Kevyn Lettau is recognized internationally as a singer with a unique personal
style, blending many different popular song elements into the jazz idiom.
Kevyn got her big break when legendary Brazilian pianist and bandleader, Sergio
Mendes, discovered her in 1984. She toured and recorded with Mendes for eight
years, developing her own vocal style along the way. Al Jarreau was also her
mentor and friend and Kevyn has toured and performed regularly with him over the

Ferrante (keyboardist of the Yellowjackets), Mike Stern, Leni Stern, Bill
Cantos, Yutaka, Jeff Lorber, Peter Sprague and many more.
Kevyn Lettau grew up in Berlin, Germany. At the age of 14 she moved to San Diego
California. By age 17 she’d caught the singing bug and began working with
guitarist Peter Sprague singing R & B, Brazilian music and an interesting blend
of jazz in and around the San Diego area. She recorded two solo albums during
this time, Kevyn Lettau & Brasiljazz. These recordings lead to critical acclaim
and a loyal following both in the U.S. and abroad. She toured extensively in
both Japan and the Phillipines, where she achieved superstar status and became a
spokesmodel for several leading corporations including Phillipines Airlines and
In 1992, Kevyn signed with JVC Music. She recorded four albums for JVC including
Simple Life, Another Season, Universal Language, and The Language of Flowers.
With her next label, Universal Music, she recorded Police, (her exploration of
the music from the pop/rock genre-bending group), Little Things, The Color of
Love and Bye Bye Blackbird with MCG Jazz.
In 2008 Kevyn released What is Enough with guitarist Peter Sprague; a beautiful
acoustic album featuring Brazilian samba and jazz swing vocals.
"The overall sound quality on this XRCD is dynamic, quite a bit better
than a standard CD. All of the instrumentation is vibrant with supple layers.
The Fender Rhodes sounds crisp, not merely atmospheric. Lettau’s voice is
captured in its delicacy and power, always in a flow with the music. The mix is
centered on the basic ensemble (voice, piano, bass, drum, percussion) and
orchestral shading is subtle and not intrusive." -Audiophile Audition, rated
