Ann Mack

We are fortunate to have with us Ann Mack, who is a superb Jazz Singer, and a true Jazz Legend.  Ann has performed with artists such as Blue Mitchell, Teddy Edwards, Eddie “Cleanhead” Vinson, George Bohanon, Clora Bryant, and Ray Brown to name a few.

A native of Cleveland Ohio, Ann is an actress, story teller, portrait painter and poet. She was carefully chosen by saxophonist Teddy Edwards to stand in for Ella Fitzgerald when Ella was unable to make an appearance with his band with Jazz At The Philharmonic.

Ann Mack’s unbridled charisma, vast range and instinctively ability to caress each lyric, allows her to interpret the great American songbook. Her gentle whispers often give way to rousing crescendos, as she offers mesmerized audiences, everything in between. Ms. Mack has toured locally and abroad. She is a dramatic performer she has a sound reminiscent of Sarah Vaughan.  While displaying a solid work ethic, Ann continues to hone her craft. In short, Ann Mack is truly an extraordinary artist who deserves wider recognition as well as ample opportunities to perform, tour and record. Ann Mack’s renditions of standards are a testament to her understanding of the music.

Ann is available for booking through Savanna Jazz Agency.
