Twelve of Chicago's finest vocalists gather for one night to debut a new album of original, distinctly American music written by singer-songwriter, composer and trumpeter, Jeannie Tanner. These talented vocalists recorded Tanner's songs for her new release, "My Words and Music," and will perform them during this evening of spectacular entertainment. Never before has this renowned group of artists been brought together for one concert: Alyssa Allgood | Rose Colella | Elaine Dame | Kimberly Gordon | Paul Marinaro | Tammy McCann | Jeff Meegan | Typhanie Monique | Andy Pratt | Abigail Riccards | Michele Thomas | Amy Yassinger With just one performance, this will be an extraordinary evening of music, and a grand showcase of Tanner's breadth and talent as a songwriter and musician. "Jeannie Tanner is a triple-threat Chicago singer-trumpeter-composer, who probably couldn't play or write an unmusical phrase if she wanted to." Howard Reich, CHICAGO TRIBUNE. Tanner's mastery as a composer lies in her ability to fuse the spontaneity of old school jazz with memorable lyrics and musical hooks that send audiences home humming her tunes. Jeannie Tanner is an award winning composer, vocalist and trumpeter who performs and records with her band, the Jeannie Tanner Quartet. Tanner's publishing is represented by Heavy Hitters Music, Los Angeles, CA and her original music has been placed in television, film and can be heard on local, national and international radio, including her own Pandora Radio Station. She is a full-time musician, who performs regularly at venues throughout Chicago.
