Über Judy Niemack:

“. . . one of the best, and purest jazz singers ever . . . a voice with the clarity of a mountain stream, accuracy of pitch and time that is a wonder to hear, perfect diction and sensitivity to lyrics, and with a disciplined improvisational gift that makes her scat-sung lines music.” L.A. Jazz Scene

Singer Judy Niemack is a pure musician, exploring jazz like a virtuoso horn player. Her delivery of lyrics focuses on feeling, while she breaks new ground with originals and a modern approach to standards. She has written lyrics for over 100 compositions by Thelonious Monk, Bill Evans, Richie Beirach, Peter Bernstein, Clifford Brown, Lee Konitz, Pat Metheny, Kenny Dorham and Mike Stern, among others.

Over the ensuing years in New York City Niemack has recorded 11 CDs as a leader, with such jazz luminaries as Kenny Barron, Fred Hersch, Joe Lovano, Toots Thielemans, Mal Waldron, Cedar Walton and Kenny Werner. New York Stories, with the Danish Radio Big Band and Jim McNeely was released in August, 2018.

In a 4.5 star review Fred Bouchard wrote: “Hard times got you down? Trust Judy Niemack to banish blues, blahs, and social despair…Sounding fresh as her ingénue debut with Warne Marsh in 1978, this sunny mistress of pinpoint articulation, exuberant scat, and riveting vocalese soars from aerie to peak on Jim McNeely’s pellucid, catchy charts, abrim with vitality and subtle quotes, all navigated with cool aplomb by the Danish RBB.”

Judy currently divides her time between New York City and Berlin where as Germany’s first professor of jazz voice since 1995, she led the vocal department at the Jazz Institut Berlin, and continues to perform in clubs, concerts and festivals around the world.
