“Judy Carmichael has it all: a virtuosic pianist/singer/songwriter and equally gifted comic. Peggy Lee meets Randy Newman meets Paula Poundstone.” — Gary Hygom, Executive Director Patchogue Theatre
“Judy Carmichael is a great entertainer. Her playing is masterly and her linking material show her to be a raconteur in the Ustinov mold." — BBC Radio
“Carmichael exhibits a truly remarkable ability to channel Peggy Lee's breathy invitingness and her befogged insouciance.” — JazzTimes
“ . . . astounding, flawless, captivating.” — The New York Times.
Grammy nominated pianist/vocalist, Judy Carmichael is considered one of the greatest pianists in the swing tradition and one of the most sensitive vocalists. Of Judy’s singing, America’s premier jazz magazine, JazzTimes writes:
“Carmichael exhibits a truly remarkable ability to channel Peggy Lee's breathy invitingness and her befogged insouciance (and) echoes the intense perspicacity of the solo albums of Annie Ross. In other words, she winningly blends two of the all-time finest, most intuitive jazz singers.”
Judy Carmichael appears frequently on radio and TV throughout the world and maintains a busy international touring schedule. She is popular with both jazz and cabaret audiences with her soulful, swinging interpretations of the Great American Songbook, and equally impressive hilarious, improvisational anecdotes.
Her wit and musical knowledge come together on her weekly radio broadcast/podcast Judy Carmichael’s Jazz Inspired, now in its 18th year, where she talks with celebrated creative people about their love for jazz and how it inspires them, everyone from Seth MacFarlane and Chevy Chase to Robert Redford and Billy Joel.
Her new memoir, Swinger! A Jazz Girl’s Adventures From Hollywood To Harlem was released in December 2017 and is available at www.judycarmichael.com, www.amazon.com and your local bookstore.
