Sally Terrell

“This teacher might have come to this realm a little late down the path, but she must have had the music in her heart the whole time. With smart jazzbo instincts and a forward-thinking vision, she is a thrush for our times. Not traditional and not cutting edge, she occupies her own space nicely and has the skills to pay the bills.”

About

Sally Terrell began a lifelong love affair with piano and singing at age six, poking out melodies alongside her father, a classically trained pianist and jazz aficionado who passed along his love of music while discovering his youngest daughter could play and sing by ear. After building a career as a college writing teacher, Terrell began singing professionally when she and her husband formed the Green Jazz Band. Whether serenading audiences in English, French, or Portuguese, Terrell’s intuitive interpretations and razor-sharp ear showcase a gift for sharing the timeless stories of jazz. The original songs on her latest release, Feel Alive, mark her debut as a singer-songwriter.

5/5
With a seasoned group behind her, and singing lived in lyrics, Sally Terrell’s first release, Just In Time, doesn’t sound like a first outing. It could have been called About Time.

Sally brings a beautiful energy to these songs, breathing new life into them…
