Judy Niemack first heard jazz through her mother's Nancy Wilson records. She studied classical singing, but the turning point in her young career was when she met the great tenor-saxophonist Warne Marsh. Starting in the late 1970s, Niemack became a talented composer and a lyricist who wrote words to such pieces as Clifford Brown's "Daahoud," Thelonious Monk's "Misterioso," Bill Evans' "Interplay," Richie Powell's "Time" and Duke Jordan's "Jordu," and songs by Lee Konitz, Pat Metheny, Dexter Gordon, Gigi Gryce, Kenny Dorham, Curtis Fuller, Bob Brookmeyer, Richie Beirach, Don Grolnick, Steve Slagle, Mike Stern, Johnny Griffin and many others. One of the driving forces behind her writing is the desire to have lyrics that are modern and relevant. Niemack performs at the Jazz Forum in Tarrytown with Jim McNeely on piano, Doug Weiss on bass and Leon Parker on drums.
