Carolyn Leonhart is a jazz singer with one foot firmly planted in the rock/pop universe. She is the daughter of veteran bassist Jay Leonhart, so her jazz sensibilities flow from her upbringing, yet she gained wide exposure during the ’90s as a backup vocalist for the reunited Steely Dan.
Her jazz style is tinged with the edginess of a soul or R&B singer. “That Carolyn Leonhart can hold her own as a superlative vocalist is undeniable.” Christopher Loudon, Jazz Times. This concert is produced with The Wharton Center at MSU.
