stage and sang I'm Old Fashioned and then he and I did a duet of It's been a Long, Long Time.

Aug. 13, 2009: Les Paul died today at age 94. I feel so fortunate to have met him and to have made music with him.

UPDATE 2009: And this year on my New York stopover at the Iridium Jazz Club, I sang some numbers with legendary jazz guitarist Bucky Pizzarelli. WOW :-)

  UPDATE 2010:A video filmed at Parafono
