Long before she became known as a Golden Globe-nominated actress, Ringwald was singing. She started performing with her pianist father's jazz band when she was three and she has never stopped."I had quite the musical repertoire," she recalls with a laugh. "It was pretty much traditional jazz but there was some Bessie Smith and Helen Kane, the original Betty Boop." Talk with Ringwald for even a short amount of time and it's clear her grasp of jazz and its history comes from a lifelong study of the form and the great singers who inspired her, including Smith, Ella Fitzgerald, Blossom Dearie and Susannah McCorkle. As much as I love traditional jazz, my real interest is more modern, more from the Great American Song Book."
