Laurie Antonioli

One of the finest vocalists in jazz and a proud Bay Area native, Laurie Antonioli brings fresh interpretations of Joni Mitchell’s timeless music to the SFJAZZ Center in spacious arrangements explored by a deft quintet of improvisers. As a young singer, studies with the great Nancy King in the prestigious jazz vocal program at Mt. Hood Community College in Portland stoked a fire for improvisation, and regular appearances with iconic singer Mark Murphy at his weekly gigs in Tiburon thrust Antonioli into the scene as a working professional. Since her first tour of Europe with saxophonist Pony Poindexter, she has established herself as a consummate interpreter of standards and American popular song, working with Bobby McFerrin, pianists George Cables and Richie Beirach as well as an extended relationship with tenor sax legend Joe Henderson, with whom she performed for two decades until his death in 2001. An experienced educator as well as performer, Antonioli is currently the head of the jazz vocal program at Berkeley’s Jazzschool. For this date, which aptly takes place in the Joe Henderson Lab, Antonioli will perform with her current working band, as featured on her latest album, American Dreams.
