Jan Spencer sings and plays a warm, embracing, contemporary jazz that sometimes makes you want to move your feet to the beat and other times leads you to a place where you can relax, renew and celebrate you. Her fans say she “…has a voice like chocolate…” and describe her musical style as some combination of Bill Withers, Roberta Flack, Cassandra Wilson, Brenda Russell, Carly Simon and Jill Scott…smooth, jazzy and just a bit sassy…especially when she sings the blues! Seductive yet healing, her music leads you to a place where you can breathe deeply and enjoy the moment.
She has performed in venues such as Montreauz Jazz, around the globe and with such greats as Dizzy Gillespie, the late Lou Rawls, Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin, Bonnie Raitt, and Tony Bennett. She is equally adept singing at the piano and fronting jazz combos.
Jan is available for parlor jazz concerts or stage performances anywhere in the world.
