Something to Live For: The Strayhorn & Ellington Collaboration – Jazz Vocalist Elaine Dame celebrates the collaboration of two of America’s most innovative and exciting jazz icons. On this, the centennial of Strayhorn’s birth, Ms. Dame will commemorate and celebrate the magic of their 29 year partnership.

Since 1996, the woman Time Out Chicago calls “a jazz dynamo” and “a gem in the city’s vocal jazz scene” has been turning heads and capturing attention at the nation’s finest clubs and venues. From her regular appearances at New York’s legendary Rainbow Room to her upcoming headlining appearance at the 2015 Chicago Jazz Festival, Elaine’s is a career spent at the heart of swinging and sophisticated jazz, bringing her joyful, modern take to these vintage standards.

Elaine’s sophomore recording You’re My Thrill was released to wide critical acclaim and world-wide radio play. Neil Tesser, Grammy Award-winning writer and author of The Playboy Guide to Jazz said this: “Elaine possesses an exacting, exhilarating command of melodic lines and emotional currents. It helps that she has pinpoint intonation: in performance, I don’t believe I’ve ever heard her miss her mark, even on difficult leaps or drops in melody line. But she handles those intervals with a dancer’s grace and a nuanced attack which allow the line to unfold seamlessly. She floats through a melody without any apparent effort; to appreciate her musicianship, listen to most other singers handle the same material (you can practically hear them sweat). And Dame’s phrasing manages to wed an improviser’s expressiveness with a welcome fidelity to the words and their meaning. I think if a saxophone could speak, it might sound like this.”
