Judy Niemack

born on March 11, 1954

Born in California, acclaimed jazz vocalist, lyricist and composer Judy Niemack studied classical singing, but the turning point in her studies occurred when she met the great tenor saxophonist Warne Marsh. “I became Warne’s first vocal student. He treated me like a horn player. He assigned me solos by Charlie Parker, Roy Eldridge and others to learn. I learned about improvising from him. He called it instant composition.” Judy studied classical singing at the New England Conservatory and the Cleveland Institute of Music. Moving to New York in 1977, she continued her studies with Marsh. She started teaching jazz voice and improvisation in the late 1970s. Read more...
