Blues Jam is an impressive follow up to Adrienne’s recent instrumental release, Mo’ Puddin’ that quickly climbed the jazz charts.

What sets Blues Jam apart from other albums is the unique combination of a female led, organ/vocal trio. Blues Jam is a showcase of Adrienne’s captivating vocals combined with the propulsive energy of an organ trio. The blend of Marvin’s virtuosity on guitar, Brian’s dynamic drumming, locking in with Adrienne’s left hand bass and innovative bluesy soloing, has come together to create refreshing new versions of songs in the spirit of BB King, Ray Charles, Billie Holiday and others.

Adrienne Fenemor, jazz organist, vocalist, composer and band leader was born and raised in Nelson, New Zealand. Some of her earliest influences started when she was just 4, listening to her dad as he practiced and performed on his organ. After discovering Oscar Peterson at the age of 13, Adrienne knew she was destined and determined to be a great jazz musician.

Adrienne, currently based in New York City since 2009, can be found performing in iconic venues such as Showman’s Jazz Club, BB Kings Blues Club and The Red Rooster. Her insuppressible goal is to entertain audiences around the world with the unique sound that she has captured on this new album.
