Linda Lee Michelet is a local, torchy, saloon-style singer who brings a touch of class to her jazz renderings via both her song stylings and her elegant work garb…. Fasten your seatbelt. You won’t believe what comes out of her mouth and what flows from her heart & soul.
Linda was always enjoyable, always personable, and always a solid musician!
Yesterday—Sunday—I was thrilled to hear the Linda Lee Michelet “Burt Bacharach Tribute” concert—with about 60 others packed into Ivories… I said thrilled, and I meant it…. This was one of the most professional performances I’ve experienced at Ivories, and brought back memories of the great songs of Hal David. Horn solos by Pete Peterson on sax, and Thomas Barber on trumpet, added a jazzy sheen to the sound, and left us wanting more. AND we’re gonna get more, ‘cause Linda is back for Valent…
Having written and or produced for some great Portland singers and musicians — including Michael Allen Harrison, Curtis Salgado, Shirley Nanette, Julie Ann Johnson, and Ellen Whyte — I think you are in the same league. I am very picky when it comes to vocalists, but my ‘sista’, as they say in the hood “Girl, you can sang” (and I do mean SANG) … Just keep believing in your dreams — sometimes they really do come true.
Michelet brings the vintage tunes to life!
Linda Lee takes her listeners on a musical journey rediscovering some of the legendary female singers of American Jazz… She is “Portland’s own honey-voiced siren.”
Thanks Rendezvous for a phenomenal time!
Michelet dives into the ’50s and ’60s with a great sense of melody on this small big band disc. She takes the tunes of three great melodicists, Peggy Lee, Nancy Wilson and Anita O’Day, and lovingly recreates them, keeping the tunes much as they were recorded originally, but with a tight, smaller band…. Michelet’s buoyant voice is easy on the ears. Her delivery is warm, inviting and true to the melodies.
The testament to a great performer is getting the music off the stage and to the people. Linda does just that!
Thank you so much for coming and performing at the First Citizen Award Banquet. You brought an amazing amount of energy to the event, and were so easy to work with. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
