“Let’s Fall in Love with the Music of Harold Arlen”

“Chicago does not lack for engaging jazz trumpeters, vocalists, pianists, bandleaders, songwriters and arrangers — but how many can do it all? Jeannie Tanner happens to be one… If you’ve ever been fortunate enough to hear her pick up a horn, or sing a ballad or unveil an original song, you know that she practically exudes music.” -Howard Reich, Chicago Tribune

Jeannie Tanner is a singer-songwriter and trumpeter who performs and records her original music – a mix of jazz, pop, R&B and Latin rhythms. She has earned six ASCAP Composer Awards and has seven Grammy-considered albums. Her latest album, WORDS & MUSIC was named by the Chicago Tribune as one of the Best of 2017. Music Critic Howard Reich wrote: ”A musical chameleon who sings, plays trumpet and composes with equal aplomb, Tanner outdid herself with “Words & Music.”

Ms. Tanner is excited to present her new show at Winter’s Jazz Club. “Let’s Fall in Love with the Music of Harold Arlen” will be an evening of Arlen’s unforgettable melodies including, “I’ve Got the World on a String,” “Over the Rainbow,” “Come Rain or Come Shine,” “One for My Baby” (arr by Dianne Reeves) and “That Old Black Magic” (arr by Herb Alpert and Lani Hall) – and of course, “Let’s Fall in Love.”

Plus, Tanner will debut some brand new material she has written, just for this performance. “I’m reminded of what we call standards,” explained Jason Marck of NPR in describing Tanner’s writing style. “That’s not just Tin Pan Alley with your Gershwins, Porter, your Rodgers and Hart; I also hear Brill Building influences like Mann & Weil, King & Goffin and Bacharach & David…”

Along with Tanner performing some of Mr. Arlen’s best known works, the evening’s audience can expect her original pieces to pay tribute to Arlen’s composition techniques and commitment to memorable melodies. Her love for his songs comes not only from being a vocalist and appreciating his wonderful standards of the Great American Songbook, but also as a songwriter, reaching back over the decades to infuse his writing style with a few of her own tunes.

Ms. Tanner’s songs have been featured in many television shows and movies including “Culinary Travels with Dave Eckert” (PBS/The Travel Channel), “Revenge” (ABC), “Single Ladies” (VH1 – produced by Queen Latifah) “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” (Bravo), “Young and the Restless” (CBS) and the Hallmark holiday movie “Signed, Sealed, Delivered for Christmas.” She is proud to be signed to Heavy Hitters Music in L.A. And, her music can be heard on local, national and international radio via traditional stations, Sirius XM and on the internet where she has her own Pandora station.
