Lynne, Gloria

Lynne, Gloria

Lynne, Gloria, jazz/R&B vocalist; b. Harlem, N.Y., Nov. 23, 1931. A singer whose style blurs the distinctions of popular singing, jazz, and blues, Lynne made both straight jazz and jazz-oriented material during the 1950s and 1960s and had some hits on the R&B scene. She has also done some acting and songwriting. With great expressiveness, she is a master at telling a story, building tension, and punctuating a point. She has done more jazz- oriented work in recent years.

Learn more about citation styles

Citation styles gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
