Anita Wardell – A Profile

Anita_Wardell
Anita Wardell‘s singing is breathtaking. She is noted for her mesmerising vocal improvisations and vocalese lyrics to instrumental solos. Anita is a musician who uses the voice as her instrument, displaying precision and agility, mixed with heartfelt emotion.

Singer Norma Winstone praised her “unexpected vulnerability, which makes her reading of the ballads both beautiful and touching. Her honesty shines in this well-chosen collection of songs.”

Bebop pioneer, Mark Murphy, proclaimed Anita, “a gift from Australia”, adding “What hits me, is how expressive her ballad singing is. Then she has the courage to scat a ballad or two, not unlike a young lady disciple of the Ben Webster school.”

Singer Rose Tait says “Anita’s inspirational teaching absolutely transformed my performance and confidence to a level I never thought possible.  Her enthusiasm is so infectious, I never looked back.”
