Daryl Sherman
"A pianist, singer, and occasional songwriter and bandleader, Ms. Sherman is the living heir to the two great ladies of this highly rarefied tradition, the sophisticated and swinging Barbara Carroll and the delightfully kooky, musically majestic Blossom Dearie. Ms.Sherman draws on legacies and repertoires of both - and a great many others besides. Whether being silly or sophisticated, doing a song from Fats Waller or Noel Coward, she's never less than thoroughly convincing." - Will Friedwald, THE CITIVIEW NEW YORK

"No veteran singer inhabits the full range of American Popular Song repertoire quite like the irreplaceable Sherman. A gently swinging pianist as well, precious few possess her abundant versatility, style and charm." - Steve Futterman, The New Yorker

"Sherman is a marvelously charismatic artist with spontaneous wit that makes each appearance an unpredictably wonderful experience. The natural empathy that she enjoys with (her) stellar musicians adds a special dimension to their work together."- Joe Lang, Jersey Jazz

Daryl Sherman's new CD “Lost In A Crowded Place” on Audiophile label (www.jazzology.com ) highlights Louis Armstrong, Ella and Duke Ellington songs, but also two Sherman originals.
Here's what the critics are saying ...

“I would have singers study her phrasing on this disc - that wonderful science of balancing song and conversation. How she does it from song to song, from chorus to chorus - making each song its own complete emotional and intellectual statement like an aural short story - is something quite remarkable. Also, fine incisive notes by Carol Sloane” - Michael Steinman, JAZZ LIVES


"Sherman's 'Land Of Just We Two' has a gracious melody of Bernsteinian character, furnished with carefully considered lyric poetry. She has the rare gift of being able to create a song that is mature, durable and enjoyable.
How pleasing to hear a Daryl Sherman original featured as the opener of this attractive new release."
- John Robert Brown, Jazz Journal (UK)

“Ms. Sherman is very much in prime form throughout. She performs superior mostly little-played standards, forgotten gems such as Barbara Carroll’s title song and Louis Armstrong’s “If We Never Meet Again”. Her tender yet quietly expressive voice sometimes hints at Mildred Bailey or Lee Wiley but sounds very much like herself while her piano playing is fluent and creative swing. This highly recommended set is *****!”

- Scott Yanow, LA JAZZ SCENE

Daryl Sherman has been a part of the New York City jazz/cabaret scene since the mid-70s and she is one of the rare singing pianists equally talented in both roles. Voted Hot House 2015 "Best Jazz Vocalist" Sherman is a unique stylist with charm, quick wit, chemistry with her audiences and ability to make herself at home in any musical setting. From her early stints at Sinatra hang-outs like Jilly’s, there’s hardly a jazz joint, supper club or hotel Daryl has missed. When Artie Shaw formed a new band after his retirement, Sherman was his chosen singer, calling her "a first rate singer –musician”. Since then she’s renowned for a stellar 14-year run at the Waldorf=Astoria, where she played Cole Porter’s Steinway. Daryl's also appeared with Wynton Marsalis and Jazz At Lincoln Center Orchestra, Vince Giordano & the Nighthawks at 59E59 Theater, leads her own ensembles of stellar musicians. She also tours regularly in Japan and UK. Her CDs continue in regular rotation on Cable TV's Music Choice, Sirius, WNYC Radio, BBC, Spotify and she’s often guested on Marian McPartland’s NPR Piano Jazz.
