A sophisticated and consummate artist, celebrated vocalist Nancy Kelly presents her latest highly lauded album Remembering Mark Murphy in tribute to one of her musical heroes, with support from Denver’s finest players. Says Kelly:

“People often ask me who my favorite singer is, and my answer is always, without hesitation, Mark Murphy. With Mark’s passing, I was moved to honor him musically with this recording…. Most of the songs chosen for this recording were ones that influenced or moved me to become a jazz singer…. Thank you, Mark Murphy, for teaching me what it means to ‘sing from inside the song’, and for inspiring jazz lovers worldwide, and for setting the bar so high for spontaneous vocal creation.” – Nancy Kelly
