Sandra Booker is regarded as one of the emerging and important voices in modern jazz vocal music, and was selected as finalist last fall in the Sarah Vaughan International Jazz Vocal Competition. Highly respected by her contemporaries for her virtuosic scat ability, impeccable timing, crystalline tone, and irrepressible musicality, the New Orleans native has a style that is familiar and completely new, all at the same time. She has performed with many jazz luminaries and rising stars including Lalo Schifrin, Wynton Marsalis and the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra, Harry Connick Jr., the New Orleans Jazz Messengers, Patrice Rushen, and Karen Briggs.
