Based in the San Francisco Bay Area, jazz musician Linda Wiggins continues to perform both for public and private events. Her pianistic style is eclectic, with Linda choosing to invoke early elements of the New Orleans masters, classic standards of Gershwin, Rodgers & Hart, et al.... up through contemporary jazz favorites. The performances can be all instrumental, or she can include her wonderful vocals (a la Diana Krall). Her fellow band musicians include reknown Bay Area stalwarts such as saxophonist Jules Broussard. Whether as a soloist, or with her band, the audience is always in for tasteful entertainment.
Free Sept 2010 public perf: Sun Sept 12 (8am-12 noon) outdoors at the Albany (Calif) Veterans Park. 1325 Portland Ave @ Carmel....note: this park is c. 4 blocks north of the Solano Stroll, so you can go catch Linda's band (yes, they take requests, but will be playing a wide variety of music anyway...and the Lions Club is hosting an adjacent pancake breakfast.) and then go on to the huge Solano Stroll.
VIDEO DEMO - Snippet of Linda performing (voc & piano) a jazzy swing "Honeysuckle Rose" on Youtube....(search LindaVocNKeys).
