Although given birth to in Denver, CO, Annette Lowman has so far found her best fame like a jazz singer through the 15 years that she spent in Europe. Lowman had been a professional vocalist, mostly carrying out R&B and pop, before she actually found out jazz. In 1980, she was employed in the piano pub at Charlie’s Georgetown in Washington D.C. while its supper golf club room presented such major titles as Sarah Vaughan, Mel Tormé, Sonny Stitt, and Teddy Wilson. Hearing those performers transformed her musical path towards improvised music. With an impulse, Lowman relocated to Paris in 1983. After a tiny struggle, she discovered her method. She produced her documenting debut, made several albums for the Small Music label, and caused tenor saxophonist Archie Shepp, soprano saxophonist Steve Lacy, and pianist Horace Parlan, amongst others. Among her recordings is usually a tribute to Oscar Dark brown, Jr (Dark brown Baby), and a self-titled arranged that features visitor looks by Stanley Turrentine and Maceo Parker. Although she’s maintained a lesser profile since shifting to Portland in 1998, Lowman still performs locally and offers shown to be a masterful and flexible improviser.
