Unique jazz vocalist, composer, and arranger, KaylĂ© Brecher (Kay-La BrecKer) is a singer who is at once completely distinctive and an amalgamation of her great musical influences.  Showcase Magazine described her sound as "a supple voice that suggests the pairing of Sheila Jordan and Sarah Vaughan."  One could accurately add Morgana King and Ella Fitzgerald to that description. Hers is a versatile and flexible instrument with wide range, which can move from silky, smooth and subtle to bold and bluesy;  refined to brash and raw.  KaylĂ©'s instrumental and compositional approach to singing leads to explorations of the mood, texture and style in each individual tune, which results in exciting variety. 


Now in its 9th year at the Cheltenham Center for the arts, Jazz Bridge is a non-profit arts organization serving a need no one else is addressing in the Philadelphia area: responding to local jazz and blues artists in times of need. Proceeds from the neighborhood concert series go to help local jazz musicians in personal or professional crisis. Concerts feature prominent jazz and blues musicians during an hour and a half long program which includes a Q&a with the artists and light refreshments.
