Boston Jazz Voices

Mixed Semi-Pro Ensemble

Based in Boston, MA

It was almost 25 years ago that the seeds of Boston Jazz Voices were sown by a group of renegade barbershop singers who got together to venture beyond the confines of single-sex four-part harmony. The unique and unmistakable sound of Gene Puerling inspired this mixed group of vocal enthusiasts. Well known for his singing and arranging for the Hi-Lo's and the Singers Unlimited, Puerling became the raison d'etre for this newly formed group. His arrangements are characterized by complex and unexpected harmonic twists that make even the most familiar tunes sound new to the ear. Gene Puerling passed away in 2008, but his imprint on vocal jazz lives on. Those who have followed our group over the years will remember us as New England Close Harmony Ensemble, and although we have become Boston Jazz Voices, our dedication to complex harmony has not changed.

A Cappella.
