Melissa Morgan duo with Gerald Clayton
Brought up in the jazz clubs of New York City, Melissa Morgan has a voice that is unexpected. From the exterior you would assume a sultry lounge singer, which does make an appearance once and awhile, but from inside she contains a powerful instrument. "Prepare to fall in love," says the Bay Area Reporter, and fall in love you do.
On stage she bares everything and makes you laugh while doing it. While belting a blues or tenderly massaging a ballad, she has come a long way from her appearance at the 2004 Thelonious Monk Competition.
In 2009 Melissa released her debut album on Telarc Records, Until I Met You, to enthusiastic reviews and was embraced by the jazz community as "the one we've been waiting for" (Dr. Herb Wong, jazz critic and historian). Downbeat Magazine included her on their 2009 Rising Star List and JazzTimes has named her "audacious and decidedly salty."
