Gifted Jazz Singer/Pianist on SACD!

Born in Oklahoma, Champian Fulton has become a world class Jazz pianist and vocalist with international acclaim. She grew up with music in the home; her mother and father (Jazz trumpeter and educator Stephen Fulton) recognized her fascination with music at an early age. The presence of her father's musician friends, including Clark Terry and Major Holley, inspired her focus on Jazz. Her first paid musical engagement was with her own band at Clark Terry's 75th Birthday Party; she was 10 years old. Since then, her piano and voice skills have been recognized by peers and critics as distinctive and sophisticated. This young woman from Oklahoma captivates audiences in New York's finest Jazz rooms and in concert halls around the world.

A mainstay on the vibrant New York Jazz scene, she has performed with musical royalty such as Lou Donaldson, Frank Wess, Eric Alexander, Buster Williams, and Louis Hayes. From New York to Barcelona, Champian's swinging style and charismatic performances have made her a guardian of the legacy of Jazz. Champian's heroes include Bud Powell, Red Garland, Erroll Garner, Count Basie, Sarah Vaughan, and Dinah Washington.

Recognized as a Rising Jazz Star by the Downbeat Magazine Critic's Poll, Champian also received the "Female Jazz Vocalist Of the Year" at the 2017 Hot House Jazz Magazine Fans Decision Award Ceremony. Her "galvanizing presence" (the New Yorker) and her alluring musical presentation have made her "a charming young steward of the mainstream Jazz tradition" (The New York Times).

"While Fulton's voice is youthful, her vocals often incorporate the touches of a veteran, including a defiant interpretation of 'When Your Lover Has Gone' that has a sassiness reminiscent of Carmen McRae along with her superb vocal inflections and bebop chops in her driving setting of 'September in the Rain.' Fulton also masters slow ballads, such as Duke Ellington's powerful 'All Too Soon,' in which she communicates the sorrow of lost love desiring a reunion as if she has lived the lyrics. The one piece that is not as well known is 'Whistling Away the Dark' (a superb ballad by Henry Mancini and Johnny Mercer, performed in waltz time), which Fulton skillfully interprets as if it has been a part of her repertoire since she began singing. The closing track features Fulton singing 'Tea For Two' over Miner's walking bass, before she and Tainaka join him for a swinging instrumental break. Fulton is a gifted musician who is deserving of wider recognition." - Ken Dryden, All About Jazz

"Champian is the most gifted pure Jazz singer of her generation" - Mark Stryker, Detroit Free Press
