A long time resident of San Francisco, Paula West has been a staple of the SF Jazz scene with sold-out, long run engagements at Yoshi’s, the Plush Room, and SF Jazz Performances. She has also performed at the White House; Jazz at Lincoln Center (where she performed with Wynton Marsalis); the legendary Oak Room in Manhattan’s Algonquin Hotel; and top Manhattan jazz clubs; Birdland, the Jazz Standard and The Blue Note where she has built a loyal following. She has won the prestigious Nightlife Award for Outstanding Jazz Vocalist three times. In addition, she has enchanted critics and audiences from coast to coast – and as far away as Tokyo, Athens, Moscow, and Paris.
The new CD “Live at the Jazz Standard” will be available at the concert.
What the critics have said about Paula West
David Wiegand, San Francisco Chronicle, “…the creative spark that Mesterhazy and West have been making for several years is very evident” in their music making.
Steven Holden, The New York Times, she is a “mischievously sexy jazz singer” with a “thick velvety voice” capable of making “the earth move.”
Steven Winn, San Francisco Chronicle, “It’s doubtful that anyone is singing better than Paula West these days”
