NEW RELEASE. Sherri Roberts. Anybody’s Spring"a passionate, expressive singer... that makes this performance a classic in the making.”
Geannine Reid, All About Jazz

Anybody’s Spring, vocalist Sherri Roberts’ newest recording, is a celebration of everyone’s favorite season. For over two decades, Sherri has performed a tribute to spring during that most verdant time of year, featuring an intriguing set list of tunes that swings from the jazz compositions of Clifford Brown and Tadd Dameron to the standard and not-so standard fare of Rodgers and Hammerstein, Hoagy Carmichael and Blossom Dearie favorite- Bob Haymes. 

Now twelve of those tunes find themselves on Sherri’s 5th album as a leader and her third for Pacific Coast Jazz/ Blue House Recordings. Following 2013’s duo outing, Lovely Days, with the brilliant but little documented Bliss Rodriguez on piano, Sherri returns to the winning format of her first three recordings: all highly regarded small group sessions, produced and arranged by bassist Harvie S. With S back in the fold, this time more as collaborator than leader, Anybody’s Spring boasts a stellar bi-coastal rhythm section alongside him: David Udolf on piano, Akira Tana on drums, and Sheryl Bailey on guitar. Their democratically conceived arrangements groove hard and weave freely around Sherri - lifting her sensuous voice in an embrace of interactive improvisation. Like the season of spring itself, Sherri is indeed “a breath of fresh air...pure and unaffected,” (Kirk Silsbee, Los Angeles City Beat.) 

Sherri’s earlier recordings include two acclaimed albums for Brownstone Records, Twilight World (1996) and Dreamsville (1998), with The Sky Could Send You (2006) and Lovely Days following on PCJ. About the former CD, Christopher Loudon wrote in JazzTimes“Stylistically, Roberts bears a significant resemblance to gin ’n’ satin seductress Julie London. But where London’s voice was distant as a winter moon, Roberts’ is all dappled sunshine. . . shimmering delicacy. . . Enchanting.” 

All of Sherri’s cds, including Anybody’s Spring (Pacific Coast Jazz PJ72003,)
are available through major music retailers nationwide such as iTunes, Amazon, CDBaby, or autographed copies can be purchased directly from the artist through her website: www.sherri-roberts.com/order
