Pianist, NPR host Judy Carmichael talks about jazz and … Seth MacFarlane?

Grammy nominated pianist/vocalist Judy Carmichael is one of the world’s leading interpreters of stride piano and swing. Count Basie nicknamed her “Stride," acknowledging the command with which she plays this technically and physically demanding jazz piano style. Judy’s new release I Love Being Here With You is her first all-vocal CD boasting an all-star line-up headed by multiple Emmy and Grammy winner Mike Renzi on piano, (who served as Music Director for Peggy Lee, Mel Tormé and countless others) along with celebrated tenor saxophonist Harry Allen (who’s recorded with Tony Bennett and many others) and bassist Jay Leonhart (whose collaborations range from Judy Garland to Sting!).

Judy Carmichael is a dynamic entertainer who plays infectiously rhythmic stride piano and who is also a fine jazz vocalist, doing proudly by half a dozen of the great standards she includes in her show. Accompanied by the renowned Colin Oxley and the excellent Steve Brown, she delivers a foot-tapping set of sparkling entertainment.
