The Sunday Jazz Salon Concert Featuring Singer Denise Thimes
On Sunday afternoon, March 29, the spirit of "Jazz At The A Frame" will be revived at the beautiful downtown Los Angeles Athletic Club. These monthly Sunday afternoon concerts will feature many of the finest jazz artists from around the country, in a welcoming, elegant private club.
This inaugural concert will feature a singer heralded as the most popular performer in "Jazz At The Frame" history, DENISE THIMES. Denise has performed with such jazz notables as Wynton Marsalis, Clark Terry, Dr. Billy Taylor, Earl May, Benny Powell, and James Moody. She has also graced the stage with the likes of Houston Person, Jimmy & Tootie Heath, Bobby McFerrin, and Bucky Pizzarelli!
In recent years she has appeared and toured Paris with David Sanborn, sung for the Queen of Thailand, Queen Elizabeth II, and President George W. Bush. Denise was hand picked by Aretha Franklin to perform for the Queen of Soul's 72nd birthday celebration in New York!
The band backing Denise includes the very first artist to perform at the Jazz At The A Frame series, saxophonist RICKEY WOODARD, who has performed with Ray, Ella, Frank, Sarah, BB, Stevie, and on the most recent John Legend album!
Trumpeter NOLAN SHAHEED played with both Duke Ellington and Count Basie bands, before touring with Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, Diana Ross, Phil Collins and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band!
