About
I am a versatile singer blessed with a wide vocal range and the ability to sing any genre of music from r&b to pop. However, I love the American song book, I specialize in jazz standards. I have access to some of the most talented musician in Los Angeles and it's surrounding areas. I will work with you to create a desired package that will easily fit your budget, from a duo, trio, quartet or if necessary an orchestras. I have an extensive repertoire and I have performed for various corporate events, museums, weddings and private parties.
You can rest assure that your events entertainment will be one of class, elegance and professionalism.


I have recorded and released a debut CD of some of the most beautiful jazz standards ever written. Entitled "Sketches of a Dream", the album made it to #1 on over 15 radio station charts throughout the USA, Canada, Europe and the Netherlands. It remained #1 on these charts for a minimum of 3 to 17 weeks.


Here are reviews from several top jazz magazines and newspapers:


It's not often that a debut vocal suggest the near certitude of future greatness,but Rita Edmond's Sketches of a Dream, is of that rare ilk. Edmond recalls two of the all-time greats, reflecting the vocal power and majesty of Sarah Vaughan, the impeccable timing and phrasing of Carmen McRae, and the intense, natural musicality of both.
_JAZZTIMES 10/08


While the jazz world continues to celebrate the celebrity of great contemporary vocalists like Diana Krall and Dianne Reeves, some of the most powerfully emotional, soulful singing and jazzy phrasing and arrangements in the late 2000s are coming from indie artist like Rita Edmond. _ALL MUSIC GUIDE 8/09




Edmond, really brings out something new from the familiar standard.
But that is just it, Edmond, has sign a new lease on the great American songbook and in the process have created an album full of wonderful surprises. _ALL ABOUT JAZZ 4/08


Edmond, possesses, a deep, expressive voice that is especially impressive in the lower registers. Every nuanced syllable brings pleasure. Jazz 2/09



It takes a lot of pure talent to breathe life into old jazz standards that have been repeatedly heard, but with Edmond's four octave range she easily connects with the pure emotions of these songs. _Popjournalism 3/09



It is obvious listening to Sketches of a Dream, Rita is a superior jazz singer who is on the brink of great success. _Scott Yanow 4/08


When a swinging singer like Edmond comes along,you have more than enough reason to cock your ear in her direction. MIDWEST RECORD


One the best vocal releases we've heard in a long time. WESM Radio
