FEATURING: tracey whitney!

Bio: A former “Raelette” with the legendary Ray Charles, L.A. native Tracey Whitney began performing with The Whitney Family at age 11. After touring with Ray, she spent five years singing solo in Japan before returning to her roots in Los Angeles. Since relocating to Albuquerque in 2012, she’s been thrilling audiences throughout the city with her unique brand of classic jazz and sophisticated soul in some of the city’s most notable venues, including a residency with her show, The Art of Jazz - featuring Sid Fendley on the keyboards, Rodney Bowe on bass and Wayne Johnson on drums - in the Hotel Andaluz’s Casablanca Room, which was crowned “The Best Place for Jazz” in Albuquerque the Magazine. She’s also performed in concert for the Santa Fe Bandstand, St John’s College Music on the Hill, Route 66 Summerfest, the New Mexico Jazz Workshop’s Women's Voices and Ladies Sing the Blues series at the Albuquerque Museum, as well as her Nancy Wilson tribute “Guess Who I Saw Today” at both the African American Performing Arts Center and the Outpost Performance Space. Tracey has opened concerts for contemporary jazz stars Nathan East, Marc Antoine, Euge Groove, Will Donato, Darren Rahn and Julian Vaughn. Her third CD “Live at the Outpost Performance Space” awarded her a New Mexico Music Awards nominee for “Best Vocal Performance.”

 

Although Covid-19 brought live music to a screeching halt in 2020, the Art of Jazz did have some highlights, including performing for Mayor Tim Keller’s State of the City address, the New Mexico Jazz Workshops Staying With the Beat virtual series, Albuquerque Culture & Arts department’s Biopark Botanic Gardens virtual series, the New Mexico Philharmonic’s New York Lights gala, and 2021 has blessed the band with performances for the Old Town Summer Music Series, the City of Albuquerque’s Summerfest, and Tracey was featured in the New Mexico Jazz Workshop’s Women’s Voice’s concert at the Albuquerque Museum.
