NJW Presents Dara Tucker
On Friday, May 24 at 8 PM, the Nashville Jazz Workshop is delighted to welcome vocalist Dara Tucker back to the Jazz Cave. Dara's previous appearances have all been sold-out affairs, and we don't expect this one to be any different.
Dara Tucker is a versatile and creative vocalist and composer based in Nashville. She has performed nationally at the famous Blue Note, Snug Harbor, the San Jose Jazz Festival, and Scullers. Daras style is heavily influenced by the sounds of gospel, American folk, and jazz music.
An earlier CD, The Sun Season, was released in 2014. It features original material and a roster of top New York players including pianist Helen Sung, drummer Donald Edwards, guitarist Peter Bernstein, and horn players John Ellis and Alan Ferber.
On his popular blog, Jazzwax, Wall Street Journal Music Critic Marc Myers said of The Sun Season, "I can't remember the last time I heard a new vocalist who impressed me so completely as Tucker. She has a beautiful, soulful voice, and her original songs are honest and innocent personal expressions backed by languid arrangements and skilled playing."
Dara's most recent CD release, Oklahoma Rain, features original songs that Dara describes as "a reflection on love, healing, and loss." She has a new CD in the works.
Dara also teaches classes at the Jazz Workshop and recently has delivered two stunning performances in NJW's Jazz on the Move series, last year focusing on Nancy Wilson and this year on Nina Simone
