Kitty Margolis is widely recognized as one of the most innovative and inspired singers in jazz today. Her imaginative improvisations, dynamism, and inventive scat have redefined the art of jazz vocals. Jazz Times has praised her "visionary approach to melody and rhythm," and noted New York writer Stanley Crouch observes, “Kitty Margolis is an original who has made the heritage of all the great jazz singers her own. Beyond her virtuoso technique, she has an epic feeling, a willful breadth of emotion that is artfully focused on the details of life.

When it comes to catching a performance by the charismatic jazz singer Kitty Margolis, citizens of the European Union have many more opportunities than residents of her hometown. After concentrating her energies away from Bay Area bandstands in recent years, the globetrotting Margolis makes her debut at Yoshi’s San Francisco, the West Coast’s premiere jazz venue, on June 24. The occasion celebrates a happy reunion with one of Margolis’ favorite musical co-conspirators, New York City drum star Allison Miller, a supremely swinging musician who possesses a rare combination of power, finesse and taste.

Ever since their paths intersected at Australia’s Perth International Arts Festival, Margolis and Miller have sought out opportunities to work together, forging a combustible creative relationship first documented stunningly on Margolis’s acclaimed 2004 album “Heart & Soul: Live in San Francisco.”

Also joining Kitty are bassist John Shifflett and the versatile pianist Murray Low.
