Vocalist Jennifer Keith is an American Classic and a descendent of a line of entertainers that began with her Great Great Grandfather B.F. Keith, the “K” in RKO Pictures, one of the Big Five studios of Hollywood’s Golden Age.
Jennifer began her professional career appearing weekly at a supper club in Long beach, California, where she learned the classic vocal stylings of the jazz and pop singers of the 1940’s and 50’s. She was heavily influenced by leading vocalists of the greatest era of music including Peggy Lee, Ella Fitzgerald, Keely Smith, Julie London, Patsy Cline, Jo Stafford and June Christy.
Mando Dorame, the Royal Crown Revue’s tenor saxophonist discovered Jennifer Keith, guiding her musical direction and helping her form a jazz quintet.
