Jazz Vocalist Rose Colella presents a performance on “The Ladies of Jazz” featuring bassist Rick Shaw & pianist Michael Bluestein, focusing on the music & mastery of jazz singers from Ella Fitzgerald & June Christy, to Blossom Dearie & Sarah Vaughan, and beyond.
Broadcasting live from Black Beagle Sound studio in LA, the trio will play the hits these iconic women made famous, in addition to hidden gems many have yet to discover, including songs recorded by the “Cool”-era vocalists such as Chris Connor, Jeri Southern, and former pin-up model Julie London, along with a nod to “The Chee Chee Girl” Rose Murphy, and an amusing Brazilian Portuguese tune made popular by Rosa Passos.
With songs, stories and commentary, Rose will explore the legends and fascinating history that keeps these Female voices so timeless, and will pay special tribute to one of the trio’s greatest inspirations who recently left us, Annie Ross.
The event starts at 7:00 PM and ends at 8:30 PM. Sponsored by JazzFresno, the Fresno County Public Library, Friends of the Fresno County Public Library and KFSR. This online event is free.
