Kirsten Gustafson is among the better jazz singers located in Chicago through the 1990s and early 21st century. She understood in early stages that she wished to be considered a vocalist, but remarkably, she didn’t receive any formal performing lessons. Gustafson performed French horn during college and majored in German vocabulary and tradition at North Michigan University. Because the 1970s, she’s sung in a multitude of groups, including rock and roll bands and various varieties of jazz devices. In 1992 she documented her debut jazz recording, You Taught My Center to Sing, for Atlantic. She also performed in the Montreux Jazz Event that yr, but no instant follow-up documenting resulted. In 1994 she sang using the Latin group Samba Bamba. She’s since documented a privately released second Compact disc (2000’s Live at Montreux), done voice-overs and jingles, toured using the Nelson Riddle Orchestra, and performed with arranger Frank Mantooth and violinist Johnny Frigo. Gustafson in addition has performed frequently in Paris.
