Jazz in the Neighborhood Presents: “High Standards” - Wesla along with Mike and his trio explore the wonders of the Great American Songbook, from George Gershwin to Rodgers & Hart, from Harry Warren to Leonard Bernstein. Mike’s trio features legendary bassist Dean Reilly and swinging Bob Blankenship on drums. This concert will be performed at the Community Church of Mill Valley in our 'First Sundays' Series.
Emerging Artist for this show will be vocalist Andrea Claburn. Andrea has performed at prominent venues throughout the San Francisco Bay Area, including Yoshi’s, the Freight & Salvage, and the California Jazz Conservatory. Andrea is a “musician’s singer” who can bring harmonically sophisticated material down to earth with energy, wit and a powerful sense of swing.
“For Whitfield, it’s always the words, delivered as if she’s just chosen them herself.
Is she the best singer - jazz or whatever around today? No disagreement here”. New York Village Voice.
"Whitfield is, in short, a singer so good that she doesn't have to shout, she doesn't have to overdramatize,and she doesn't have to be anything other than what she is-- a nonpareil musical artist." - Don Heckman - The Los Angeles Times
