She's got a voice, but some of moves are a bit pretentious for a 15 year old.

She has talent, at least in my opinion. If she keeps this up, in three or four years, she may just be a super talent

She certainly is gifted; it's hard to believe that she is only 15 years old. I shall keep an eye out for her in future.

I guess I am in Gary's camp, while she has a very nice jazz voice and it's apparent she has studied the female masters stylings I'd rather just listen than actually watch her perform. Big talent know doubt.

Later,

Maybe she would prefer to be known as a "professional" rather than as a "kid"?
Just a thought....

Sorry guys, but I don't see the amazing part.

She's good. She's a better singer than I am, (and that's not a compliment!).

I doubt that she'll ever make an impact on the jazz scene.

Just my opinion.

Bob

P.S. And the confused part is wondering why she was ever posted. It was a waste of 2min. and 22 seconds.

To me, she's about average. I've heard some good young talent before, but she's far away from being amazing. I play Independent Artists on my Internet Radio shows and I can tell you that there is more "amazement" there, as far as young jazz singers are concerned.

Not to dodge her, but, as I said, she's average. Good, but not amazing.

Cheers,
Mike

Daggone, guys, she's a kid!

That's a pretty good performance from a kid.

The promise shows in her scatting abilities.

That is, indeed, rare these days.

I would rather perform with this singer than with most that I've worked with.

I am hearing some serious skills here in her choice of notes and in her timing. Excellent interaction with the band. She leads when appropriate and sits back when appropriate. They seem to be feeding cues to each other, especially during the scats. She is not leaning on them to make her sound good. All excellent players, who understand and respect each others' place in the overall ensemble.

She`s good. Definately. Not a superstar, but a "rough diamont".
She`s on a good way with the scatting. She hears and sings the resolutions, but doesn`t yet alter scales.
I liked her performance, she behaves like a jazz-singer pro, very solid.

She's Canadian. Dr. Viki Meredith was an adjudicator at a competition she sang in when she was 7 or 8. Viki sits beside me in my Brass Band playing Baritone, with my wife on the other side. Viki is the dean of something and an award winning choral director and on the full time faculty at the local university, where her husband Dr. Henry Meredith teaches 'horns' and music appreciation, and leads the brass band. She thought she was amazing when she was younger. I think most Canadians that listen to jazz have heard her quite a bit. From ye olde wiki:

Nikki Yanofsky (born February 8, 1994), is a young jazz-pop singer from Montreal, Quebec, Canada. She has performed at the Montreal International Jazz Festival, at various events alongside well-known artists such as Oliver Jones, Wyclef Jean, Celine Dion, James Birch and performing the national anthems for the Montreal Canadiens three times and the Los Angeles Lakers.

Nikki has recorded Airmail Special for Verve Records, released on June 5, 2007 on the album We All Love Ella: Celebrating the First Lady of Song. The track was recorded at Bill Schnee Studios by Al Schmitt and was produced by Tommy LiPuma. It was mixed at the famous Capital Studios.

Nikki recorded Gotta Go My Own Way in English and in French for Walt Disney's High School Musical 2. Nikki collaborated with Grammy Award winning musicians Herbie Hancock and Will.i.am (from The Black Eyed Peas) to record a crossover version of the swing era hit Stompin' at the Savoy. It is used on Kareem Abdul Jabbar's audio book On the Shoulders of Giants.

Nikki and her production company A440 Entertainment, Inc., have recently come to a distribution agreement with Universal Canada and her first offering to the public, a live CD/DVD concert package entitled Ella... Of Thee I Swing, has already begun to be sold off stage at her concerts. The official launch of this product was on September 23rd, 2008, supported by several concerts.

Nikki is the youngest performer to headline her own show in the 29 year history of the Montreal International Jazz Festival. It was the summer of 2006 and she was only 12 years old. Since then, she has performed to sold-out crowds at each of the subsequent Montreal festivals. She also performed at the 2009 Montreal Jazz festival edition. She has also performed at Montreal's Bell Centre, The Air Jamaica Jazz and Blues Festival in Montego Bay, with Marvin Hamlisch at Carnegie Hall in New York City and the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C. and with The Count Basie Orchestra at the 2008 Luminato Festival in Toronto.

If I had her money I'd move somewhere warmer ...LOL..

Thanks for posting that information. In some of the other videos I saw of her, she shows off more of her talent. She's the first singer of that age that I have seen that is able to repeat some of Ella's work note for note (such as How High The Moon), and also scat perfectly in tune. Maybe I just haven't seen the young singers, but to me that is pretty impressive for a 14-15 year old.

Some of the posts reminded me of a newspaper forum where people were ripping up a local golfer for being 'un-talented', won one tournament, finishes in the top 200 most of the time, etc.

I couldn't help point out that he's made over 20 million, gets free travel meals, accommodation, massages, golf gear, and has earned around 20 million over the last 5 years and won the Masters. Only one guy was always better and look at him. I expect Mike, who went to BYU, might not fall into the women problems.

So you play Carnegie Hall and I guess you haven't made it yet.

I played the plumber's union hall...despite not being in the union. The kept asking for 'country'. I thought that mean Gord Lightfoot.

That kind of transcribing is the foundation of the art, man.

Where did Ella find her scat?

She transcribed some of the great horn men of the day.

And this young lady transcribed Ella.

Refreshing, after all the others, who seem to be everywhere, who think they can take a shortcut to standing on Ella's shoulders and never seem to realize why they fall flat with it.

Which is why I think this young lady will be able to develop her own compendium to work from if she sticks with it.

And is going to be a shining star one day for it...

User Tip - Slowing Down and Looping Audio in Band-in-a-Box®

Forum user DeaconBlues09 created a video tutorial to help answer a fellow forum user's question:
Using the Audio Chord Wizard to tempo map, slow down, and learn the notes of an audio track - video link http://www.pgmusic.com/?vid=R09Lf3bHjhQ

#TBT - Band-in-a-Box® 2006 for Windows Ear Training Fun!

With the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2006 for Windows we added two great games for ear training: Pitch Invasion and Music Replay!

Pitch Invasion helps to develop perfect pitch as you shoot down "alien" notes invading from above (you hear the note sound, and click on the on-screen piano/MIDI or QWERTY keyboard to shoot them down).

Music Replay develops your pitch, rhythm, and melody recognition by replaying what the program plays, in note, rhythm, or melodic modes.

These games can still be accessed with newer versions of the program - in Band-in-a-Box® 2018 you'll find these by accessing the Practice Window or Ear Training Window, both located in the Window drop-down menu. The Practice Window can also be accessed using the Practice button within the main Band-in-a-Box screen (don't see it? CTRL+T to change the view).

Learn all about the features released with Version 2006 here.

Amazing Band-in-a-Box User Comments!

Great program with lots of support through the publisher and after-market. Use it for teaching, practicing, and gigging.
-Andrew L.

I just got my 6th film placement on a song recorded entirely in Band-in-a-Box. You guys rock!
-Terry Fernihough (Band-in-a-Box Endorsing Artist!)

I love this program. I have only had it for around a month but it has made things a lot easier for me. I no longer have to scour the internet for backing tracks. I just plug in the chords I want to use, find the style I want and done. Saving me so much time and being able to transpose into different keys is awesome too.
As the days go on I will be delving deeper into what it can do, importing some of my backing tracks into Abelton 9 to play with and writing some songs.
Best money I have spent on something in while.
-Peter S.

I started using Band-in-a-Box around 1990. It was the DOS version naturally and I used one of those old portable computers with dual floppy drives and a built in 9" monochrome display. I connected midi cables to a great sounding Yamaha keyboard and played my music using midi tracks. I did a demo for a university music class that was a lot of fun. Wow, it is almost unimaginable to see where this product has elevated to today. I have upgraded many times over the past 28 years but each time I am even more amazed. Thank you PG Music for being such a major part of my love for music all of these years!!!
-Dwayne G.

Incredible Software. Great for ignorance and experts and for anyone who wants to deal with music. If you do not have a hobby and want to have one "band in a box" is the best choice. Simple, but if you want to be an expert on it, you need to make an effort to master it perfectly for perfect use. The only disadvantage is if you do not want to become a musician, and use it, you will become a perfect musician. Therefore, be cautious. It's not a toy.
-Ilija B.

I’ve been using it for about the same time (20 years). I’m a trumpet player and just really want some backing on lead sheets. With the Real Styles - it sounds fantastic! Takes just minutes to input chord changes and find the right style. There is so much you can do and I love having the Soloist features to really add color.
-Mike B.
