All About the Singers | Norman Provizer's Jazz Notes

Jan 12, 2018

This week it’s all about singers as both Tierney Sutton and Diane Schuur come to town.  First up is the LA-based and Wisconsin-born Sutton who released her first album in 1998. Sutton is a talented vocalist who simply bills herself as part of the Tierney Sutton Band along with pianist Christian Jacob, drummer Ray Brinker and bassists Kevin Axt and Trey Henry.

The week in live music begins with a bang when Panamanian-born pianist Danilo Pérez wraps up his two-night stay at Dazzle, 1512 Curtis, on Thursday at 6 and 8:30 p.m. (303-839-5100). The pianist is probably best known for being part of Wayne Shorter’s magical rhythm section, but he is a player to behold in any context. This year marks the centennial of Thelonious Monk’s birth and Pérez got a head start on that celebration in 1996 when he released his album PanaMonk.
