A jazz-oriented singer with a warm, inviting voice, Sherri has established herself as a “less-is-more” vocalist in the gently swinging style of Chet Baker, Helen Merrill, or Julie London. Â Her favored repertoire leans heavily
towards wrongfully neglected standards, which she imbues with “flourish- free readings that are pure, strong, and potent.” (Christopher Loudon, JazzTimes, 2013).
She has recorded for Brownstone, starting with 1994’s Twilight World and Dreamsville in 1997. Â In 2006 Sherri released The Sky Could Send You followed in 2013 by Lovely Days, both on the Blue House/Pacific Coast Jazz label. Phil Woods, Chris Potter, Lew Soloff, Mark Soskin and Danny Gottlieb are among the supporting artists represented on these recordings. She has forged a creative partnership with bassist Harvie S, who played on and produced three of these cds. Lovely Days, her most recent outing, is a duo project with the brilliant but little documented pianist Bliss Rodriguez.
