Live Shows this Summer! 

Hey everyone, I'm beginning to sing live shows again in June!  I'm really looking forward to seeing everyone again.  You can find the "open to public" summer shows at www.jessicaleejazz.com/shows . . . See you soon!

New LIVE CD - "I Wish You Love - The Pint-Sized Songstress Returns" 

Hey all, Am happy to announce that the new LIVE CD is now available for downloads on this site (www.jessicaleejazz.com) under "Music" on the home page!  This CD features live performances of both classic jazz and crossover jazz songs and is inspired by the "pint-sized songstress" - the late, great Maxine Sullivan who was from Pittsburgh and who influenced Peggy Lee, Ella Fitzgerald and more as she "put the 'ing in swing!"

 All proceeds from the song and album downloads benefits the "By Request" program to bring music to those who are "shut in" during (and after!) the coronavirus pandemic, including in senior living homes, nursing homes, hospitals and more!

THANK YOU for your support of live music!

New LIVE CD Coming in November! 

Hey all, I have a new LIVE CD that will be ready to release just after Thanksgiving, that is inspired by Pittsburgh's own late, great Maxine Sullivan (jazz singer & innovator who influenced Peggy Lee, Ella Fitzgerald and more)!  This album features musicians Mark Strickland (guitar), Lou Stellute (saxophone), conga drummer & percussionist George Jones, and a special appearance by rhythm guitarist Roy Ruzika too.  

I miss seeing everyone at live performances and wish you love and joy and health until I see you again!

The new Live CD is called "I Wish You Love - The Pint-Sized Songstress Returns"  . .   Maxine Sullivan's nickname was the "pint-sized songstress" at 4'11" and 85 pounds fully grown :) . . . 

More news on the release coming soon.  Until then, I Wish You Love . .
