Renowned jazz vocalist Patricia Adams ( is finally appearing at the Metropolitan Room. After appearing for years at New York’s Triad, Arci’s Place, Kavehaz Jazz Gallery, Chez Suzette in Manhattan, and having been at Cambridge’s famous Ryles Jazz Club since 1999, it was only a matter of time for Patricia to take her microphone to Manhattan’s famous Metropolitan Room on Sunday, May 25th at 4 PM.

Patricia has been a longtime interpreter of not-so-standard vocal standards. She plans on an hour of songs ranging from little gems of Tin Pan Alley, the Harlem Renaissance to the great Fats Waller’s “This Joint is Jumpin, promising a thumping, walloping rendition of the tune! Along with her accompanist Steve Wright, Patricia will entertain her audience with story and song that she has known her entire life, and cannot wait to share it with this new audience.

Patricia grew up in the 1940s in Hastings-on-Hudson, New York. She sang in her early years but put singing aside and earned a BS and MBA and for the next 35 years worked for several Fortune 500 companies in Human Resources. She rediscovered her voice 20 years ago, finally trading her “day job” for that of a vocalist.

According to Elzy Kolb of “Hot House Magazine” (04/2012), “Ms. Adams started singing at open mics 20 years ago, with the goal of being the best singer in the room. She noticed that some of the regulars sounded very polished. “And then there were the rest of us”, Patricia said. “Music Education was a big differentiator. I realized I had to go back to school to achieve my singing goals.” And so, at age 54, Adams enrolled at the New England Conservatory, Department of Contemporary Improvisation (where she studied music theory, harmony and improvisation with greats like Ran Blake.)

Patricia Adams made her professional singing debut at Boston’s famous Scullers Jazz Club in 1992 and she has been singing ever since.  She just celebrated her ten-year anniversary at playing Sunday Brunch every first Sunday at Ryles Jazz Club in Cambridge, Massachusetts, accompanied by the Ray Santisi Trio.

Patricia, who has fans of her brand of 1930s and 1940s standards in the thousands, has a total of eight CDs available on Amazon, CD Baby and iTunes ( You can find them on her website

What the Critics and Fans are saying about Ms. Patricia Adams:

“Patricia Adams Trio is superb. No gimmicks. Just really good music.” – Cadence Magazine

“…a remarkable jazz performer and musicologist.” – Somers Record

“Patricia Adams sings as if she’s been entertaining audiences all her life. How can a woman with this many years in middle management sound so warm and personable, and even a bit like Lena Horne? One doesn’t know but she’s got it! She brings her quartet to Ryles first Sundays. It’ a knockout of a show.” --Weekend Arts, Boston Globe
