Vocalist Judy Wexler has gobbled up life from the beginning. She majored in psychology and theater in college and immediately on graduating, formed her own theater company. From there, she moved to San Francisco and became a street juggler and--with three girlfriends, who, in Judy’s words were also on the short side--formed a performing group with the fetching name of “Caught In The Act, A Theater Collective of Four Short Women.”
In a jazz world that often focusses on vocal acrobatics, Judy is a refreshingly straight-forward interpreter of song, using her acting experience and soulful focus to bring out the meaning she finds in her favorite music. Judy’s latest CD, Crowded Heart, showcases this attitude.
