There was a time when jazz musicians, especially singers, were able to nestle into clubs, music halls and hotels, playing nightly gigs for weeks and even months on end. As time went by, these long-term engagements disappeared from the nightlife of cities such as New York, Chicago and Los Angeles. Jazz became a series of one-night-stands, of musicians playing one show and then moving on to the next club in the next city. While many jazz musicians have simply become used to playing one night here and one night there, others have looked beyond American shores for other options. One vocalist who has gone overseas to hone her craft, and has developed a healthy performing career in the process, is Joy Voeth. Originally from the Caribbean island of Barbados, Joy’s rich voice and naturally warm presence have delighted audiences all over Asia, Europe and the Americas.
