Although Alex Pangman grew up a couple of generations late to have sung with Teddy Wilson, the vibrant vocalist is proud to be known as Canada’s Sweetheart of Swing. With pipes aplenty, JUNO nominee Pangman possesses the requisite taste, talent and historical knowledge to breathe new life into the sturdy standards and un-standards of the classic jazz era.

A superb song stylist with growing compositional chops, the gifted Toronto scenemaker has built a loyal fanbase amongst jazz listeners and dancers alike through her critically acclaimed work with her stacked Alleycats band in the studio, nightclubs and concert halls across Canada including three stellar showcases at the Montreal International Jazz Festival.
