“Kimberly Gordon is the real deal. The ultimate swing-lovers singer!”
–Kurt Elling

“If sapphires could sing I imagine they would have a similar sound”
–Neil Tesser, 2014 Grammy-winning jazz journalist

Vivacious and velvet-voiced Chicago veteran Kimberly Gordon returns to delight
Bay Area jazz fans after more than a decade of success at the Green Mill in the
Windy City, two CDs released and a movie role as the Jazz Singer in “Chicago
Overcoat” in 2009. Lauded by Wynton Marsalis, Kurt Elling and 2014 Grammy
winner Neil Tesser alike, Gordon sings and swings with a unique talent, always
true to the melody as written, with loving respect for masters Ella Fitzgerald,
Sarah Vaughan, and Carmen McRae. With a natural timbre that evokes McRae,
Kimberly Gordon will reprise favorite tunes from her CD and Chicago organ trio
venues, accompanied by Bay Area Hammond organ wizard Brian Ho and guitarist Jack Riordan.

“…a higher echelon of musicianship…. a talented singer with a compelling
sound that’s earned her well-deserved staying power.”
–Jennifer Odell, Downbeat Magazine

“…subtlety of phrases and suppleness of tone. Plenty of Sarah Vaughan in this
singing–you can hear it in swooping gestures and dramatic leaps from high to low.”
–Howard Reich, Chicago Tribune
