Vocalist Judy Niemack has long been a well-kept secret in her homeland, as many of her releases were made for European labels like Free Lance, far too many of which were poorly distributed in the . and lapsed from print. But since she began working with the . label Blujazz, she has had much greater exposure. Her second CD for the label features his talented husband (and longtime collaborator) Jeanfrançois Prins on guitar, joined by pianist Bruce Barth, bassist Rufus Reid, and drummer Bruno Castellucci

With her tenth album as a leader, In the Sundance, vocalist Judy Niemack pays tribute to the warmth of the human spirit. Accompanied by an all-star band, she presents a set inspired by the beauty of the summer sun. From a samba arrangement of How About You, to Ivan Lins’ breezy bossa-nova, Sails ; from Chet Baker’s hit, Estate, to an intimate version of Beautiful Love in duo with bassist Rufus Reid, Judy brings fresh interpretations and jazz savvy to classic standards, French and Italian Pop songs, and originals featuring her lyrics. Judy Niemack has been one of the most underrated jazz vocalists of her generation, and this brilliant effort should awaken critics who have unjustly overlooked her consistently excellent work.

Judy Niemack (born March 11, 1954, Pasadena, California) is an American jazz vocalist. Niemack sang in a church choir from age seven. She decided on a professional career in singing at age 17, and soon after met Warne Marsh, who encouraged her to explore jazz. She studied jazz at Pasadena City College, and later at the New England Conservatory of Music and the Cleveland Institute of Music.

Vocalist Judy Niemack’s improvisation teacher Warne Marsh told her that she had to go and, once she did, she never looked back. Niemack’s experiences, and friendships created, in New York have shaped her career and life. One of the most important friendships turned out to be that of the great pianist, composer and arranger Jim McNeely. Niemack’s new recording with McNeely, New York Stories, shows the depth of their musical and personal affinity as they present pieces they arranged together over the years, and, finally, have recorded together, along with the Danish Radio Big Band.
