Some singers have a way with a phrase or a moment that attracts listeners with instant magnetism.
Everyone?s ear will interpret her differently, but I like the fluid rap style she brings to her style of jazz in one song and the classic bop present in another.
Rooker sings jazz along a metaphorical urban street that borders rap and R&B, while still reflecting the traditional conventions of the genre, including innovation.
She?s a young woman whose bio still talks about what she studied in college, but her new album, The Only Way Out Is In, with her band, Stephanie Rooker and the Search Engine, is a master?s in musical selection and maturity.
You can see Stephanie Rooker and The Search Engine at the famous Blue Note nightclub in Manhattan on Friday, Dec. 17.

STEPHANIE ROOKER audio excerpt: "My voice students want to know, 'When will I find my voice?' But what's exciting is that it's an infinite road that keeps unfolding. I've had several milestones in my life where I hit a new level with my voice, performance, writing or self-expression that I didn't know existed."
