Carolyn Lee Jones' rich, silky vocals and extensive repertoire have endeared her to fans and critics. She has released four nationally reviewed CD’s on the independent Catn’round Sound label and 4 singles. With The New Collection a cappella jazz group, a separate album was released led by vocal jazz arranger and Professor Emeritus, Paris Rutherford of the University of North Texas Vocal Jazz Department.
In addition to her regular jazz repertoire, Jones has developed, produced, and performed a series of 6 themed Cabaret jazz shows to sell out crowds. She is honored with the prestigious Cabaret Artist Of The Year Award for 2017 by The Sammons Center For The Arts in Dallas, Tx.
The Satin Dolls Band was inspired by Jones’ successful Hooray for the Girls cabaret-jazz show celebrating women composers, lyricists, librettists and singers of the 20th century and beyond. The Satin Dolls Band performs classic jazz favorites, blues, Broadway, R&B, original compositions and retro-pop with a jazz twist. The band’s name is a nod to the 1953 jazz song Satin Doll, composed by Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn with lyrics by Johnny Mercer. The band is Carolyn Lee Jones (vocalist), Rebecca Cordes (piano) Peggy Honea (bass) Ann MacMillan (drum set) and Joyce Spencer (sax/flute/vocals).
