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 !

We came to see you last night at the Dakota and loved your show! We were commenting that the first time we went to the Dakota (when it was still at Bandana Square, many years ago), we also saw you...with Moore by Four! Thanks for keeping all of that wonderful music alive and well!

Thanks to a neighbor, I discovered your music this morning with the Hot Club of Sweden cd. Having just seen Midnight in Paris, your music was the perfect dessert. Please come to Boston. I'd love to see you. In the meantime, there are a lot of your cds to discover. Christmas comes early this year.

Connie, Bob and I attended the Womens Club Wed night. The intimate room and incredible architecture was the perfect setting for your performance. Bob has been a Jazz Musician and band leader for many years and he says your combination of personality,style,silky voice,and drop dead looks is unique. I would go a little farther, but, I don't want you to get a big head. Enjoy your travels and save me a seat at your next visit to the club. George

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

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

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

Hi Connie, I was listening to the Jazz Radio on Rhapsody when your song, "Got To Get You Into My Life" came up and I was immediately smitten. Your smooth and clear voice captured my attention and I googled your name right away. To my delight, you are based in Minneapolis where I live! I plan to go to Dakota tomorrow to listen to you live. I am so looking forward to it! -Lydia

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

While there is no doubt your voice is exceptional I also very much liked your taste in the arrangements and interpretations and the instrumental solos on those Lennon/McCartney songs. The album on the whole is simply brilliant. Keep singing - you make the world a better place!

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, 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

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.

Connie – I heard ‘Lullaby of the Leaves’ on KCSM on the West Coast, and I immediately ordered the CD. It is a world class recording, and there is nothing else out there quite like it. I have most of your French lyrics to ‘Avril à Paris’, but not all. J'admets à pleurer un peu. Rad Randall

Connie: Today I'm sending you a check for a" Gypsy in my Soul" cd. I hear your singing on the local college station KCSM (91.1 FM) . They are on the web; they are all jazz, no commercials, in San Mateo, CA. I'm also a fan of LeJazz Hot (HCSF). If I could see you in a gig with that group (or on a CD) I'd be in heaven, as would many other afficianados.

Hi, Connie, My wife, daughter and I heard you at the Dakota September 23 and you were out of this world! We attended a concert at Iowa State University in Ames, Ia in early September by The Hot Club of San Francisco. Also outstanding. I am going to contact Iowa State University and request them try to book you and the Clearwater ot Club for their Fine Arts Series for the fall 2006-spring 2007 series. I hope it can be done! You are as talented as any nationally known jazz singer I have ever heard. Would appreciate knowing future appearances in the Twin Cities area.

Hi Connie, I am trying to hook up as many of my fellow russians, playing your cd on my parties. Your voice is perfect for gypsy-derived musical styles - flamenco, fado or russian classical romance.I lived with your cd the whole year - drove, ate, walked and slept with that...Look forward to new cds, and thank you so much!

Last week some lout smashed out the window to my car and stole my car stereo. I was upset. Then I realized that in the CD player was your Tribute to Peggy Lee. Now I'm really upset. A window and a stereo can be replaced but your voice is "PRICELESS"!!!!! I hope the lout has the good taste to keep the CD when he pawns my stereo!

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!

Just a short note to tell you how much my wife and I enjoyed your concert in Sioux Falls on the 18th of March. It was well worth the trudge through the snow. We hope to see you again soon.

Although your pianist and reed player were certainly supportive, if you would have performed acappela, I would have still loved it. I wish you the best in your career.

Bought a couple of your CD's, and your "Gypsy In My Soul" CD is nothing short of superb. My wife, who heretofor didn't really care for jazz, loves it. She'll even put it on before the usual fare of country music! (Thank you!) At any rate, I think its criminal your name is not a household word. We'll do our best to remedy that!

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

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.

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.

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!

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, although I haven't known you long from what I've heard and read I think you're an amazing woman, and incredibly beautiful. I'm a Live Sound student at Musictech College and had the pleasure of mixing for you last week during your visit. I didn't get a chance to talk with and I wanted to tell you that if you ever have a need for a good sound engineer I'd love to work with you. Best regards Steve

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! Thanks again, Barb Koivisto, Debra Leppanen Rosemount, MN

Connie does such a great rendition of "Can't Buy Me Love" on her Let It Be Jazz CD. I don't recall hearing about her singing with The Toronto Symphony...but I would love to see her live, so Connie, if you EVER play Toronto (from a small club to a huge soft seater) I am so there!

Dear Connie I just heard your wonderful voice about 11:30 last night on my local PBS jazz show. It was so good it woke me 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.

I am a musician and somewhat of a collector of Beatles related items and music and Connie's 'Let It Be Jazz' has become one of my favorite CDs. I just ordered 'Some Cats Know'. I hope she comes out with a DVD or performs locally so I can see her live.

I was re-introduced to your wonderful musical stylings at Unity Church today and plan to catch you soon at a future gig. I spoke to you briefly after the service. You have a warm, shy side that I resonated with and found very refreshing. I'm going to pick up your Beatles CD. Thanks for a very special treat today, Connie!

Dear Connie... Your enchanting beauty and fascinating voice make listening to you a very very sensual experience... the kind of experience that leads Jazz far beyound the bondaries of music and make you feel in some smoky 40¥s night club. Beijos R.
