Carmen Lundy

“Fade To Black,” the 16th album from the multi-talented and multi-faceted Grammy-nominated jazz vocalist Carmen Lundy, is a stunning and provocative song cycle created during the turbulent and often isolating times of the Covid-19 pandemic. Featuring 11 tracks all written by Carmen, “Fade To Black” explores such themes as the rethinking of our personal values, loss, a woman’s right to vote and choice, the invasive culture of modern technology, commitment - both to oneself and to one’s partner, and police brutality.

Carmen Lundy is a beguiling vocalist. In a world of pretenders, she’s a genuine jazz singer… not retro, but the real deal.” –New Yorker Magazine 

Ms. Lundy, has accomplished the near impossible for a jazz singer by maintaining a solidly, successful, three-decade career while focusing largely on original, self-penned material.” –JazzTimes

Among her other awards and recognitions, Carmen was honored with the 2016 Lifetime Achievement Award in Jazz by “Black Women In Jazz and The Arts.” 

Especially rewarding to Ms. Lundy was the proclamation establishing January 25 as Carmen Lundy Day, along with receiving the keys to the City of Miami!

Carmen has all the prerequisites: a multi-octave range, gorgeous honey-toned voice, and considerable songwriting skills that place her in the lineage of a Betty Carter.” –Manchester News UK 

Carmen Lundy is one of the more dynamic vocal presences on the current scene, she is absolutely compelling. –Downbeat Critics Poll

“In a word... Carmen Lundy is unforgettable.” –All About Jazz

Her quartet is something very, very special!

 

The performance of Carmen Lundy presented in collaboration with The Ebony Repertory Theatre and The Jazz Bakery Performance Space is supported by Chamber Music America’s Presenter Consortium for Jazz program, funded through the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation.
