Event

Sara Gazarek & Josh Nelson
Championed by some of music's most celebrated figures, Sara Gazarek has emerged as a strikingly original artist with limitless potential. With three highly acclaimed CD's under her belt at the young age of 30, Sara has been hailed by the LA Times as "the next important jazz singer," and "impeccable," by the Winnipeg Free Press, Sara continues to seamlessly combine the intimacy of singer/songwriter stylings with the musical and improvisational elements of jazz. Blessed with a gorgeous, translucent voice, excellent pitch, and supple sense of time, Gazarek is steeped in the jazz tradition, but is not afraid to embrace the music that moves her generation. Her newest CD, Blossom & Bee (2012, Palmetto) was released to rave reviews, as Nick Mondello of Jazz Times has noted "'Blossom & Bee' has all the beauty, bite and superb workings of a winner. It's as good  or better  than some recent Grammy-nominated or winning female vocalist efforts." Sara is currently on faculty at the University of Southern California, leading the award-winning vocal jazz ensemble there and teaching privately.

Teaming up with Sara is the amazing pianist, Josh Nelson. A native of Southern California, Josh Nelson maintains a busy schedule as a jazz pianist, composer, and recording artist. At 33 years old, he has made a strong impression on the jazz and songwriting scene on the West Coast. Josh has performed with some of the most respected names in music, including Natalie Cole, Ralph Moore, Christian McBride, Anthony Wilson, Albert "Tootie" Heath, Ernie Watts, Tom Scott, Alex Acuna, Abraham Laboriel, Seamus Blake, Matt Wlson, Jack Sheldon, Peter Erskine, Bob Hurst, Queen Latifah, and Sara Gazarek to name a few.
