Lila Ammons Jazz Group

  • Como Lakeside Pavilion 1360 Lexington Parkway North Saint Paul, MN, 55103 United States (map)

Lila Ammons is a versatile and engaging singer who has forged a

path in music that honors tradition and her own expressive impulses.

Beginning her vocal career in opera houses and concert halls, she

later returned to her roots in jazz and the classic blues tradition. For

the past several years she has gained popular and critical acclaim

touring Europe, Great Britain and Brazil with German pianist Axel

Zwingenberger, and as feature vocalist with the ABC&D of Boogie

Woogie Quartet with Zwingenberger and Charlie Watts, singing classic

blues, boogie boogie and jazz. For the past two years, Ammons has

primarily remained Stateside to focus on her upcoming jazz CD

project, “Genealogy” - A celebration of the heritage of jazz and her

own family heritage. The Lila Ammons Jazz Group is currently

performing in her home-base in the Twin Cities. Through recordings

and live performances alike, Ammons continues to attract new

audiences with her nuanced vocal jazz narratives, a respect for jazz

idioms, traditional blues and an unpredictability that delights.
