Chatting With Sherri welcomes singer and talk show host; Jennifer Perry!
Jennifer Perry has performed in clubs and arenas from Atlanta, Georgia to New York City; as well as television and radio. Yet, she took an unusual path to becoming a jazz vocalist.
Starting as producer, writer and host of a cable television entertainment show, she then began doing standup comedy and emceeing events until she felt ready to form her own jazz combo and perform.
The Jennifer Perry Combo's forte has been jazz, swing, bebop, torch and a bit of Latin music. In 2009 Perry began adding R&B,Blues, funk, and 60s-80s Europop. Often contracted for corporate events, the versatility of repertoire increased the group's popularity.
She's been compared to Annie Ross, whom she interviewed on her show, Julie London, Lani Hall and Anita O'Day. In 2001 Perry met Miss O'Day and began a friendship that included traveling to Los Angeles, San Francisco and New York quite often attending her shows, helping her prepare and working her merchandise table.
