On Sunday, September 26th, from 2:00 to 5:00 PM (Pacific), the Sunday Jazz Salon will present the singer described by the NY Times as, “Perhaps the finest jazz singer singing today…”, the divine Mary Stallings!
While still a teenager, Mary sang with Dizzy Gillespie, Ben Webster, and Cab Calloway, before becoming the featured singer with the great Count Basie Band, for the decade of her 20s.
After retiring from music to raise a family, Mary returned to singing, while in her 50s. In her first gig at the Village Vanguard, the NY Times reviewer began his review with, “Perhaps the bestjazz singer singing today…”.
Backing Mary will be an exceptional band.
Bruce Forman, one of the greatest guitarists playing today, has appeared with Ray Brown, George Cables, Joe Henderson, Freddie Hubbard, Bobby Hutcherson, and Woody Shaw, and will knock your socks off!
One of the greatest virtuoso vibraphonists, Nick Mancini, will be flying in for the gig from Tulsa!
Danny Janklow is one of the most exciting alto sax players in the country, and, though only in his 30s, has already appeared with Stevie Wonder, Kendrick Lamar, Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, George Benson, Wynton & Branford Marsalis, Benny Golson, Eric Reed, and theVanguard JazzOrchestra.
Drummer Clayton Cameron followed his many years playing with Sammy Davis, Jr., by spending nearly two decades backing the legendary Tony Bennett!
