Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaugn, Billie Holiday. And Paula West….


Who’s the only jazz singer alive today that ranks up there with Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan and Billie Holiday? That would be Paula West, according to Time Out New York. See her at 92nd Street Y on November 19

Known for a distinctive repertoire that includes such diverse material as Bob Dylan’s “Like a Rolling Stone” and standards like “Fly Me to the Moon,” West adds her own depth and drama to whichever song she chooses. “In the end,” she explains, “it’s just getting the story across. To me, the words are the most important thing.” As the Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times critic Margo Jefferson writes in her liner notes to West’s 2001 album Come What May: “Ms. West never forces anything. She is rhythmically fluid and she knows just where to alter a melody, but there are none of the embellishments that show off the voice, bury the song and leave the heart untouched.”
