Smooth Jazz Singer At Unity Church

Giving new meaning to soothing the soul.


(Services will be held at 11:11 am at Unity Church of San Leandro, 1420 Santa Maria Street, San Leandro, CA 94577.)

Cheri “Note” Anderson is a silky smooth singer/songwriter who artfully blends classic Jazz, contemporary Jazz, and R & B, with lyrics that are rooted in love. Her unique style, she has coined as “Jazzin’ the Spirit”, is a fusion of Jazz and inspirational music.

Each song, be it original or standard, is belted with the smoothness of Nancy Wilson and the huskiness of Phyllis Hyman, in a range that reaches five octaves! Her music has been described as rich, rhythmic, sassy, and enlightening.

Cheri is a former member of Funk-a-fied (later became known as Midnight Star) and has opened for Nancy Wilson, Maxi Priest, Phil Perry, and E.W.FPatrice Rushen produced earlier projects. She has also performed with Benny Maupin of "Head Hunters" fame, and has jammed with Roy Ayers, Jennifer Lewis, and Billy Mitchell. 

Cheri has performed on radio, television, and in corporate board rooms. Her mission is to inspire people in thinking more positively about life, living their lives fully, and being "in love" with the blessings of life.  Her passion is sharing this through music.  Her CD "Jazzin' the Spirit" is played on Unity Radio, Positive Music Radio, ITunes, and Myspace.

Cheri is part of the Positive Music Movement, a new expression that features inspirational lyrics with all genres of music.  She has introduced contemporary Jazz to this new expression, putting her mark on the movement with funky beats, rhythmic sounds, and soulful riffs pioneering an eclectic blend of inspirational lyrics with stirring background music that moves the listener.

”Cheri’s music touches your  Soul.”  

These days you'll see Cheri engaged in creating a "buzz" singing at Venues in the Bay Area with some amazing Female Vocalists and Instrumentalists, along with introducing her "Jazzin' the Spirit Positive Music  Movement."

It says on the Unity Church website that there are "Jazz Sundays" the second Sunday of the month throughout the summer. Any other performers of note coming up in August?

Also on Cheri's website it lists her as returning to Unity in San Leandro on July 29, so if that is the case there will be another opportunity to hear her locally. http://www.cheriandersonmusic.com/

Mary Watkins is the amazing pianist. Carole is right. They are awesome. Trevelyn Lee is on drums and Cheri Anderson will sing again on July 29th. Then on the 2nd Sunday for "Jazzin the Spirit".

Andoni is a gifted artist. Bring tissue when he hits your spirit/heart. You have to pay a cover charge at local venues to hear him; he gives his gift freely at Unity!
