Born on April 1st In Wilmington, Delaware, Ms Lazarus started singing at an early age, imitating the singers she heard on her mother’s record collection of Broadway musicals. After several years of classical piano lessons, she switched to saxophone in order to play in the school band. By 16, she was singing and playing tenor saxophone with the American Youth Jazz Band and went on a European tour that culminated in an appearance at the Montreux Jazz Festival. While studying English literature at Harvard University, Ms. Lazarus continued playing and singing jazz and studied briefly with Harvard Artist in Residence, Illinois Jacquet. He encouraged her to become a professional jazz artist and invited her to perform with his big band during a European tour. At the end of her final year at Harvard, she won the Downbeat student music award for “Best Jazz Vocal Soloist"—college division.

After graduation, Sara moved to Paris and began working steadily in various club and concert settings. She worked with pianists Jacky Terrasson, Alain Jean-Marie; bassists Riccardo del Fra, Pierre Boussaguet; drummers Steve Williams, Sangoma Everett and performed at many festivals including Jazz In Marciac, JVC Paris Jazz Festival, Vienne and the Red Sea Jazz Festival. In 1994, Miss Lazarus was awarded first prize in the prestigious Thelonious Monk International Jazz Vocal Competition. Her first solo Cd, Give Me The Simple Life (Dreyfus Jazz) was released to rave reviews. She was nominated for the French “Victoires de Jazz” and toured extensively throughout France.Her most recent Cd, It's All Right With Me (also on Dreyfus Jazz) finds Miss Lazarus in the company of the phenomenal French gypsy guitarist Bireli Lagrene. Highlighting Sara’s hard swinging phrasing and multi-colored voice, this second album has established her as one of today’s outstanding jazz vocal artists
