Tina sings the all the well-known jazz standards but also seeks out tunes from all genres of music that maintain a timeless appeal, including many that are rarely heard these days. Whether crossing the boundaries from 1930’s jazz and blues to early rock, Tina brings you music that spans the ages. Having also produced and performed her retro rock and jazz’ revival, Tina takes you back to the hit tunes of the fifties, sixties and seventies when rock and jazz shared the charts together.
