Mary Kay - belgian jazz vocals lyrics - GAM Music



Belgian jazz vocalist and lyricist Mary Kay has had an unusual career as a real Jazz singer.

Starting in her hometown Brussels, where she already was featured with the top big bands as a teenager, then touring and performing with Benny Goodman who wanted to bring her back to the USA to be featured with his band.

Then, after a long self-imposed break to raise her children, she came back with a vengeance, performing  and touring with such heavy weights as piano master Eugen Cicero, Toots Thielemans, Peter Herbolzheimer and even as a featured soloist with Quincy Jones’ big band at the Montreux Jazz Festival.

In the Meantime, Mary Kay surrounded herself with Belgian jazz heavies such as Bruno Castellucci, Jean Warland, and Francis Coppieters, as well as young lions like Jeanfrançois Prins (who produced her album, and arranged and played for her for several years), Bart De Nolf, Nathalie Loriers, Vincent Bruyninckx,…

Her only released recording to date “Make Someone Happy” documents the depth of her expression, her impeccable time feel, the agility of her warm voice and her total ballad mastery.

Make Someone Happy

"Mary Kay has been "singing her heart out" for many years, and finally had the opportunity to make a recording surrounded by some of the finest Belgian musicians.
I was very happy to participate in the project. Open your heart to Mary's heart and "she'll make you happy"" Toots Thielemans
