Lost in the Stars
Rising star in the world of vocal jazz, Tianna Hall delivers with an exceptionally creative album featuring the musicianship and improvisational skill of her band, the Mexico City Jazz Trio: Agustin Bernal-Bass, Miguel Villicana-Piano & Gabriel Puentes-Drums. Then, of course there is her buttery phrasing and lush tone... purrrrrrfect... B I O G R A P H Y Tianna Hall is a 27 year-old Vocalist from Houston, Texas and a former titleholder of the Miss America Organization. She began honing her craft at the age of 4 and only found her musical path and rightful destination three years ago in jazz. She was working professionally in regional musical theater houses & performing as a 'legit' operatic vocalist for 10 years before Houston pianist/composer/arranger Paul English encouraged her to pursue jazz. Her natural ability and instincts would allow her to blossom into an exceptional jazz vocalist and she soon became the most sought after working singer in the city. Tianna has been blessed to work with some of the finest musicians in the world and is thrilled about this release with her band from Mexico. She was encouraged by bandleader, bassist and mentor Agustin Bernal to come down to Mexico City to record with his trio and this spectacular musical endevour is the end result. Some of Miss Hall's musical mentors and influences include pianists Dave Catney, Fred Hersch, Paul English, Hal Lanier, Vocalist Dana Rogers, and Duke Ellington Orchestra alumnus Marsha Frazier. Tianna's vocals are influenced by varied artists such as Otis Redding, Al Green, Marvin Gaye, Gladys Knight, Patti Labelle, Cecilia Bartoli, Renee Fleming, Maria Callas, Tony Bennett, Sarah Vaughan, Ella Fitzgerald, Diana Krall, Harry Connick, jr., Kurt Elling, Michael Buble & Jane Monheit.
