Gershwin, Gershwin, Gershwin!
The Gold Coast Jazz Society presents jazz artists Tierney Sutton and the Shelly Berg Trio. Sutton and Berg team up again for an exciting evening of Gershwin inspired jazz. The New York Times says that Sutton is “a pure jazz spirit who respects a song” and Variety boasts that “the lady can swing.” Sutton, who performs frequently with Shelly Berg, is a riveting jazz songstress. She is a five time Grammy nominee and a favorite of the Downbeat Critic’s Poll.
Shelly Berg, the acclaimed Dean of the University of Miami’s Frost School of Music, is regarded as one of the “finest pianists today playing modern mainstream jazz.” The LA Times says Berg is “A whirlwind of motion on the piano bench who never sounds a dull note.” A Grammy nominated jazz artist, Shelly is widely known for his collaborations with vocalists. He has performed, recorded, or arranged for Gloria Estefan, Patti Austin, Bobby McFerrin, Kurt Elling, Michael Feinstein, Renée Fleming, Gregory Porter, Aretha Franklin, Janelle Monáe, Queen Latifa, Lorraine Feather, Monica Mancini, Rita Moreno, Ricky Martin, Kevin Spacey, Dionne Warwick, and Carmen Bradford.
You won’t want to miss this dynamic duo as they move flawlessly through an evening of some of the best of the Great American Songbook and the music of one of American’s greatest composers.
