Yvette Norwood-Tiger, international jazz vocalist and recording artist, songwriter, vocal coach, Recording Academy (GRAMMY) recording and voting member, and founder/director of the Palm Beach International Jazz Festival (www.pbijf.org), is a Detroit, Michigan native who hails from a family of musicians, including a father who played guitar and a mother who played drums. Her CDs, A’LA ELLA! and whY NoT… Love, Peace, Joy, Jazz feature music from great composers such as Cole Porter, Duke Ellington, and the Gershwins. Yvette’s newly released CD, LOVE IS, is a wonderful compilation of great jazz standards and original songs and music with some of the tunes celebrating the works of musical geniuses John Coltrane and Duke Ellington. Yvette performs with vocally clean and pure interpretations of the great American Songbook while emphasizing intonation and storytelling. Her vocal styling and texture are often compared to that of Ella Fitzgerald and Billie Holiday. In addition to traditional jazz, her repertoire includes gospel, bebop, Latin jazz, classic songs from popular music, and arias of the great composers such as Puccini. She also performs songs in other languages which include French, Italian, Portuguese, Xhosa, and Spanish. Her mission in music is to uplift, inspire, and heal the heart, mind, and spirit of the listener.
