Jazz Vocalist. She enjoyed a successful career during the 1960s when she recorded several albums and performed on several popular TV programs. Born into a musically-inclined, New England family, she made name for herself locally on the Rhode Island nightclub circuit. Her break in the industry came in 1960 when she caught the attention of brother musicians Les and Larry Elgart, which led to an engagement in New York and a tour on the road. By now, working with lyricist Jon Hendricks, she was introduced to a wider audience when she performed at the 1961 Newport Jazz Festival, as she sang the Rodgers & Hart score "Little Girl Blue." One year later (1962), she recorded her first album "Live at 30th Street" (1962), and followed it with "Out of the Blue" (1962). During the decade, she performed on the television programs "The New Steve Allen Show," "Talent Scouts" and "The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson." In addition, she was the opening act for comedians Jackie Mason, Stiller & Meara, and Godfrey Cambridge. During the 1970s she worked as a legal secretary, however, she gravitated back to music and recorded several albums during the 1980s and 1990s.
