Pamela Rose is a San Francisco jazz and blues vocalist who has thrilled audiences locally and internationally with her swinging, soulful style. Rose is that rare breed of entertainer who connects solidly with her audience by always delivering a personal and unforgettable musical experience. Her rich, warm voice and easy rapport with her musicians moves jazz and blues audiences of all ages.
Now Pamela Rose is coming out with her fourth CD, “Just For a Thrill”. Produced, arranged, and written with guitarist Danny Caron (Charles Brown, Bonnie Raitt, Ruth Brown), this romantic and sultry recording will be hitting jazz radio stations across the United States in January of 2006, and has already earned Pamela Rose advance praise.
“Just For a Thrill is a cup of slowly simmered jazz. Song after song features Rose at her finest. Intimate, at times hushed, deeply romantic...these are fully absorbed pearls and phrasings of a singer and composer who now knows she needs no improvement. And the band can’t be beat!” Bruce Kelly, Editor, San Francisco Magazine
Rose and Caron pulled together an impressive ensemble of Bay Area artists in order to create an ardent and intimate atmosphere from the first note to the last chord. Salty Hammond B-3 organ grooves are interlaced with more traditional piano and guitar jazz ensembles, delivering a mix of jazz standards and original compositions.
“Rose delivers the goods, blending her love of music with a romantic sensibility to create one fine and soulful jazz disc. Each track is absolutely true to the song. Sassy, saucy...stellar!” Ben Fong Torres, (Gavin Report, San Francisco Chronicle)
Pamela’s last CD “You Could Have it All” received airplay on over 280 independent jazz and blues stations nationwide with heavy rotation on satellite provided networks servicing 120 million subscribers, and resulted in a feature on NPR’s “All Things Considered”.
“Intelligent, hip...songs for grownups...penetratingly soulful” Paul Libertore, Marin IJ
“Rose sings with a confident soul-drenched style, downright sassy, with attitude to spare....” Jazz Now Magazine
