Marilyn Maye
Join Birdland favorite Marilyn Maye as she explores the jazzier side of her repertoire with a trio led by pianist Tedd Firth.

From a humble beginning as an amateur contest singing sensation in her native Topeka, Kansas, to 76 appearances on "The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson," a Grammy Award for Best New Artist in the mid 1960's and inclusion in the Smithsonian permanent collection of 20th century recordings, vocalist Marilyn has done it all. But despite endless kudos -- the late Ella Fitzgerald dubbed her “The greatest white female singer in the world” -- Marilyn was performing infrequently when a 2006 appearance at Lincoln Center sparked a career renaissance. Rex Reed said, "The second coming of Marilyn Maye continues full steam ahead… miss her at your own peril," while the Wall Street Journal said, "she has the rhythm and musicianship of a great jazz singer, the projection and personality of a heavyweight Broadway diva." The New York Times' Stephen Holden summed it up, saying Marilyn's "…relationship with her fans has the emotional depth and complexity of a solid, rewarding marriage. She has the inexhaustible stamina and vocal heft of a woman half her age, and her spirited optimism is irresistibly contagious."
