ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
GINGER COMMODORE
SINGER/SONGWRITER/ACTRESS


On this her first solo Christmas CD she is pleased to have recorded songs in the styles (Gospel, Jazz, R&B and Pop) true to her upbringing and true to her heart. She is also happy that she had the opportunity to reunite with her friends in the Sounds of Blackness (Mary Had A Baby)(Thank you Gary Hines) as well as work with her cast members from Smokey Joe's Café (Let It Snow)(Dennis Spears -LA, Daryl Jovan-NY and Charles Johnson-NY).

This project allowed her to work with some of the Twin Cities finest musicians including Thom West-keyboards, Dean Magraw-guitar, Paul Johnson & Gary Raynor-bass, Dave Foley-Trumpet and Frank Wharton-vibes. A very special surprise finds her son Brandon stealing some of the drum spotlight from her regular drummer (her husband Robert). Check him out on Let It Snow, Mary Had a Baby and of course Drummer Boy.

Take a listen to this CD and you'll be sure to agree that there is something for everyone and that everyone will be truly pleased to have this as part of their collection.

Ginger has been a member of the Twin Cities music scene for many years. After attending college, she joined the Grammy Award winning Sounds of Blackness, touring across the United States and opening shows for The Jackson Five, Roberta Flack and The Pointer Sisters.

Through the years Ginger has also traveled the Gospel train. She was instrumental in ministering, performing and recording with Sam Davis and The Twin Cities Gospel Ensemble, and taking that 'soprano line' up a little higher with the JD Steele singers.

After performing with the Grammy Award winning, The Sounds of Blackness over 15 years, The 'Sounds' included one of her arrangements on their release, The Night Before Christmas: A Musical Fantasy. Only fitting since she originated the role of 'Mama' in their annual Gutherie Christmas performance.

Her theatrical credits include:
the World Premiere of DEATH IN THE FAMILY with the Minnesota Opera Company,
SELMA with the Penumbra Theatre Company,
BLACK BELTS at the Mixed Blood Theatre,
STAMPING, SHOUTING & SINGING HOME with the Children's Theatre Company and
the Broadway production of SMOKEY JOE'S CAFÿ at Hey City Theater.

She was a featured soloist in the Minnesota Orchestra Pops series at Orchestra Hall with Doc Severenson. As part of the Witness Music Series under the direction of Phillip Brunelle, she takes her musical knowledge and skills into the schools to work with students and recently during a young people's concert, performed with Patrice Rushen.

And now she's firmly planted in Jazz!

Ginger currently performs with the local jazz ensemble, Moore By Four.
With them she tours the United States performing at Colleges and Universities,
Concert Halls and Coliseums and renown Jazz Festivals.
Portugal, Italy, Finland, Sicily and most recently Japan have sampled her wares.

She fine tunes her craft by working with her own trio, Ginger Commodore and GCQ

This is a Christmas gift for my musician husband. We heard Ginger Commodore sing "Some where over the Rainbow" at the Minneapolis Institute of Art a couple years ago on a Family Day. My husband, Tom, stopped dead in his tracks, slid his back down the wall, and started crying. What a voice!

A joy to listen to.
It's great to have a variety of styles on one CD. The song selections were great, and, as stated in #3 above, a joy to listen to.
