Anne performs at festivals and jazz clubs in Chicago and throughout the Midwest, as well as Pittsburgh and NYC. Favorite performances include 5 years singing at the Taste of Chicago, Park West, University of Chicago's Jazz at the Logan and sold out shows at Andy's Jazz Club. Anne Burnell's newest release, "Summer Days & Dreamy Nights," celebrates her friendship with renowned guitarist Henry Johnson, who produced and arranged the CD, and plays acoustic and electric on the 13 track set. Burnell's last release, "Blues in the Night," featured arrangements by Count Basie Band veteran Bob Ojeda and paid tribute to the composer Harold Arlen. Her recordings have garnered airplay nationwide on numerous NPR and jazz radio stations in major markets.
"Her supple, honeyed vocals flow along the undulating instrumental refrains of the band with splended, smooth, sophistication. Burnell maintains her singularity by avoiding being pigeonholed. She proves herself, once more, adept at a variety of genres to all of which she brings a jazz musician sensibility."
