Legendary Louis Armstrong Speaks Highly of Jan Daleys Smooth Jazz

She’s got a, “Great Big Beautiful Voice.”  These are the words of the legendary Great American Songbook artist Louis Armstrong who thinks incredibly highly of the swooning smooth jazz vocals of Jan Daley.  Jan Daley is a seasoned veteran of the smooth jazz music scene and recently released her album, “When Sunny Gets Blue.”  This album features tunes from the Great American Songbook that are recorded through the immaculate smooth jazz lense of Daley and her experienced accompanists.

 

Inspired by the great Jack Segal, one of Daley’s late mentors and the original writer of “When Sunny Gets Blue,” Jan Daley performs these tunes with unmatched vocal prowess. Her phenomenal voice floats above the smooth jazz track of her seasoned players and will impress even the most critical smooth jazz listener.

By the time she was 16, she and her older brother Paul Lakatos, a guitar virtuoso, were performing with violinist Sonny Walker, another Roma legend, who jammed regularly with her father and family at impromptu gatherings in her home.

Delilah has refined her music to a beautiful smooth jazz and pop sound. She will be performing this summer in Philadelphia at Warmdaddy’s on Thursday June 20th.
