Perhaps in the main jazz centers of America the name Jacqueline Tabor is not very well known, but in Seattle this singer is a very visible figure of the local scene. Jacqueline and was born in these parts, in the north-west of the USA, in the city of Bellevue, Washington. She began to study music in her native city, but continued her education in the south, at the University of Baton Rouge in Louisiana, where she was instilled for the rest of her life with a love of blues. Since 2003, after returning to Seattle, Tabor began to perform actively in local jazz clubs as a vocalist, and in 2011 founded The Jacqueline Tabor Jazz Band. In addition to vocals teachers, her style of singing was influenced in many ways by Edmonia Jarett, a famous jazz singer and, at the same time, the godmother Jacqueline. In the same 2011, Tabor successfully performed in Japan, in Kobe, sister city of Seattle, and after returning, released her debut album What a Wonderful World. A year later, there was another album, The Jazz in You. Presented today, Lady in the Gown was the third in the discography of the singer.

The name of this album of fifteen tracks was received for the only original composition, all other things are classical and well-known jazz standards. The repertoire, on the one hand, is a win-win for a strong professional, and on the other - complex, in order to show its individuality. Ask any jazz connoisseur how many versions of On Green Dolphin Street or Misty he heard, and whose performance he remembered? Nevertheless, the lyricism of the filing in Garner's Misty, along with the unusual interpretation of Autumn Leaves, made for me these tracks one of the most interesting in the album. I remember very fine penetration into the Brazilian aura of the famous song of Jobim Dindi and successful transfer of blues shades to Never Make a Move Too Soon from the repertoire of BB King and I Can not Give You Anything but Love.

While recording the album, Jacqueline was accompanied by a trio of double-bass guitar. And not just accompanied. In arranging compositions, each of the musicians had a place to demonstrate their own skills. Very good, in my opinion, guitarist Cole Schuster in Autumn Leaves and in dialogue with contrabass Greg Feingold in Tight. Greg gave his play extra expressiveness to the voice of Jacqueline in Misty and Mood Indigo. Well, the drummer Max Holmberg, of course, was at the height of the oriental rhythms of the famous Caravan.

In general, the ability of Jacqueline Tabor to find some individual colors in each standard and the masquerade of her partners left a pleasant impression. This singer deserves, in my opinion, wider recognition outside of her region. Perhaps this text will help.
