Enjoy the legendary sounds and tunes of these two jazz pioneers and friends. The collaboration of Ellington's lush textures and compositions with Ella's elegant, warm-timbred voice created a unique energy that will be brought to life by pianist Adam Faulk and vocalist Suzanne Burgess.
The expressive trumpet of Lee Morgan and colorful piano style of Horace Silver are regarded as trendsetters in jazz music for transitioning bebop into the soulful beat of '50s hardbop. Special guest trumpeter Will Wright and pianist Adam Faulk will fill the evening with classic tunes such as Sidewinder, Song for My Father and more.
Motown emanated from the soul and style of jazz. A trip down memory lane will make you feel the power and energy of tunes by Marvin Gaye, the Temptations, Stevie Wonder, Gladys Knight and more and how their music speaks to our current time.
With a dizzying repertoire of genres and extraordinary vocal range, Linda Ronstadt enchanted the world. Whether she was singing Smokey Robinson’s “Ooh Baby Baby” or her own country-tinged “Blue Bayou,” she touched the heart each time. A celebration of this extraordinary musician.
