Composer, bandleader and Seattle native Jenny Davis is a critically acclaimed
jazz vocalist, music educator, and passionate human rights proponent. Refusing
to conform to more vocal jazz idioms, Davis began composing her own material,
hiring instrumentalists, and taking her ideas onto the bandstand. With a desire to
focus more on writing, she was led to graduate school, and to alliances with
arrangers, producers and co-founders of her cooperative record label, Three
Pushed to the creative edge, her fourth album as leader, and latest release,
REARRANGED, is inspired by a devotion to gender rights advocacy. It is an
album in which the art of composition takes center stage, as all but three works
featured here have been crafted by Davis. Attracting collaboration from both jazz
and cross-genre arrangers , the album features an all-star cast, of seventeen
world-class musicians, including: multi-Grammy© nominated pianist, Jovino
Santos Neto, Dmitri Matheny; Mark Taylor, Kate Olson, Cynthia Mullis, Jim
Dejoie, Heather Bentley, David Lange, Chuck Deardorf, Jeff Busch, Lorrie Ruiz,
Vanessa Littrell and NYC Sirius String Quartet.
Jenny’s tour schedule has included both national and international destinations
— most recently performing to sold out audiences in Lyon, France, with the
David Bressat Trio. Jenny holds an MFA in Music Composition from Vermont
College of Fine Arts and a Bachelor of Music in Jazz Performance from Cornish
College of the Arts. She currently lectures at various Pacific NW colleges and
schools and is on music faculty at Island Music Guild, Bainbridge Island, WA.

Jazz artists Dmitri Matheny and Holly Pyle join forces for one night only in an all-star celebration of Joni Mitchell!
Roberta Joan "Joni" Mitchell is a Canadian singer-songwriter and painter. Drawing from folk, pop, rock, classical, and jazz, Mitchell's songs often reflect on social and philosophical ideals as well as her feelings about romance, womanhood, disillusionment and joy. Winner of nine Grammy Awards and an inductee in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, she has been called “one of the greatest songwriters ever” (Rolling Stone) and “the most important and influential female recording artist of the late 20th century” (All Music Guide).
Known for her “soulfully graceful, liquid-like voice” (Phoenix New Times), Los Angeles vocalist Holly Pyle started out as an opera major before studying jazz and psychology. Now one of the most popular vocalists in the west, Holly performs with leading jazz groups, tours with the progressive soul-pop band House of Stairs, and appears regularly as a solo a-cappella act using electronic looping to build masterful sonic creations.
Flugelhornist Dmitri Matheny has been lauded as “one of the most emotionally expressive improvisers of his generation” (International Review of Music). An honors graduate of Berklee College of Music, Dmitri Matheny vaulted onto the jazz scene in the 1990s as the protégé of jazz legend Art Farmer. Since then he has garnered critical acclaim and a loyal international following, releasing eleven CDs and touring extensively throughout the United States, Europe and Asia.The San Francisco Chronicle calls Matheny “one of the jazz world’s most talented horn players.”
