About the Performers

Jane Scheckter is a Bistro Award winner and a five-time MAC award nominee. The New York Times wrote of her “bright clear voice with a brassy edge and a luscious, rounded vibrato, meticulous phrasing, a sultry lower register…and she swings!” Her latest CD, “Easy to Remember” was hailed as “Easily the finest songbook album of the year” by Jazzwax. Earlier CDs were similarly well-reviewed, critics cheering her “Ella-styled artistry” (Downbeat) and “A brilliant star” (Daily News). She has played the major New York venues, most recently Birdland and Jazz at Lincoln Center for the Cabaret Convention. She sings regularly locally, in Paris and on the Cote d’Azur.

Pianist-to-the-trade Jon Delfin has been a fixture in cabaret venues, theaters, audition spaces, rehearsal halls, and classrooms in New York City since the Carter administration. He’s toured the world with “Bob Fosse’s Dancin’,” “Paved With Gold,” and singer Jane Olivor, played countless shows for Vocal Ease, Sing for Hope, and “Songs of Hope,” and assisted the music director at Ringling Bros. Winter Quarters. He currently accompanies musical theater classes for Miriam Fond and Richard Sabellico, and will next support singers Judy Feldman and Joannie Mackenzie at Don’t Tell Mama in the fall.
