Molly Pitcher has been singing for many years. She has sung everything from folk songs to Carl Orff to Mozart arias but her real love is jazz. Presently she is the vocalist with the Four Jazz Quintet and also sings alto with the St. Cecelia’s Chamber Chorus. She has worked with big bands and with a variety of other jazz musicians in duos and small combos. Her influences include Ella Fitzgerald and Anita O’Day with a bit of Peggy Lee, Mike Murphy and Betty Carter to mix things up. She loves be-bop to Latin to swing. She considers her voice an instrument and loves to blend with all instruments. Molly finds singing jazz is an ever-changing delightful work in progress.
Plus Four Jazz Quintet includes James Williams, guitar, Silas Yates, trombone, David Halvorson, bass and Cy Sjofield on drums. We have been making music for years and enjoy everything from standards to Latin to bebop and other lesser-known jazz tunes. There are always new tunes to play or tunes to approach in a different way.
