Ginny and I have just returned from our cross country trip. We had a wonderful time everywhere we went, but our time in Minneapolis was more than just wonderful. Thanks to you, Connie, it was MAGICAL. Your warmth and graciousness (not to mention your prodigious talent) made Jazz In The Lounge the highlight of our adventure. Thanks so much! -Ken from Lansdale PA

Discovered you on Pandora, and now I love your wonderful voice. I cannot describe it but I have to stop to listen every time you come on. Your rendition of Besame Mucho is the best I have heard, and I have heard many. Come out to Utah or Las Vegas, I would love to go to one of your concerts.

Played a number of your Minnehaha releases on my former "Modern Jazz Classics" program which was internationally syndicated.All that Minnehaha sent were featured on one or more of my programs. My favorite: your collaboration with the late Dudley Hill's Pearl Django, "Gypsy In My Soul." My favorite from that release: I Cover The Waterfront. Hope all is well with you and your career.

Connie-- so sorry to hear about Ross the news travels fast even down to Phx AZ I don't have any other contact info for you except this Here is a poem I find comforting in days like this Do not stand at my grave and weep I am not there I do not sleep I am a thousand winds that blow I am the diamond glint on snow I am the sunlight on ripened grain I am the gentle autumn rain When you wake in the morning hush I am the swift, uplifting rush of quiet birds in circling flight I am the soft starlight at night Do not stand at my grave and weep I am not there. I do not sleep JOYCE FOSSEN

Hi, Connie! A few months ago I discovered your work. This is something that I love so much! When alone at home, I am listening to you and dance. It is such a pleasure! Thank you! Constantly I am listening to you at work. Our patients ask me who is singing? It's great!. I tell them your brief biography and write on a piece of paper your name so they can find you at home on the Internet. Thank you! Be healthy and giving us all happy!

I am a so so Jazz pianist. Am planning to cut my first CD at age 80. I have a list of 25 songs I play to choose from. In searching for the "best" recordings of these I was amazed to find someone I never heard of place 5 on the list. You're more gifted than Ella or Billie in my opinion. In my life you're the first woman to stir attraction with voice alone. I couldn't find the French Lyrics to Duke's April in Paris on the web. Where can I find them?

I have been a jazz lover all of my life. A busy career and family have restricted my exposure, for the past many years, to the likes of Pandora where I created a "Hot Club" station. Connie Evingson kept showing up and I always gave her a "thumbs up". Finally I downloaded some of her music and became a fan. Last week I decided to expose myself back into the live music scene. I was elated to see that Connie was performing at the Dunsmore Room in Fridley. It was one of the most enjoyable evenings I have spent in some time. Connie - you are awesome and I plan to see you again. Thanks for sharing your gift of song and your talented musicians.

I'd happily anticipated your exceptional voice, your impeccable phrasing and strong playing from your band -- and you more than met those expectations.

Is there really any female jazz singer better than Connie Evingson on the stage today? I was totally pleased in seeing Connie and her small group play at the Jungle theater during my recent trip back to Minneapolis on September 6th. Both shows were sold out (no surprise there) and Connie was able to help me secure a much coveted ticket to see her perform. It was quite the show and showcased some great talent and the opportunity to experience Connie's unique ability to interpret standards from classical American fare. It's time for Connie to start performing some of her own inner musical secrets!

Hi, Connie. The Frishberg song you and I and Jon were trying to think of after the afternoon show is "Looking Good." The corollary to "You Would Rather Have the Blues." Once again, wonderful performance. Not everyone can do Dave's songs but, like Bix, "you're one of the favored few."

I've been listening to you sing for several years now, once I discovred that you were a jazz artist, after hearing you on a local jazz radio program here in Arizona. I distinctly remember your beautiful presence and smile when I first met you at the Urban Arts program, long ago in Minneapolis. I plan to visit home late this summer and will certainly be looking to see whether you'll be performing locally at that time. Keep on smiling...

Hi, As a native Minnesotan, I have followed Connie's singing since the '90s. In fact, I reviewed her "I Have Dreamed" CD for JAZZ MIDWEST (now defunct, unfortunately). I just heard her interviewed on NPR, hearing bits of her tribute to Norman Gimbel (what a wonderful lyricist). Where can I get a copy of that recording? All the best to a lovely lady with a wonderful singing voice, Tom Jacobsen

I too listened to your interview on public radio this morning. I was surprised to find that Shazam did not recognize your songs. Hope your music will get more recognition as your voice, positive themes (and enunciation) are quite refreshing.

Heard you (and of you) on NPR this AM. VERRY NIICE work! And come down to the South, but August is probably NOT a good time for a Minnesotan. Sing long and prosper.

Connie, I was my great pleasure to meet you after your first night performance at Dimitrio’s Jazz Alley a couple of months ago. I introduced myself and offered you my personal perspective that “You are wonderful!” Well, I just had to share it with someone. You and I had a short discussion about Brazilian music and how it is particularly poignant, with songs like Dindi, Insensatez, Girl from Ipanema, Meditation, etc., all written by Antonio Carlos Jobim; not the blues but a softer, sadly sensitive variation that somehow fits in with the samba culture of Brazil. I love your song selections and have discovered how many of them are on my list of 100 personal favorites. I can’t wait for you to return to Seattle. Hurry back. Walt Wilson

I just heard you sing "Night and Day" and I loved it. Uplifting piece. Back in the 60s and early 70s I was friends with Johnny Mercer and his wife Ginger and stayed at their Laguna Beach house often and I learned to love the sound. I must say you do it well.

I'll be back for some more of your albums soon!

Hey Connie, I happened to hear, through a friend of mine, a number of your songs (a.o. After you've gone, In a Sentimental Mood) and I love your work! Not only is your voice beautiful, but I love the original accompaniment: Django guitar and accordion, which I play myself. I play in a band with the same type of Hot Club De France instruments. It must be a big thrill those great old jazztunes with such a wonderful singer.All the very best from Holland.

April 13, 2012 Good morning Connie, We saw and enjoyed your singing last night in the Williamsburgh Room at the Lexington restaurant in St.Paul, MN. You were terrific and your Trio did a great job also. The only negative was a group of two couples who would not stop talking during your singing. The only time that they were quite was when you guys were taking a break because they were eating and filling their mouths with food. Do you have any suggestions on how to get a group like that to keep quite? I thought of buying them a big dessert hoping they would keep their mouths full of food but I didn't do that. Thanks for the enjoyable evening, Ginny and Stuart Campbell !

Saw the wonderful Moore x4 Ruby's retro last evening. Simply the best, as always, but struck a memory chord of my first time with the group somewhere in St. Anthony on Main that simply shocked me with srtistry. Your wonderful music has enriched my life for the past 22 years and I thank you for every moment!

Dear Lady, "Little Did I Dream" really swings ! Once again, you've created some outstanding music. A sincere and heartfelt thanks to you, and to all those who made this music possible. I used to compare your music to that of folks like Janice Borla and Janis Siegel; but now I've drawn the educated conclusion : You are the Best jazz singer on the planet.. I call them as I see them. Thanks again, and please, keep up the excellant work. Peace Dave

Hi Connie: Welcome back to Seattle! Thoroughly enjoyed you and Pearl Django last night (March 4th) at Jazz Alley. You continue to be our favorite vocalist and all of our friends and co-workers with whom we share your music become instant fans. We have all your CDs, but my wife picked up 2 more after your set to give to her friends. Alas, you signed them both...but even more of a cherished gift to give so that we can share your music and talent. And...no, I wasn't the one in the crowd shouting "Encore!" over and over again...but we all certainly felt that way, and you graced us with 2 additional songs at the end. Can't wait for your next trip out this way. We all love you! ps. Any chance you and Mary Louise Knudson may collaborate on a future CD? - Chris & Midori

Hi Connie My boss forced me to listen to WMOT out of Murfreesboro, TN. I was surprised I like jazz. Discovering you was a bonus! WMOT played many of the songs from your Little Did I Dream CD.

I just love your music and "Gypsy" is my all time favorite CD.Thank you for the gift of your music. I would love to attend a concert in Seattle or Vancouver, BC., Canada.

Connie, I was a "student" during your visit with Joan Griffith at St. Thomas on Sept. 24. You sang a beautiful song that I vaguely recall had the word "Gypsy" in the title. I think you introduced it with a brief comment about Gypsy Boots. I don't think it was "Gypsy in my Soul." Can you recall what you sang and let me know if you have recorded it? I checked your CD playlist and did not see anything (other than "Gypsy in my Soul") with "Gypsy" in the title. Thanks.

Hi Connie. I saw you sing with Moore by Four back in the late 80's or early 90's at a Twins Fest. Probably 1990. Then saw you again with Moore by Four at Interchange Tower where I used to work in Golden Valley. I absolutely loved the sound. I am a huge Django fan, and loved you on Gypsy in my Soul and Let It Be Jazz. Fantastic sounds! Thank you for the music! I am just really getting into jazz, love Coltrane, Parker, Krall etc and have added your music to my collection. Jim

Dear Connie, How I must agree with Paul from smiling Somerset. I heard the same show on BBC on Sunday evening and your "Lullaby of the Leaves" was "our kind of music"! I see you have been to England on a private function. When are you coming back so that we all can enjoy your music...live!? We'd love to see -and hear - you. How about one of our Jazz Festivals? More, please! Tony

Hi Connie. I was listening to 'Radio 2' here in England about 5 mins ago and they played your song 'Lullaby of the Leaves' and I loved it so much I decided to look you up. That was the first song i have heard of yours and I thought it was beautiful, I look foward to listening to more of your songs. Best wishes Paul x

Connie! I love your new CD! Once again, I'm totally smitten by your smooth, delightful, subtly nuanced voice. Amazing! I was told that certain voices resonate with the hypothalamus in such way as to release endorphins---I think this is what happens when I hear you singing (although, I must admit, I'm clueless as to what a "hypothalamus" is!). PS: I tried following my wife around the house singing "Peel Me a Grape" thinking it would lead to some jazz-induced romantic encounter, but, unfortunately, it fell flat. Guess I'll leave singing to the pros!

Connie: We thoroughly enjoyed your performance at the Jazz Alley in Seattle last night (April 30th) and we were honored to have had the opportunity to chat with you briefly after your first set. And thank you again, for autographing your latest CD for us. As with all your previous CDs, we love your music and look forward to your next engagement(s) here in the Seattle area. You're a wonderful artist and performer, and wish you even greater success and recognition in the future. You cannot begin to know how happy we both are to have finally experienced your beautiful voice in person and for providing us with wonderful music. Especially exciting for Midori was your singing Lullaby of the Leaves...her favorite. Sincerely, Chris & Midori

Streaming my favorite jazz station, KKJZ out of Los Angeles, and I heard your "Peel Me a Grape," and heard that you've dedicated an entire album to the music of Dave Frishberg. Outstanding! I'm a big fan of the whole Frishberg/Blossom Dearie/Bob Dorough coterie and feel that they don't nearly get the attention they deserve.

Estimada y admirada Connie: he decidido borrar de la memoria de mi PC tu maravillosa música, por el pedido que realizaras al Blog de Carlos de que te eliminaran de sus posteos. Creo que tienes razón, pero debes saber que en nuestra modesta ciudad no tenemos forma de hacernos de esta música que tanto nos gusta, y estos Blogs nos ayudan enormemente, trayéndonos cultura y arte que siempre nos fue tan lejana. Felicitaciones por tu fina profesión y tu trabajo impecable, ojalá con el tiempo recupere tu música entráñable. Saludos desde una pequeña ciudad del interior de Argentina.

Connie, I had the opportunity to first see you perform at the San Jose Jazz festival in San Jose,California in August 2007. I knew nothing of you but your brief bio stated you were based in Minnesota, (which is where I grew up) so I elected to go to your performance. I am so glad I made that choice. I loved your performance and said to myself - a great performer from the midwest(with a sense of pride). Not only was your voice clear and beautiful ,but your stage presence was engaging and elegant. I hope to share my knowledge of you with my family and friends in Minnesota so they will have the opportunity to see you perform as well. And I hope I will have that opportunity again as well. Sincerely, Karen Ostrowski

Just heard you for the first time today on the Stockholm Sweetin' CD. I was knocked out with your singing and sense of the DJango kind of style of singing. I'm in process of moving from Singapore to New Orleans. Loved The Hot Club of Sweden and loved your perfect phrasing on the tunes of this CD. Didn't know whether or not you were Swedish or whatever. I'll be on the lookout for your other CDs. Regards, Byron Atkins

Hi Connie.I'm a guitarist and writer.I discovered you on 'Pandora'internet site singing Autumn in Kokolla.I love your voice and the setting,it reminded me of 'Open Fire 2 Guitars' an LP from 60's of Johnny Mathis accompanied by Tony Mottola,Al Caiola and Milt Hinton on bass So I tracked your Cds to CD BABY site and got the Swedish one and Gypsy.That's a great idea singing the first 16 bars in a Minor Key,along with some Barry sisters improv.(am I right?) Anyway,I'll track your other Cds now.My daughter Jo Menzer also enjoyed the music.You can hear HER on myspace doing her version of Nuages.Keep doin' it! Best wishes Geoff Menzer

Hello, I first must admit that I am a fairly new member of the "We Love Connie Evingson and Would Actually Die For Her" fan club:) A friend of mines daughter works at the Blues Alley in Seattle and sent him your new alblum which he lent to me. I have been a fan of Dan Hicks since the early 70's which led me to explore Django R. and "hot club music" over the years. Imagine my delight, just a couple of months ago, in discovering such a beautiful voice supported by such great instrumentalist playing a style of music that I have grown to love so much over these past years. I have since bought several other alblums, all of which I not just enjoy but actually cherish. Then to further my delight I cruise your website to find that you will be at Blues Alley in DC on May 8th. I have tickets and will be there at the 10:00 show. I must add that Connie Evingson is one of the few if not only singer that can actually give me goose bumps and chills in a very nice way, just listening to her voice. Many thanks for being here and may life be oh so kind to you and yours. gbart

Connie, Your vocal talent is insane!!! I was one of the few (GRR) students that were at your show in Prairie du Chien. I was extremely impressed by both your style and impressive repetoire of good old-fashioned jazz. I'm officially addicted to listening to Gypsy in My Soul. I'm sorry about the rather underwhelming turnout at your performance. I really pity the people that decided not to come! Well, the next time you swing through southwestern Wisconsin, I'll drag my friends kicking and screaming so that they can enjoy the ear candy that is your voice! Sincerely, Kyle Picha

I saw and heard you for the first time in Michigan City last night performing with the Clearwater Hot Club. I've been a fan of the Django Reinhardt style jazz with the driving rhythm guitar. Your velvety voice on "Nuages" with the inspired solos on the lead guitar and clarinet made the song ever so haunting. I immediately bought two of your discs at the break. I was a bit disapointed that the backing on "Nuages" on the disc was not the same, but it's also a great rendition. I just discovered another great vocalist this last summer at the Elkhart Jazz Fest, Rebacca Kilgore. This has been my lucky year for discovering new talent. I wish your agent could book you at Elkhart. It is one of the top jazz fests in the country, and would give you exposer to many of the loyal jazz fans in the mid west.

Connie: Sorry to say that I had not had the pleasure of hearing your music until this past week. While browsing around the jazz section of a local music shop, I noticed your latest CD release and scanned it to hear a few cuts. First impression - very nice (I'm a Diana Krall fan and enjoy the old standards you both have a knack for recreating these tunes). Then I saw your Let It Be Jazz CD and listened to it and was just blown away. Fantastic album, beautiful arrangements and your wonderful voice and style...great decision to include several "lesser known" Lennon/McCartney songs(For No One is unbelievable...Mary Louise Knutson is a terrific arranger and pianist). I bought both CDs on the spot and am now a fan of yours (my wife loves your music, too). Unfortunately this store didn't have any of your other CDs, but I'll be looking for them as well. I'm a huge smooth jazz fan and we have a decent FM radio station service the Pacific NW, however, I will chastise them for not playing your music and will encourage them to do so. I hope you will have Seattle on your schedule in the near future...maybe your agent could contact radio station KWJZ, as they promote or co-sponsor most of the jazz engagements here (Diana Krall, Etta James, Oscar Peterson, Boney James, Peter White, Chris Botti, etc.). We also have 2 great clubs: Jazz Alley and The Triple Door that your agent should look into as well as numerous formal venues (Benaroya Hall, Paramount, 5th Avenue). As you might guess...I'd like you to come to Seattle and I have no doubt that Seattle will welcome you with open arms. Looking forward to more music from you! Thanks, and the very best to you.

Hi Connie. I talked with you briefly in the parking lot at the Djangofest on Saturday. I'm the guy whose son (Tom Brosseau) often plays with Nickel Creek. Everyone in our family loves your music, especially the Peggy Lee numbers. Here's Tom's website, in case you're interested. www.tombrosseau.com/ I'd also like to send you a copy of Tom's latest CD, if you tell me where to send it. The Djangofest was a great idea. Here's hoping we see you at the next one too. Jim B.

Hi Connie, My name is Brian Mello and I'm a flamenco guitarist with Boston's "El Arte Flamenco". I'm also a soloist. I heard one of your cds at my friend, Bob Boyer's music store,"Sunset Records" andn I loved it. One of my great friend, mentor and guitar instructor who introduced me to flamenco (Sadly he passed away last year) was a jazz guitarist that played the Django Reinhardt style. He, also the father of folk singer songwriter, Tom Pacheco of Woodstock,NY had met Django when he was in France during WWII. Having learned so much about Django from Tony Pacheco, over the years , Brought back memories and I was amazed by your awesome music. Keep up the great music. Also I wanted to let you know that Bob Boyer had some of your music played at BBC radio while he was in England. Good Luck and I hop[e to one day catch one of your performances. Brian

My wife and I have enjoyed watching you blossom into a top flight jazz soloist since your days with Moore by Four. Recently I was hospitalized for 4 months and I played several of your CD's: the Peggy Lee tribute and the Some Cats Know CD. The music lifted the spirits of the nurses, nursing assistants and other patients! Your Secret of Christmas CD continues to be a favorite and we delighted many friends by giving it as a gift these past three years. Keep on singing and exploring new areas! We love the way you meld into so many different musical traditions. Michael and Eileen

Connie, Having heard and been very impressed with your "Gypsie" album I would like to mention that should you ever have thoughts of incorporating the sound of the piano into your ensemble that I be contacted. When I heard the "Samba-izing" of Nature Boy I felt a kindred spiritedness to your musical conception as I do so frequently to many such tunes in my own succesful piano career. Should the prospect of this unsolicited suggestion resonate with you at all, I can provide an extensive resume of very substantial accomplishments, too much for this brief correspondence and though this letter is on the surface self-serving, rest assured that I would not make this overture if I did not think that I would be an asset to your music. Thanks for the melodies, Rod

They are on the web; they are all jazz, no commercials, in San Mateo, CA. I'm also a fan of LeJazz Hot (HCSF).

Hey, Connie. I stumbled upon a copy of "Let It Be Jazz" in the Borders here in Albany, NY. I have to admit (never having heard of you) I hesitated, and went on-line to do some research and sample some clips. I really liked what I heard, but when I went back to look for it, it was gone! I wound up spending a weekend in Boston looking for your CD, but unable to find it anywhere. I ended up getting it from CD Universe. Anyway, I'm listening to it right now and really enjoying it. As a lifelong Beatles-fan (as well as a jazz fan) I know how hard it is to do anything new with the Fab Four's music. You did a fabulous job, and I'm looking forward to hearing your other albums. Cheers!

Dear Connie; Heard your song "Nature Boy" on KPLU radio in Tacoma, WA. I emailed the station the next day, hoping somebody would know who I was talking about, with a minimum of info. The music director (Abe Beeson) knew you were the one. Your voice knocks me out. Been a very long time since I've heard vocals as original as yours. Please let me know when you might come to Seattle to do a show, I want front row seats. Your new fan for life, Lyle

Dear Connie, I am a homemaker sitting at my computer ordering your new album "Gypsy In My Soul". Your life is so different than mine and it amazes me how much you come into my home and give me so much enjoyment. The talent to sing like you do is so special, I can live through you. I have followed you and "Moore By Four" for many years at concerts and clubs and you never cease to amaze me with your special gift of song. You are a beautiful woman, I only hope for you the best in your life. always, gayle@visi.com Shorewood, Minnesota

I heard one of your songs on the radio and really liked your voice and sense of swing. I knew I wanted to hear more and the Django-like guitar solo convinced me to buy your album "Gypsy In My Soul" immediately. I'm going to send for it from Minnehaha tomorrow morning. I know I'll enjoy it. I know looks don't really matter when it comes to having great talent but you look pretty good anyway; even better than Diana Krall! Thanks for the music.

Connie, I have just discovered you and your recordings. I am particularly delighted to learn that you not only recorded "Gypsy in My Soul," but that you made it the title song of your new album. My father, Moe Jaffe, was the lyricist; his college friend, Clay Boland, wrote the music. It is my favorite of my father's songs. I listened to your version, and I found it new and exciting. I am about to purchase a copy of the CD. Thanks and best wishes!

Connie, just got the email that you sent out about your new CD and as always will be buying one. I am here in Baghdad, Iraq and have you on my IPOD. The guys always ask who that is when I'm listening to you on my computer. Things here are a little hairy at times but with the friends I have and some good music the bad days go buy faster. Please say hi to Sandford and everyone for me. Miss you guys.. Brien

Dear Ms. Evingson, Wow! What a concert. We just returned from your concert at the Lakeville Arts Center, and it has to be one the best performances that we have attended in a very long time. I purchased your CD "Gypsy in my soul" at the concert and I am listening to it as I write, this is a CD that I would highly recommend, if this was amazon.com I would give it 5 stars. We are looking forward to more of your concerts in the future. Larry and Carol Flory

I hope Connie Evingson could please us, lovers of good music, by recording some standards like Cole Porter and Gershwin. I think she has become a reference these days just for her voice, rythm and choices she has made in her repertoire. Besides that she's gathering a lot of a people that were blasée for the good news and futhermore changing ears and hearts. So be!

I have heard of Connie in fringe ways and have always thought of her as another standard quality entertainer, but recently I have been wondering about voicework. I watched the Discovery sho Quintuplets and really liked the narration work! I was wondering if Connie also did voiceover work for any attractions at Epcot or Disney Theme parks.

Connie has a very distinctive voice and style, which makes her very enjoyable to listen to. From the zip code for minnehaha music it's located in my old neighborhood in south Minneapolis. Has Connie considered doing a CD with Lorie Line. I know their styles are quite different but I think it sound very good. John Schlesinger

Dear Connie Evingson: My friend and I saw you at the Reif Center in Grand Rapids, MN, Jan. 17, 2004, mostly because of our love and admiration for Miss Peggy Lee! We were so very impressed with your voice... and your song styling of Peggy's songs and that you wove into this concert a brief narrative history of Peggy's life also. It was a wonderful concert and tribute to this ultra fine singer and in that, it was a terrific introduction to us of your excellent voice. We are presently enjoying your CDs along with Peggy Lee's.... Thank you for the pleasurable concert on such a cold Minnesota evening. It truly warmed us up!

I couldn't think of your name at Barnes and Noble today,but found it on my station's listing. I looked you up on Amazon and then found your website. I'm certainly glad I did!! I'm now trying to decide what cd I want first! What a nice dilemma! Good luck in the future! One of your newest fans! Mike Roanoke,Va.
