Connie Evingson
Jazz vocalist Connie Evingson is known for taking divergent musical paths. Her recorded catalog of acclaimed CD's ranging from jazz and Broadway standards to the music of Peggy Lee, the Beatles, Django Reinhardt, Dave Frishberg, Norman Gimbel and more reflects an adventurous spirit that knows no boundaries. A Twin Cities resident, Connie appears at the nationally renowned Dakota Jazz Club in Minneapolis, is the featured artist of the Jungle Theater's Jazz at the Jungle concert series, appears regularly at the Minneapolis Woman's Club Jazz in the Lounge series and tours worldwide, with appearances at concert halls, theaters and festivals in the U.S., Europe and Japan. She has been a guest artist at Jazz at Lincoln Center with Wynton Marsalis, Michael Feinstein and Vince Giordano, Garrison Keillor's A Prairie Home Companion, the Minnesota Orchestra and Toronto Symphony conducted by Doc Severinsen, the JazzMN Orchestra and Vocalessence, among others. Her ten CD's on Minnehaha Music have all charted in the Top 50 in the U.S. and Canada and can be heard on radio stations around the world. All the Cats Join In, her third CD in the "jazz manouche" style popularized by Django Reinhardt, features John Jorgenson and his Quintet and was released in Oct., 2014.

Whether singing bebop, bossa nova, big band swing or a ballad, Connie's voice is readily identifiable - sure in pitch, a tad smoky in places, razor sharp in articulation and exhibiting an inherent sense of swing that's dead-center in the pocket. Nominated as JazzWeek Vocalist of the Year in 2005 alongside Stacey Kent, Madeleine Peyroux, Tierney Sutton and Curtis Stigers, Connie has been featured on the Smithsonian's Jazz Singers radio series, NPR's Fresh Air and Weekend Edition, and is included on numerous compilations discs in the U.S., China and Japan. She is a two-time recipient of both the McKnight Fellowship for Performing Musicians and the Minnesota State Arts Board Artist's Initiative Grant.
