Hale Baskin — So young, so good, so “Classic”
Hale Baskin is endowed with a clear, beautiful voice, a sure sense of swing, and a seemingly innate sense of the nuances of Jazz phrasing as described by San Francisco Jazz critic, Herb Wong. She moves effortlessly from channeling the songbirds of the 1940’s Big Bands to classic Ella Fitzgerald inspired Jazz standards to funky R&B and Motown favorites to down home blues tunes.
Performing with the pros since the age of thirteen, Hale has a bio which could be attached to an entertainment veteran twice her age. By the time she had her nineteenth birthday, Hale was awarded three Down Beat Magazine Student Awards for Jazz performances, recorded two full length CD’s, won a scholarship to Berklee School of Music Summer Program, performed with such notables as Arturo Sandoval, Count Basie Orchestra, Mike Vax Big Band as well as scores of first call jazz musicians at SF Bay Area’s best local venues, was selected as the vocalist for the prestigious SF Jazz High School All Stars Big Band, toured Europe twice with her high schools Advanced Jazz Orchestra and lead her own jazz ensemble booking venues in four western states. Hale is currently working on a music degree at the University of North Texas and spends her spare time touring and performing at events in Central Texas and beyond
