Barbara Crow is a Jazz vocalist who has developed a beautiful singing voice that’s smooth and rich. Each song is delivered in her own style with unique phrasing that works so well together with her band of top New Zealand Jazz musicians. Her debut album ”Be Cool” has been released and was produced and arranged by Vaughn Roberts.
Her performances are sophisticated and elegant with a Buddy Holly microphone, and dresses from Vivien Holloway London creating the romance from the 40s and 50s era.
All the backing tracks for her solo work are done by professional musicians (Alan McPike from Scotland) and are of a very high standard. Performing as a solo act enables her to travel around NZ to perform. Barbara performs solo or as the Coolazz Jazz Duo with Ross halliday on guitar, and is ideal for cafe, weddings, festivals or private functions.
Ideal for: background music for corporate function, private party, wedding reception background
