One of our all-time returning favorites at Seattle Jazz Vespers is our friend Jacqueline Tabor, also known as the "Seattle Chanteuse." Jacqueline is an accomplished jazz, blues, and swing vocalist who enchants audiences with her powerful tones, style, and dynamic stage presence. This 4-time Earshot Jazz Vocalist of the Year and Seattle-Kobe Sister City Association Award Winner continues expanding her talents to entertain every audience. Tabor's unique bluesy style and charismatic personality have made her one of the most beloved jazz vocalists and storytellers in the Pacific Northwest. Some call it the "Tabor Sound," which is drenched in the natural rhythm of everyday life. She brings herself to every performance that encapsulates an authentic feeling of humanity. Tabor combines excitement and professionalism to everything music with a unique ensemble of Seattle's most talented jazz musicians or local artists when on tour to create a community-centered experience.
Through the struggle of the pandemic, Jacqueline found a new and strong voice that now appears in the form of poetry, original compositions, percussion, and swing dance. She collaborated with the multifaceted, award-winning, and outstanding musician Marina Albero during this time. This dynamic duo created a production called Don't Explain: A Musical Conversation Between Billie Holiday and Nina Simone which was a part of the 2022 Earshot Jazz Festival and was awarded Concert of the Year by Earshot Jazz and the Seattle Community. This friendship transcended Tabor from singer to musician and created an outlet for the pain and triumphs of this dark period of history.
In February 2020, Tabor performed a powerful tribute to Billie Holiday with multiple standing ovations and accolades and was nominated for Concert of the Year by Earshot Jazz. Since 2019 Jacqueline has been a guest artist for the prestigious Seattle Repertory Jazz Orchestra (SRJO). This beautiful partnership will continue for years to come.
Jacqueline Tabor is in the middle of a creative thunderstorm, -- empowered, strong, and full of love; this is a moment you do not want to miss. She always leaves an audience with a memorable and spiritual moment, yearning for more.
