On Saturday, March 16th @ 1 pm, Payson Friends of Jazz member and professional pianist Lew Turano will be bringing the much talented vocalist Michele Grace to Payson to perform in a quartet. Lew is a long time friend of jazz fans in the Payson area -- he spends a good part of the year in Sedona. The rest of the time Lew performs with Michele around the New England area.
Taking a short break from performing in the east, Michele will be vacationing in Arizona, and as luck will have it, she agreed to perform for us in Payson. She is a professional singer, actor and teacher, performing all over the eastern tri-state area including New York City's Le Cirque, The Yale Club and the Carlyle. And she performs with Lew, who is a masterful pianist. Together they entertain with a variety of music; The American Songbook, jazz standards, Broadway favorites, a little country and pop.... they bring together Theater and Jazz skills for a unique and entertaining musical afternoon. Bassist Steve Douglas and drummer Gerry Reynolds will complete the group.
Please plan to attend -- the Payson Community Presbyterian Church (800 W. Main St.), Payson Friends of Jazz and live music fans in Rim Country support this event, so I hope to see you on March 16th. There is a minimum $5 donation at the door and refreshments at the intermission.
