ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Swinging and straight-from-the-heart vocals from this adventuresome singer with loads of presence and a diverse selection of songs. Ellen Robinson is known for her ability to sing with a vocal palette that has a wide variety of colors in both her choice of material and also the range of emotions she covers in a performance. Her second CD "Mercy! Ellen Robinson Live" captures those transparent moments and one-of-a-kind performances in a compilation of songs selected from four different concerts since her first CD “On My Way To You.”

Ellen is backed by an array of talented musicians: pianist Ben Flint, bassists John Schifflett and John Wiitala, drummers John Arkin, Andrew Eberhard and Jeff Marrs, and reedman Charles McNeal.

“Ellen Robinson is a welcome entree into the world of jazz voices.
This CD is a keeper on the ‘play it again’ shelf.”
Bruce Tater, KETR - Commerce, TX

Ellen’s singing is enriched by a firm foundation of education and training: she has studied with the legendary Mark Murphy, former Voicestra member Raz Kennedy, jazz vocalists Madeline Eastman and Ann Dyer, cabaret performer Faith Winthrop, and scat singer extraordinaire Kitty Margolis. She earned a Bachelor of Music degree focusing on piano and voice from Ithaca College in New York and continued her education on the graduate level at C.W. Post, Hofstra University, Bank Street College of Education, and SUNY-Stony Brook.

“Ellen Robinson is blessed with great pipes.” Jazz Improv Magazine

In addition to her own jazz dates and recording projects, Ellen is currently the Director of the Anything Goes Chorus, a 50 member community chorus for men and women which she founded 25 years ago in the San Francisco Bay Area, and three women’s vocal ensembles: Girlfriendz, Swingshift Singers and Treble Makers. She is also a gifted vocal coach to many private students. Ellen performed with the acclaimed women’s a cappella sextet Vocolot from 1989 - 2005.

Live jazz – from effortless swing to hushed intensity...
Ellen Robinson's flawless delivery and beautiful timing are all the more evident in the spontaneous interplay with her excellent bandmates on this, her 2nd & all live CD. Her joy in performing is infectious; the songs range from effortless swing to hushed intensity & the 3 tunes she wrote- all quirky rhythms & catchy melodies- are like the lady herself: upbeat & always in motion...
