Carole Lynne, a Jazz vocalist and pianist, currently performs with her Quartet and Trio in cafes and nightclubs from North Jersey to South Jersey. Her smooth, smokey voice and impeccable piano style have made her a favorite in venues all across New Jersey.
In her standards from The American Songbook, Carole's repertoire is influenced by Anita O'Day, Peggy Lee, Carmen McCrae, Billie Holiday, and Shirley Horn. Her early training in classical piano melds with the earthiness of her voice in "Stolen Moments" and "Centerpiece." Her tightly knit Quartet and Trio include, Nick Palmer, John Sheridan and Richard Gerster, all perfect counterpoints to her style.
Carole loves working with guitarists and occasionally works with Sonny Troy and Bob Smith.
Carole holds a diploma from Westminster Choir College Conservatory in Pedagogy. She is in constant demand, teaching voice, classical piano, and keyboard harmony in her private teaching studio of over 25 years in Bordentown, NJ. Carole was chosen to perform this May in the distinguished Steinway Society Concert Series in Princeton.
Growing up in a "Jazz family" Carole's father, Richard Cherubini, a pianist and bassist, played with musicians Tal Farlow, Oscar Pettiford, Kenny Abers, and Bill Comstock of The Four Freshman.
