“Jazz Around Town”
By Scott Yanow
September issue 2014
Los Angeles Jazz Scene
Peggie Perkins, one of Orange County’s best jazz singers, took the long car trip to Upstairs Vitellos in Studio City along with the great pianist Llew Matthews They were joined by bassist John B. Williams and drummer Evan Stone for a night of swinging and witty jazz. Ms. Perkins’ entertained the audience with her stories and wisecracks in addition to her excellent singing. She performed memorable versions of such songs as “Sway,” “The Nearness Of You” (displaying some attractive long tones), “Cry Me A River,” a slow emotional version of “Angel Eyes,” “Moondance,” the Norah Jones hit “Don’t Know Why” and “At Last.” With fine accompaniment by the top-notch and versatile rhythm section (Mathews sounded just like a gospel pianist on “At Last”), Peggie Perkins made one wish that she appeared in Los Angeles County more often
