Welcome to the official website for the Internationally Acclaimed Jazz Vocal Group

New York Voices

Poke around.  We are beginning to see signs of life out in the live and in person performance world, and that is putting a new hop and hope in our step.  Shows are getting booked and projects are percolating.  Please check in with our calendar to see if we’ll be in your neighborhood.  We look forward to seeing you, connecting with you and appreciating anew a world that has a lot of music to give.

The 2024 Ella Fitzgerald Jazz Vocal Competition

New York Voices are thrilled to be judging and performing at the annual singingextravaganza.  All eligible singers should read the brief and submit your heart out. Whether you’re looking to take the high honor, receive positive feedback or make a bunch of new friends, this exercise asks you to look deep into your creative ideas and intuition and show us who you are.  We encourage you to try, tell your friends, and let’s have some fun.  See you in Washington DC at Blues Alley!!!




We’re rebooting the New York Voices Jazz Festival

We’re looking for high schools and colleges to join us at Niles North High School on March 16, 2024 to participate in an instructive learning event where you’re jazz choir will perform for New York Voices and you’ll receive a clinic directly after.  You’ll hear wonderful music throughout the day with a final performance by New York Voices!!!  Opening the concert will be our host high school jazz ensemble and a sweet short set from Kim Nazarian.  Don’t miss your chance to participate in this non-competitive event where the vibe is positive, instructive and fun.

Check out our latest release Reminiscing in Tempo

Threading the ages, New York Voices weaves their vocal arranging and elegant point of view on melody, harmony and shape through composers they admire on their latest outing.  Ellington, Corea, Brubeck, Hersch, Porter, Lennon and McCartney, Lins and Cuba’s Cervantes are the welcoming prisms for them to ring their voices into a fine tapestry of color, sound and light.  Produced while celebrating their 30th year together as an ensemble, they have gathered this collection into what is a curator’s wish list for an evening’s program.  Taking these compositions in their care, they tend to invert, change time signature and reharm, but never so far that the lyric doesn’t sing front and center.  And with intermittent a cappella palate cleansers throughout the sequence, the listener gets to experience the set as the artist envisioned.  Also included in this fine array of compositions are two from the group, allowing just enough room to insert a few originals to complete their “Reminiscing in Tempo.”
