Live Jazz New England

Join pianist Pamela Hines and her special guests for an hour-long broadcast from WICN's Performance Studio. She'll highlight many of New England's finest jazz musicians as well as major national talent. The show airs at Noon on the last Friday of every month.

 

Our next concert on Friday, April 28 at Noon will feature Amanda Carr.

Amanda Carr is a multi-styled vocalist/pianist who began professionally as a teenager in the rock and pop genre playing in Boston area night clubs with later years including jazz and big band, focusing on fresh interpretations of the Great American Songbook and receiving critical acclaim. She’s performed and recorded in the U.S. and abroad, including Australia and England. Twice a feature story by respected writer/author Nat Hentoff in The Wall Street Journal, she garnered global exposure as he hailed her, “...a true jazz singer in a time of wannabes”. (Sheʼs also featured in Hentoffʼs latest best-seller, “At the Jazz Band Ball: 60 Years on the Jazz Scene.”)  While still performing and tapping into her roots of pop, blues, folk & rock with artists like the legendary James Montgomery and Myanna, Amanda has been a guest vocalist with Keith Lockhart and The Boston Pops, The Artie Shaw Orchestra, Harry James Band and the Glenn Miller Orchestra, among many other guest vocal appearances.

Among her corporate and commercial work, sheʼs composed and performed music for two PBS documentaries, one being ‘The Story of Golf’ which received an Emmy Nomination, and also acclaim for her musical contributions to ‘Boston Red Sox: 100 Years of Baseball History’.

Paying homage to her big band musician parents, Amanda founded ‘American Big Band Preservation Society’ in 2009,  a non-profit (501c3) that preserves the essence of American musical heritage. She was chosen to represent the USA in a music ambassadorship to Shanghai, China in 2014. Currently, she is Artist Liaison for the esteemed organization, ‘Boston Women in Media and Entertainment’ authoring a popular online interview series. Amanda is an official CBS Radio commentator for Boston’s prestigious annual “Boston Pops July 4th” concert on the Esplanade with WBZ News Radio. With 5 jazz vocal recordings, global distribution and airplay, Amanda continues to perform as a solo artist while remaining a popular guest artist.
