Linda Dagnello

A native of New Hampshire, Linda has been singing professionally since the early seventies, first in coffee houses, then in jazz rock bands. Further exploring her love of mainstream jazz and swing, she formed The Tiffany Jazz Quintet which played throughout New England in clubs, at concerts and jazz festivals, on television and as opening acts for well knowns such as Stephane Grappelli, Herb Ellis and Barnie Kessel.

Upon moving to Worcester, in 1984 she formed the Dagnello Jazz Quintet. Since that time she has focused on clubs, concerts, and private event work. She has played throughout Worcester at the El Morocco, Jazz at Sunset Series at the Ecotarium, outdoor summer concerts at City Hall, Institute Park, and Elm Park, clubs such as Gilrein's and Union Blues, and WICN's 2005 Brown Bag concert series at Mechanics Hall.

Linda's jazz vocal experience includes everything from duos to big bands, but her main focus remains her quintet and their musical arrangements. A true love of standards, she was influenced by many but works hard to recreate each song in her own voice. Linda can be heard on the CD entitled FEVER released in June of 1995 and on WRITTEN IN THE STARS that came out in March of 2005. Her latest release is available on www.cdbaby.com and iTunes.
