Event

LARRY DUNLAP & BOBBE NORRIS at the Sound Room
The relationship between an accompanist and a singer can be particularly intimate, a musical pas de deux marked by empathetic interplay and crackling creative energy.

For Bobbe Norris, a husky-voiced jazz vocalist, and Larry Dunlap, a witty, hard swinging pianist, the close connection they established on stage quickly lit a spark off the bandstand. Both were veteran performers when they first started working together in the late-70s, and for the past two decades the Bay Area-based couple has maintained one of the most rewarding musical marriages in jazz. Their dazzling musical repartee will be on display.

This wife-husband team present an exciting program of Standards from the Great American Songbook, Jazz and Brazilian music as well as original music with an intuitive communication that only comes from years of performing together. Their music is sensitively arranged and adventurous, making for performances that are full of surprises.

"She reaches into a lyric like she's pulling taffy and brings out the sweetness and rich flavor of each song, discarding anything superfluous or sticky". Rex Reed

Joining them on stage will be Dan Feizli on bass and Jason Lewis on drums.
