Contemporary jazz and pop music scene. New York-based Atherton
has opened for the likes of Chuck Loeb, Patti Austin, Tito Puente and
saxophonist Najee. In 2004 her debut CD ‘Let Me Inside Your Love’
made its mark on the national contemporary jazz charts, and in 2006
a cut from this album, ‘I Long For Your Love’ was included on the
compilation ‘Ladies of Jazz,’ which also featured Natalie Cole, Candy
Dulfer and Eliane Elias.

Saxophonist/vocalist/songwriter Mindi Abair has been surrounded by talented musicians her entire life. Her paternal grandmother was an opera singer, and her father was a saxophonist and B3 player in a blue-eyed soul group called The Entertainers – a gig that kept the whole family on the road for several years throughout the early ‘70s. By the time the band broke up and the Abairs put down roots in St. Petersburg, Florida, five-year-old Mindi had already demonstrated musical aspirations of her own by taking up the piano.
