Rebecca Kilgore, renowned for her swinging melodic interpretation of music familiar and obscure from the Great American Songbook, has been delighting listeners not only with her many recordings but her ebullient live performances.
Her fans include Terry Gross, Bucky Pizzarelli, Michael Feinstein, Harry Allen, Dave Frishberg, Dan Barrett, and John Sheridan. Tender or hilarious, her singing always honors the song.
She has over 50 recordings to her credit (most thanks to the Arbors Records label) and over 1,000 songs in her repertoire (and counting). Her most recent recording is with German pianist/arranger Bernd Lhotzky with whom she tours in Germany.
Other recordings include collaborations with Nicki Parrott, Dan Barrett, Dave Frishberg, Harry Allen, John Sheridan, Paolo Alderighi, Eddie Erickson, Hal Smith, Lyle Ritz, John Pizzarelli, Bucky Pizzarelli, Duke Heitger, Randy Porter, and James Mason.
Originally from Massachusetts, she’s resided in Oregon since 1980 but keeps busy touring the US, Europe, and performing on jazz cruises.
