F E A T U R E D QUOTES
Kicking it old school throughout, Lee is a classic jazz vocalist that knows how to swing the oldies that you want to hear done right one more time. With the newest track being “Didn’t We”, this journey through the past has no dust on it at all. A real find for genre fans, this gal could lessons on how to get it done. A real smoker.

If you love ladies who know how to bring stories of love to life through jazz vocals, you’re going to HAVE to have Vivian’s August, 2018, release in your collection… just check out her scintillating performance on “Some Other Time“, and you’ll be an “instant believer” in her tantalizing talent – the recording is top-of-the-line, and Vivian’s vocal is among the best I’ve listened to (yet) in 2018.

What a pleasure...such a beautifully warm voice, rhythmically swingin' and pitch perfect! Whooooee! Great taste in tunes too.

“The folks in Vivian's home of Sacramento, and others in neighboring areas of California are fortunate to have an artist of quality like Vivian Lee in their midst. Discovering her for the first time has been a true pleasure.
Joe Lang, Jersey Jazz
I hired you solely on your reputation and recommendation, so I was completely taken by surprise with your performance. From the moment you struck the first note the audience was instantly taken in with the emotional warmth of your presence, your calm and enticing voice, and the remarkable level of support from your ensemble. I immediately understood why you are generally recognized as the gold standard for jazz in the greater Sacramento area
David Clouse, talent buyer Stonehouse Restaurant
