Love your music!

Rita Espiritu

Falls Church, VA USA - April 18, 2018

Thank You! You and your band are an absolute treasure! I have been fortunate enough to have gone to about 5 or 6 of your concerts over the past 15 years. Everyone of them was a fabulous from the heart performance. I’m just home from your latest, and looking forward to the next.

David Poretti

Minneapolis, MN - November 19, 2017

I love your music and have re-discovered your appearances on A Prairie Home Companion with Garrison Keillor. In particular, I heard “Autumn in St. Paul” which you did on the show a few years ago. I would love to hear you do a rendition of “St. Paul State of Mind” by altering the lyrics of “New York State of Mind” sung originally by Billy Joel.

Hank Hofmann

Ottawa, Ontario K2A 1N2 Canada - August 29, 2017

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 Collins

Lansdale, PA United States - June 22, 2017

Hi Connie, if you ever come across Geramany we would love to host you in a wonderful historic cellar theatre in Zwingenberg, Germany – between Heidelberg and Frankfurt. Cheers

Leo Ohrem

Jugenheim, Deutschland - June 11, 2017

My cross country trip is finally a reality! I’ll be stopping in Minneapolis when you’re performing on June 7. Can hardly wait!

Ken Collins

Lansdale, PA United States - May 31, 2017

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.

Bill D

Scott Selmer

New York City, NY United States - March 11, 2017

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.

I was stunned to read yesterday’s obituary of Ross, and mentioned this sad news to several friends of mine who I have brought with me in recent years to hear you at St. Barney’s. They were equally saddened. We all want to extend our condolences.

Bob Sipkins

Plymouth, MN United States - January 28, 2017

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 FOSSE

Larry Berle

Phoenix, AZ United States - January 27, 2017

Sorry for your loss.

Hi Connie, Any January engagements in the TC? Still at the Mpls Women’s Club? You played at our wedding reception and we miss you! Mary Gallagher and Doug Dill

Mary Gallagher

St. Paul, MN USA - January 22, 2017

Was just introduced buy accidental discovery. I was searching some Diana Krall stuff. She was in our school band class under a Mr. Lowrey playing the piano. Your name was referenced and gave you a listen. I forgot how much I enjoyed jazz in school band, for me you bought the romance of jazz back.

S.Collins

Nanaimo, BC USA - January 19, 2017

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!

Alisa

Netanya, Israel - January 13, 2017

I had the good fortune to hear you via Pandora and am enchanted at your singing, phrasing and the spirit that comes through you music. I look forward to catching your show if you come out here to Portland, Oregon….

Bill Edwards

Portland, OR USA - November 25, 2016

My wife and I were delighted by your perf at Campbell Steele Gallery in Marion this past Friday (11/18/16). Somehow you managed to wow us even more thoroughly than at your also awesome show there earlier this year. Thanks for doing what you do. And for doing it so superbly and with such a fine sense of musical history.

Kim Ketelsen

Marion, IA USA - November 20, 2016

Your set at the Jungle was the perfect antidote to Election 2016. Beautiful. Thank you.

Hi Connie! I’m Rafael and i’m from Brazil. I’m a musical researcher of christmas albums… This is my lovely job… Please, by the love of Lord, sell your christmas album in Google Play Music, so, i can buy it… Itunes is not available to my country, unfortunately… But Google Play Music are available to my country… Please, make me happy, putting a smile in my face now!!! It’s my dream hear the christmas songs that i love in your angelical voice… Please, do my dream happens!!! Thanks in advance and i’ll wait for your answer, ok? Best regards, Rafael

Rafael

Brazil - October 24, 2016

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?

Gary Hachtel

Boulder, CO USA - September 29, 2016

Aloha Connie! Just want to thank GOD & you for the great gift he has given you and the great gift you have given the world with your awesome voice!! “Your Natural Talent”. First heard you threw my Pandora station! !!Thank you again!! -eve

Eve Pena

Connie, I discovered your music some time ago. I think you have the greatest voice!! Please continue to produce such fantastic work. Your pictures on your website are mesmerizing.

Michael Marness

OK USA - August 23, 2016

Live in in the LA area and would love to see you live. Hope if you’re ever in town you’ll let your fans know.

Ted Anderson

USA - August 2, 2016

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.

Donald Giroux

Ham Lake, MN USA - July 22, 2016

Would love to know if you’re singing anywhere in the Twin Cities in August? I will have out-of-country visitors who I know will love you!

Colleen Slater

USA - July 21, 2016

I live in a famous Florida Golf Community but it also has many professional places in wish to perform. If you decide to perform here, I can pick you up in my Golf cart. Welcome (hopefully)to The Villages, Florida.

Peter M Brooks

The Villages, FL USA - June 25, 2016

I’m very picky with my ‘likes’..! But having only just discovered you a few months ago (gypsy in my soul) I find that I adore you! Night And Day, Caravan.. You have a stunningly beautiful voice, thank-you for sharing it xx

Charlie

Portland, UK - June 9, 2016

Dear Connie: a favorite is Diana Krall’s Let’s Face the Music and Dance; she has been here to Blossom Music Center. I also enjoyed a favorite concert here by Karen Phillip, Lani Hall, and Brasil 66. I have a new favorite. Please come, though we may prefer intimate Nighttown. Or I’ll visit daughter-in-law’s brother there. Or both. My Best Wishes, Bing

Bingham Blossom

Chagrin Falls, OH USA - May 8, 2016

Thank you for sharing your musical gifts with us at Campbell Steele Gallery in Marion. I’d happily anticipated your exceptional voice, your impeccable phrasing and strong playing from your band — and you more than met those expectations. What I hadn’t reckoned on was coming to realize how you’re helping to keep so many wonderful, timeless songs alive and vibrant. I can’t wait to experience you performing live again one day soon.

Kim Ketelsen

Marion, IA USA - April 30, 2016

Hi Connie, You’re a bit of an inspiration to my quartet back here in Virgina. We’re wondering if you could share your lyrics to “Nuages.” BTW, I play chromatic harmonica. On occasions when Toots is unavailable, I’m your man. ;o) Meanwhile, good luck, best regards, and thanks for your work. __Jack

Jack Fretwell

Reston, VA USA - April 24, 2016

Last night’s concert was truly fabulous. And you have gathered a super group of talented musicians to join you. It is such a delight to sit in the audience at the Jungle and just “drink” in your music. Thank you. And how about calling it “CONNIE’S HOT CLUB JAZZ”

Kristine Aasheim

Wayzata, MN USA - April 18, 2016

Connie, For the name of your group, how about Les Étoiles du Nord, a plural take on the state motto? A rough translation as The Stars of the North would pretty accurately describe you guys! Jim H

Jim Hewitt

Inver Grove Heights, MN USA - April 18, 2016

Whenever my wife and I visit St Paul/Minneapolis, we always end up on Grand Ave. There is a neat dress shop in an old house run by a person from eastern Europe on Grand, between Chatsworth and Milton, (north side of street) you might take a look. Always enjoy your music on Pandora!

Howard Partch

Anacortes, WA USA - March 23, 2016

I’ve loved your music for years, and can’t wait for more! Please come sing in Hawaii for your fans out here! I soooo wish your music was on Tidal HiDefinition streaming – it would sound even more amazing! Aloha

Peter Michaud

Hilo, HI USA - January 20, 2016

Found you on Amazon Prime Music. Wow, you are great! I enjoy your music a lot. Your rendition of “Killing me softly” is the best I have ever heard, haunting and lovely. Thank you for the work you put into your craft, it bring me a lot of joy.

Kenneth Smith

Jenison, MI USA - January 5, 2016

Connie … I would like to see if it would be possible to bring you and your band in for a performance during the winter/spring of 2016. I’ll look forward to hearing from you. Thanks … Craig

Craig Campbell

Marion, IA USA - December 8, 2015

ridiculously talented and so pretty. wow, unbeatable combination! Have you on my phone, so listening to your great tracks every day , never tire. So many good singers make such poor choices with songs. But you have such good taste and the musicians you work with are superb. I am a portrait painter and would love tp paint your portrait. and see you perform live. I may ask you when i have finished the book i’m working on next summer, Hoping to come to the States after that With Admiration Claude

Joe Stumpf, III

St. Paul, MN USA - September 23, 2015

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!

Anatol

Phoenix, AZ USA - September 10, 2015

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.”

Andy Moore

Brookline, MA USA - September 8, 2015

Yoyoyoyo Connie!! :o)

Jocko

USA - September 4, 2015

Congratulations on such a wonderful and prominent singing career! We met eons ago when I worked with Robert Whitman and we later spoke briefly on the phone about your work with David Hamilton. Take care!

Scott Lawrence

Duluth, MN USA - August 8, 2015

Connie, My husband and I have been fans for years. Today we were taking a long drive home and heard the song, I Shall be Released, by Bob Dylan. Arriving home, I looked up versions by the Tremeloes, The Band, etc. We concluded no one has nailed this emotional, moving song. We think you are the one to record it! Lisa

Lisa

Minneapolis, MN USA - July 12, 2015

I just want to say I am enjoying your voice and your interpretation. Your arrangements are great! Are they available? my group would love to cover some of your songs. Please keep doing what you’re doing! Thanks, Doug

Doug Elvin

Milton, ON CA - June 13, 2015

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…

Anatol Prehar

Phoenix, AZ USA - June 10, 2015

Connie, I remember you when we were students at Minnesota Dance Theatre! How wonderful that you’ve blossomed as a singer since those days. Sincere admiration and *respect* for your range and repertoire! You should totally book some gigs in Wine Country here in Sonoma County. I guarantee that the audience here would love you. All the best, Chris

Chris Lyman

Santa Rosa, CA USA - June 8, 2015

Pandora brought a great gift the other day, Gypsy in my Soul, since then I can not stop hearing. Great singer, great band, great choice of songs. A Master Piece.

Joe Stumpf

St. Paul, MN USA - May 8, 2015

I just unboxed a CD of Jazz Arts Big Band Bob Anderson gave me many years ago. How far you have come! I’ve been enjoying your superb voice for a few years and now know why you sounded so familiar to me. I grew up hearing Bonnie Herman do studio work and know pure excellence when I hear it…. Thank you for sharing your gift with the world! Are you coming to Chicago anytime soon? I would love to see you perform. If not, I might just come to Mpls. Thanks! Dave Severson

David Severson

Morton Grove, IL USA - April 28, 2015

William Griffin

Gainesville, GA USA - March 28, 2015

I discovered you on Pandora, and from there I discovered that you are in the Twin Cities, as am I. How cool is that?! I have signed up for your event mailings, and I am looking forward to hearing more of you. 🙂

Kirin Loomis

USA - March 23, 2015

We used to live in Mpls. and first heard you at the old Sophie’s where you mistakenly and happy birthday to my hubby. We are big fans,but live in FL now.

Rhinebeck, NY USA - December 24, 2014

Great music with superb style. Wish I had learned of Connie’s music long ago. Wish I was back in MN so I could see her perform live. Hopefully she’ll be out in VA one day in not too distant future. Please keep the wonderful music coming out – great for days with sound up and top down. – Mike

Michael W. Harris

I just discovered this wonderful artist and her wide variety of musical friends. I’ve spent the last 2 nights listening to everything I can. ( I now know what I want for Christmas. ) If ever in the Carolina’s performing … I’m there with a dozen friends in tow.

E. Cooper Mattocks

Sanford, NC USA - November 25, 2014

Hi Connie. Had an interesting dream with the music channel on. Woke up and your song “Gypsy in my soul” was playing. Found this site, and just wanted to say hi. Hi ! Sersh (South Africa)

Sershen Naidoo

Durban, KZN South Africa - October 13, 2014

Hi Connie, We have been enjoying all your CD’s. Wish we could come back up soon for another performance. I am excited to see your new CD coming out next week. Hopefully you come to Florida soon to perform. Our Best, MaryElla and Tim

MaryElla and Tom

Orlando, FL USA - September 24, 2014

“Discovered” you about a year ago. Your voice is amazing; the music cool and I hope you get to the DFW area for live performance — soon.

Larry

USA - August 15, 2014

Hi Connie: You and your trio at last night’s performance in Virgina, MN were OUTSTANDING. We have most of your CDs in our library. Because you’re a Hibbing native, we don’t understand why the home you grew up in isn’t featured among local sites to see, like Bob Dylan’s boyhood home and our richest gem, the Hibbing high school. Many thanks for two hours of great entertainment. Joe and Sue

Joe & Sue Gnoza

Hibbing, USA - June 28, 2014

What is on your schedule for July?

MaryElla Banks

Please send us your upcoming schedule … we would love to fly up to see you perform. just bought 2 cds and would love to see you live

MaryElla Banks

Orlando, FL USA - May 11, 2014

Connie – I listen a lot to Jazz24 and hear you on it. I love your music. Unfortunately, there is no imminent prospect of my making it to Minnesota to hear you live so Jazz24 will be the best I can do for now. If ever you tour in the UK though, please let me know – I will come to see you for sure!

David Gorsuch

Marlow, Buckinghamshire UK - March 16, 2014

I really enjoyed your tribute to Peggy Lee. I will be seeing you live tonight.

Mark Flaten

Wayzata, MN USA - March 15, 2014

Just sent you an email, then discovered your Guestbook. I just love Sweet Happy Life. It always boosts my mood and makes me smile. You have a special way of interpreting standards. Will you ever come to Hawaii or Hilo, Hawaii?

Gloria Kobayashi

Hilo, HI USA - February 17, 2014

I met you many years ago at a little club in St. Paul and bought a couple of CDs. There are about 900 songs in my jazz genre on my iPod, and you have come circling around year after year. Tonight I’m inspired to tell you how much I love your singing — it’s clear and moving, radiant. Never give up. You have the gift, a child could see that. Thank you for filling my house with your sweet voice!

David Bourne

Portland, ME USA - November 20, 2013

Thank you Connie for your wonderful vocals with Parisota Hot Club at our wedding reception at Sweeneys on October 4th. Everyone raved about the music and you in particular. My 3 brothers fell in love with you! We felt the music was a gift to our guests. Thank you and looking forward to hearing you sing again at the Mpls Womens Club on December 4th, when we won’t be quite so distracted. Mary and Doug.

Mary Gallagher

USA - November 15, 2013

OMG!Susan Stamberg was right. After the NPR interview and learning you grew up listening to L,H,&R,I ordered Sweet Happy Life and Gypsy In My Soul. Every word clear. Every note pure. Great musicians too. Wife very suspicious. Why would a 75-year-old house husband have the stereo full blast and be dancing with a broom when she gets home from work, house a mess and dinner not on the table? Hmm.

Mark Crocker

Houston, TX USA - October 19, 2013

Love your music. Please come to Boston!

George Montgomery

Andover, MA USA - September 23, 2013

Hi Connie! I found out about you when KPLU-FM 88.5 played “Until”. I’m so glad to have discovered you! If you ever make it to Seattle, maybe Dimitriou’s Jazz Alley (fabulous venue) we’ll be there. Best Wishes for continued success, Kat

Kat

Puyallup, WA USA - September 8, 2013

Connie, we just got your CD, and what was going to be listening to one song over coffee turned into song after song. Your voice is captivating, your sidemen perfection. Your tonality is spot on, your timing as well, and you step away from the melody just enough to make it fun without losing the listener. Thank you, thank you. Tana Wedum

Tana

Broomfield, CO USA - August 21, 2013

I just heard you for the first time ever and I am in LOVE! I was listening to a station that I created on Pandora and you came on. I had to stop what I was doing and see who this was singing. You have an absolutely beautiful voice and you now have a new fan.

Jeremy Lansing

Memphis, TN USA - August 20, 2013

I was just listening to my Madeleine Peyroux station on Pandora when I heard your Gypsy in My Soul…you are great! Any chance you will be in the LA area anytime soon? Love your voice and your music.

Ross Williams

Sherman Oaks, CA USA - August 16, 2013

Your latest CD just arrived, very nice indeed. Such a wonderful voice and wonderful song selections. Thank you. I hope your life goes well.

Chris and Doug

Mill Valley, CA USA - August 4, 2013

Heard you for the first time on NPR. Would love to buy your CDs but everywhere I turn seems to be “temporarily out of stock.” What gives?

Aggie

Chicago, IL USA - August 2, 2013

Hi Connie, Great job on the NPR interview. Susan Stamberg starts her day with your wonderful music and joins your fans having sweet happy days. We’ll see you next time you make it up to Seattle.

Walt Wilson

Normandy Park, WA USA - July 29, 2013

Hi Connie; please come on out to Carmel and perform at the Sunset Center. Beautiful Venue and you will pack the house!

Pete

Pacific Grove, CA USA - July 29, 2013

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

Thomas Jacobsen

New Orleans, LA USA - July 28, 2013

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.

Robert Ratliff

Buena Park, CA USA - July 28, 2013

I heard you on Minnesota Public Radio, this morning. Very impressed with your voice. Delighted to hear you are from Hibbing, MN. Hope to see you perform live in the near future; in the meantime, planning to acquire some of your recordings. Thanks for sharing your gift.

Deanna Ellestad

Knife River, MN USA - July 28, 2013

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.

Just heard “Peel Me A Grape ” on KCSM Jazz 91-it’s the first time I have heard you – what a solid track! You are one hell of an artist! (Since I am a vocal “snob” that’s a true compliment!) Please come to the SF Bay Area soon- perhaps Feinstein’s at the Nikko?

What a line up, we’ve been long time fans of Sachal,Feinstein & Wynton, then to have you added to the mix? It makes the heart pound. The Allen Room is a grea intimate venue, perfect for you. I’ll alert Vic & Diane, though i believe they have a subscription or are on the J.A.L.C. mailing list. Have a blast, I know this is going to be a wonderful show, like i said…AHHH Connie.

Trelew, Chubut Argentina - March 8, 2013

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.

Joe Cole

Weatherford, TX USA - March 2, 2013

Hi Connie, I’ve enjoyed your CD of Dave Frishberg’s songs for the last year or so and have just downloaded ‘Sweet Happy Life’ from UK Amazon. Wonderful! I’ve listened to it at least five times through in the last three days and several of your recordings of those songs have become the definitive performances for me. 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.

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 !

Stuart Campbell

Bloomington, MN USA - April 13, 2012

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!

Deb Perry

Chaska, MN USA - March 23, 2012

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.

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

Greetings Connie, For some reason artists with great voices are hard to find. In order to find these artists one must look high and low…I’m glad I found your voice. Keep on singing for all of us who enjoy good music. Cheers, Brian Graening Tulsa, OK

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 found myself humming the songs constantly. Finally I bought your CD and it’s become my favorite! You GO girl! Pam Miller Nashville TN

I first heard a review of your “Gypsy in my Soul” album on NPR just as it came out and was delighted to see you at the Jazz alley in Seattle this year. 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, WMOT in Nashville is playing I Can’t Take You Nowhere. I rarely buy CDs just because I heard a cut on the radio, but I’m going to Amazon right now and get Little Did I Dream. Great job. Kudos to all. It swings like crazy. Bob Mater

How exciting to see that you’ll be in Omaha this week and that I’ll have the chance to see you closer to home and sooner than going to Minnesota in late August/early September. I’ve acquired all your recordings but the latest which is in the mail as I write. I very much enjoy your style and am excited to see you live. Very much looking forward to Thursday in Omaha…

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

Connie: Saw you with Pearl Django on Whidbey Island – a lucky break to find a new(to me) and superb vocalist. We went to hear Pearl Django and had the immense pleasure of hearing YOU. Bought your new Swedish CD and believe that you out-scatted the great Ella on your interpretation of It’s Alright With Me. Your harmony with the guitar was amazing! Come back to the Island SOON!

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
