Personal Quote:

Above all, I'm a jazz singer who likes to mess with the melody. I sing the songs that touch me in the heart, the songs I would like to sing to someone in front of a roaring fire...But don't get me wrong. We don't live in a fantasy world, though we all have one. (from an interview with the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette in 1997)


Johnny Carson was such a huge fan of Rankin's that he invited him to perform on The Tonight Show more than 20 times, and wrote the liner notes to his 1967 debut album, 'Mind Dusters'. See more »
