Midnight at the Oasis

It was more than 40 years ago that Lynn Ross began to sing jazz standards in the studios at CHSJ Television, St. John, New Brunswick, Canada. Jazz is her thing and it has been her whole life, starting with jazz and tap dancing throughout her childhood. It was the music she danced to.

Viva Las Vegas

Thinking back, she never imagined that she would grow up and enjoy singing the same songs. She loves the great composers of the 30s and 40s, and delights in the fact that there is a familiar tune for everyone in her repertoire.

Lynn’s phrasing, understanding and interpretations are derived from singers like Ella Fitzgerald, Anita O’Day, Sarah Vaughan, Billie Holiday and Rosemary Clooney. Spectacular influence that has helped Lynn remain true to composition, yet full of jazzy surprises.

Singing her whole life, and still quite excited about music opportunity and experiences, Lynn has always tried to be in the best music company possible. In Canada, she regularly worked with jazz pianists Norm Amadio and Bernie Senensky, both covered in the Canadian Music Encyclopedia. Jazz guitarists are dear to her heart as well – in Canada, she worked with Lorne Lofsky (who played for a while with the late great Canadian legend, Oscar Peterson) and in Las Vegas at the Fremont Street Jazz Festival some years ago with jazz guitar virtuoso, Joe Lano. More recently in Las Vegas, Lynn has performed with the Las Vegas Jazz Society and also the Musician’s Union, President – Frank Leone, a very accomplished piano player and his Jazz Trio. In Dallas, one of Lynn’s favorite musicians whom she worked with on a semi-regular basis for about a year at her popular Jazz Jam, was the late Marchel Ivery, an amazingly talented and gracious tenor Saxophonist.

“I’m a jazz vocalist first and foremost and love to sing standards. The freedom of jazz allows me to take just about every song and make it different each time I sing it. By this I mean to say, that as well the opportunity to improvise on the melody, intro and ending – I get the freedom to play with the tempo and style as well. I love it! It keeps the song new and exciting for me. The wonderful thing about doing songs from the Great American Songbook is that no matter what a person’s favorite type of music is – the chances that they have never heard at least one song is very slim indeed. Everyone likes at least one song and that’s a great start.”
