About Sultry Divas: The Music of Nancy Wilson & Peggy Lee w/ Connie Evingson & Ginger Commodore

Moore By Four chums Ginger Commodore and Connie Evingson sing a Valentine’s selection of songs from the Nancy Wilson and Peggy Lee Songbooks.  Jazz and pop standards from the Great American Songbook, blues and ballads –- what could be more romantic?

One of the Twin Cities’ favorite vocalists, Connie Evingson can swing the standards with the best of them. She can hold her own with a Beatles book. And she’s perfect in a hot club/gypsy jazz setting. She has recorded all of these projects and more, and her newest, Sweet Happy Life, finds her immersed in Brazilian bossa nova and samba, including “The Girl from Ipanema”, “Agua de Beber”, “Meditation” and others. Sweet Happy Life reached #10 on the Jazzweek radio chart and Top Ten in more than 25 markets in the U.S. and Canada.

“Connie Evingson takes the bossa bull by the horns and has produced a true masterpiece” - C. Michael Bailey, All About Jazz

A member of the Midwest music scene for many years, Ginger Commodore is a regular on the Dakota stage. Classically trained, gospel influenced, and jazz inspired, her musical foundation is a true amalgam of styles presented with her own unique delivery. Ginger’s early background was gospel – she honed her skills in church and in the Grammy Award-winning group the Sounds of Blackness. Then came Moore by Four, with the jazzy, gospel-infused vocal arrangements that gained international acclaim. Now she brings her talent and experience to her own group, GCQ.

“Ginger possesses some of the sweetest and most clarion pipes in town.” -Britt Robson, City Pages
