Doris J. Davis, Jazz Vocalist

‘’And still I sing!’‘
Oh, we have a new singer in town! Where did she come from? Why haven’t I heard of her before? When and where can I hear her sing again? Some of the more mature jazz lovers, acquainted with the early Indiana jazz scenes on Indiana Avenue, 16th and Northwestern (before Dave’s), North Meridian Street, and the Barrington area know that this is her second go-round. She still has the ability to drive an up tempo song, and confidently relay the soul of a ballad. She is currently working on production of a new CD of songs from the Great American Songbook.

Chuck Workman, local Jazz announcer and columnist gave her a very favorable review in the September 7-14, 2005 issue of Nuvo Newsweekly after hearing her perform in the famous Walker Ballroom.

She began singing under the tutelage of David Baker, Professor of Music, Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University, who at that time was a jazz trombone player / music coach.

In the early years she sang with such music notables as Jimmy Coe, Earl “Fox” Walker, Les Taylor, Claude Bartee, Buddy Parker, Albert Walton, Paul Parker, Tiny Adams and many others. She has performed in the most popular Indiana venues of the day, including The Barrington Lounge, The Place to Play, and the Pink Poodle, occasionally she performed outside Indiana in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, Omaha Nebraska, Cincinnati, Ohio and Terre Haute, Indiana.

She opened for acclaimed comedian, Stepin Fetchit during his appearances in Franklin, Indiana, Cincinnati, Ohio and St. Louis, Missouri (Gaslight Square).
