When Lights Are Low
Since emerging onto Philadelphia's jazz scene, vocalist Joanna Pascale has established herself as a compelling and skilled vocalist. At just 24 years old Joanna already has a working repertoire of over 400 songs. She brings a strong emotional element as well as a solid sense of swing to her uncommonly large catalogue of jazz standards. What really sets Joanna apart from other vocalists, though, is not her repertoire, but her musicianship. Despite her young age, Joanna brings a depth of artistry to her music that rivals that of many singers who have been in the business for decades. The Philadelphia Metro raved, 'Don't let her age fool you, Joanna Pascale is a highly sophisticated singer.' Joanna has also gained the admiration of Philadelphia's most prominent musicians. 'Joanna has her own style,' stated legendary saxophonist Robert 'Bootsie' Barnes, 'She has been influenced as have all young 'song birds', but once you hear Joanna you'll know it's her. Copycats don't last, but Joanna will be around for a long time.' Joanna's latest album, When Lights Are Low, showcases her approach to the timeless standards of American music. Joanna is able to enliven these songs in a unique and personal way. A young vocalist with an uncommonly mature depth of artistic skill and conception, Joanna Pascale is one of jazz's most promising up and coming singers.
