Sheila Jordan has had a remarkable career as a jazz singer and an educator, and was the first to perform full-length vocal-bass duet sets.

One of the few active performers at the time who could say that she performed with Charlie Parker (who was her inspiration), Sheila Jordan was 92 at the time of this 2021 performance.

Accompanied by bassist Harvie S with guitarist Roni Ben-Hur looking on, Sheila Jordan performs a witty and personal version of Oscar Brown Jr.’s “Dat Dere.”
