American Jazz vocalist Joan Minor interprets Jazz classics with
soul-stirring veracity. As a solo performer, she has performed worldwide, across the U.S.A, Europe and Africa, including San Francisco, New York, Paris, Berlin, Zermatt and Athens. Her CD 'Integrity Matters', recorded in Paris, warranted praise by the iconic Blues legend, Mr. B.B. King.
In addition to solo performances, Joan designs and conducts master jazz classes and workshops; and is a vocal coach, and Gospel choir director. Her repertoire is extensive, anchored in the jazz classics, and extends to soul, blues and gospel.
She is a cultural ambassadress for Jazz, conducting multiple tours on behalf of United States State Department in Zambia, Tanzania, and Gabon, where she performed privately for the current President. Her televised work includes the BBC documentary "Destination Music: Zanzibar" and "A Jazz Tribute to George Gershwin" introduced by Michael Feinstein.
