"The first thing that grabs you about Shaynee Rainbolt is her voice - a warm, rich, multi-hued sound that can range from the intimacy of a sensuous whisper in your ear to a sexy strut down Fifth Avenue. It’s a voice that one can imagine caressing a ballad, or scatting briskly through the changes of “I Got Rhythm” backed by a bop-driven jazz quintet. And that’s just for starters. She is, in other words, a singer for all seasons, underscoring her constant musical eclecticism with the subtleties of jazz-inflected phrasing and a sumptuous tone." Don Heckman Don Heckman writes about jazz and world music for the Los Angeles Times, Jazz Times and elsewhere A unique and gifted storyteller with a sumptuous tone and instrumentally oriented jazz chops, Shaynee swings, scats, croons and connects with every word. An entertainer singing music from all eras, with a mix of warm nostalgia and present-day excitement that is appealing to young and old alike. A seasoned recording artist, her first two CD’s: From This Moment On, and At Home, were released to critical acclaim on 33Jazz Records out of the UK (www.33jazz.com). Shaynee's third CD and most recent project is 100 percent Russell Garcia - composed, conducted and arranged by the 94 year-old legend himself. One of Jazz's foremost composer, conductor, arrangers, it is thrilling to finally see a project consisting solely of his originals for voice and his signature Four Trombone Band sound.
