Doris Long is a Cleveland treasure. Like a fine wine, rather than diminish
with age, her voice has grown richer and deeper with time and offers a
complexity that draws from 50 plus years of performing. Her debut CD
release Long Overdue is a 17 song collection of Great American Songbook
standards that delivers a smooth finish that lingers long after the final
notes have been heard.
Doris has been making music from the time that she could speak. As a child
she taught herself to sing by listening to Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Sinatra
and Peggy Lee. Throughout her youth she dreamed of a career, but held off
fulfilling her ambition until she had raised three sons. In 1963, piano
player Saul Lucas invited her to sit in with him on weekends, opening the
door to a singing career that continues to this day. Doris has sung with
the best musicians on Cleveland's jazz scene, including the renowned
pianist Ace Carter after he retired from the Count Basie Orchestra.
Rumor has it that he came out of retirement after hearing Doris sing. She
has also performed with Hank Geer at Sammy's, Skeets Ross at the legendary
Theatrical Grill, Buddy Griebel, Pete Selvaggio, Buddy Sullivan and Evelyn
Wright to name a few. Doris was the featured vocalist of The Musical
Theater Project's very first Song is You! concert in 2002.
